Miron E. Savage of Bethel, whose death occurring Jan. 19, 1913, was noticed in a former issue of this paper, came from a sturdy American stock. In 1617, two brothers, john and Joseph Savage came from old England and settled in Connecticut. From them sprang nearly all the Savage family in this vicinity. Nathan Savage, born Dec. 25, 1752, died Sept. 27, 1814, a descendant of one of the brothers, served in the War of the Revolution on the staff of General Washington and history states that he was engaged in carrying messages between Gen.

After the war Nathan Savage settled in Windsor, Vermont. He married Elizabeth Sawins Nov. 30, 1785. Their children were Ira, born Feb. 21, 1887; Lucy, born Aug. 17, 1788, and Lynda, born Jan. 24, 1790.
