"(II) Joseph, son of George Geer, was born in New London, October 14, 1664. With his brothers Jonathan and Daniel, and brother-in-law, Thomas Gates, Joseph moved to Preston, Connecticut, as short distance from the homestead. He received from his father, by deed dated February 23, 1706-07, a tract of land at Preston and he followed farming there as long as he lived. He died in 1743. He was often chosen as referee in disputes over property boundaries and served on various town committees of a like nature. He married January 7, 1692, Sarah Howard. Children: Joseph, born October 17, 1692, died May 19, 1718, and his estate was administered by his father; Keziah, February 23, 1710; Sarah, September 17, 1712; Benajah, May 31, 1714; Joseph, May 29. 1719; Silas, March 26, 1722; Ezra, mentioned below. The eldest son must have had a different mother from the other children, for there is a lapse of eighteen years between the eldest and second child and the youngest is thirty-two years younger than the eldest.
(III) Ezra, son of Joseph Geer, was born at Preston, May 16, 1724."
