Birth 27 September 1761 Mansfield, Tolland, Connecticut
"Heman Storrs was six feet in height, and weighed over two hundred pounds. He was occupied for a time in manufacturing at Eagleville, but returned to Mansfield and engaged in farming. As characteristic of him, it is related that he was one day going with loaded teams to Norwich, and
was met by another team, which was unloaded. It was very muddy, and each refused to turn out and allow the other to pass. Heman Storrs drove up, left his seat, and seizing the driver of the empty wagon, carried him to the fence, tossed him over, and held him there, telling his own teamsters to drive the empty wagon into the ditch and pass on; which they did. He then released the man, advising him to learn better manners."
