From the Public Records of the Colony of Ct. 1769
"This Assembly do establish Mr. Samuel Storrs jun'r to be Captain of the 14th company or trainband in the 5th regiment in this Colony."
This may refer to either Captain Samuel Storrs born in 1701 or his son who was born in 1730.  However, there seems to be a Revolutionary War Marker on the grave of Captain Samuel Storrs born 22/August/1701.

From The Storrs Family, by Charles Storrs, 1886
"Captain Samuel Storrs, of Mansfield, gave a deed of land to his daughter, Martha and her husband, and at their decease to their heirs; this land was probably situated in New Lebanon, NH"
