Roswell was the son of Timothy Raymond and Mary (maiden name unknown). He was born March 8, 1769, in Norwich, New London, CT. His parents died in 1773 in Windham CT of unknown causes when he is four-years-old. Roswell sets off with his new bride, Mary Cary, at the age of 17 on the journey that takes him through Benton, New York and Caistor, Ontario before he lives and dies in Lapeer, MI at 99 years of age.in 1868. I'm attempting to sort out the reasons for his long journeys through the wilderness. Neither Roswell nor his parents, who died in Litchfield CT, show up in WikiTree. Seems his is likely a very interesting story.
