Anna married Brian PENDLETON, son of Caleb PENDLETON and Elizabeth COTTRELL, on 11 Mar 1725 in 1st Church of Stonington, Stonington, New London Co., Conn.. Brian was born in Westerly, Kings Co., Rhode Island and was christened 15 Jun 1701 in 1st Church of Stonington, Stonington, New London Co., Connecticut. He died in Dutchess Co., New York.

BRIAN PENDLETON AND HIS DESCENDANTS, 1599-1910, Compiled by Everett Hall Pendleton, Privatley Printed MCMX, found in the DAR Library, Washington, DC. Page 71.
    32. Brian-4 Pendleton (Caleb-3), was baptized 15 Jun 1701, at the First Church, Stonington, Conn. We have no record of his death and few facts about him appear upon the Westerly records. He lived there and at Stonington until about 1750, when he removed to Dutchess Co., NY, thus becoming the first Pendleton to settle west of Connecticut.
    On the 18th of October, 1727, he convayed to James Pendleton three acres of land in Westerly, "Situated on the northwest corner of land I now live on" (WlL.E., v, 211), and on 6th April 1730, he sold land to his brother Caleb (Ibid., v, 182).
    Brian-4 Pendleton was admitted fireeman at Westerly, RI, 4 May 1731. On the 29th February 1747/8, he gave Benoni Smith receipt for legacy left him by his father, Caleb-3 Pendleton. This receipt was witnessed by John Pendleton (Westerly C & P. Rec, iii, 330).
    According to the schedule of Capt. James-2 Pendleton's will Brian-4 was to receive certain lands at Watch Hill if his brother Caleb-4, Jr., died before their father, Caleb-3. As this event cames to pass, Brian-4 fell heir to this property which he disposed of by an interesting deed dated 17 Feb 1752 (WLE, vii, 388), of which the following is an abstract:
    "I, Brian Pendleton, Late of Westerly . . . RI . . . But now of Batoman's Precinet, Dutchess County . . . NY, yoeman . . . for  . . . 60 pounds paid by Benajah Pendleton of Stonington . . . Conn. . . . yeoman (son of Caleb Pendleton, late of Colchester Deed) . . . have given, granted . . . a certain Tract or Parcell of Land Lying in the Town of Westerly aforesd, as a place known by ye name of Watch Hill, containing about three hundred acres . . . it being all ye land which my honered grandfather James Pendleton Late of Westerly Deed. gave in his last will & Testament to his wife during her natural life & after her Decease to my father Caleb Pendleton Late Deed. . . .& in a schedual anexed to said will ye said land was given (after my said Father's decease) to my above said Deceased Brother Caleb Pendleton, and that if he should die before my above said Father Then the said Land was given to me which both happened that my said brother Caleb Pendleton did die before our father Caleb leaving ye aforesd Benajah to be his heir."
    No record of Brian-4 Pendleton married at Stonington, Conn., 11 March 1725, Anna Wilcox (First Ch. Rec.). She was probably the daughter of William and Dorothy (Palmer) Wilcox, born at Stonington, 14 June 1700, as is indicated by deed of gift given by William Wilcox of Stonington, to his grandson, John Pendleton of Colchester, on the 2nd December, 1754 (Stonington Deeds).

    88. Nathan, b. 3 Dec 1729; no further record of Nathan has been found. It is not unlikely that he was the Nathan Pembleton of Goshen, Orange Co., NY, 1775, ancestor of the Pembleton family of that county.

    92. Abel, d. 1758, in the French and Indian War. The New London Conn., Probate records (Book 6, p. 72), show that on the 11th July 1758, John Pendleton of Groton, with Caleb Pendleton as surety, was apptd. admr. on estate of Abel Pendleton, his brother, late of Stonington, dec. "Aug. 14, 1759, John Pendleton, Admr. on the estate of Abiel Pendleton, late of Stonington, Dec. appd in this Court & Exbd and Inventory of all the Estate of said Dec. which he could find, viz. 20 pounds, 4s, 11d. old Tenr. recd. of the Comtee of Warr in Rhode Isl Govermet, being the Bale due to him said Decd for his Watges as a Soldier iee: som afored is worth 22/6 Lawful Money.
