Biography

Below is a summary of the different volumes of the Atwater History and Genealogy.

In the beginning Francis Atwater believed that Titus Atwater was a son of the Enos Atwater, b. 1648, who went south to North Carolina. This just doesn't logically work and he abandoned the notion.

Moses Atwater, son of Titus Atwater.

Moses (no. 1010 ), m. Amy Wilson (b. in 1775; d. 11 Dec 1852) He died 13 Sep 1836 about 56 years old so. b. c. 1780. There's a nice long write up on Moses in volume 2 p. 157 Including his will.

Volume 4 p. 283 contains information on Amy Wilson and additional information on their children:

  1. Wilson b. 3 Dec 1797
  2. Edmund Browere b. 27 May 1804
  3. Lois d. b. 25 Jan 1809; m. John Stroud
  4. Jahaza b. 10 Mar 1810
  5. Celia b. 1815 m. Charles P. Stroud
  6. Jehiel b. 17 Mar 1817


Volume 1

Atwater, Francis. Atwater History and Genealogy. Meriden, Conn.: Printed by The Journal Publishing Company, 1901. at gengophers Downloadable pdf. at Family Search

(pp 121, 148) "Enos (no. 283), son of Enos; went to the South and probably settled in Orange County, North Carolina, where some of his descendants now reside. Tradition says that he had three sons, but gives the name of only one, namely, Titus. (It is conjectured that Asaph, brother of Enos, went with him to the South, and that the three brothers in the Revolutionary army, whose patriotism is celebrated in the family tradition, were Asaph, Enos and Heman.) More uncertainty is felt in regard to this branch of the Atwaters than any other, but it cannot be doubted that Titus, of Orange County, North Carolina, was grandson of Enos (8) of Wallingford."

  1. Titus. according to Francis Atwater (no other information on Titus)

(p. 422/3) "Moses, son of Titus; who undoubtedly was the son of Enos (No. 283), instead of Elafolet as given by Mr. E.W. Atwater, as Enos was born in 1748 and Titus in 177, which does not give years enough for an intervening generation. Moses was a farmer and resided in Hillsboro, N.C. He m. ____ Wilson, b. in 1775; d. in 1845. He d. in 1845"

Moses is attached to parents who did not have children and never left Connecticut. I created a profile for the correct Titus and have changed him.
