Scope and Contents

The Truman Buell family papers relate to the Buell family of Litchfield, Conn., and consist primarily of deeds. There are also bills, receipts, estate documents, and other items. Truman Buell (1786-1867) was a son of Ebenezer Buell (1747-1823) and Hannah Plumb (1749-1835). Deeds document a number of Ebenezer's land acquisitions. In the 1800s, he sold or transferred property to Truman and his other sons. Truman married Nancy Hinman (1785-1866), who was a daughter of Wait Hinman (1748-1846) and Mary Howe Hinman (1757-1837). The collection contains a document relating to the distribution of Mary Hinman's will. In another estate matter documented in the collection, in 1868, the General Assembly was involved in the resolution of Truman Buell's will.
