Excerpt: ... CHAPTER IX. As before stated, Israel Dodge, one of the sons of Tristram Dodge (senior), early emigrated from Block Island, and settled at New London, in the Colony of Connecticut. Among the new inhabitants, between 1670 and 1700, recorded in "Calkins' History of New London," is Israel Dodge, as purchasing and settling on a considerable farm in the North Parish of New London in 1694, which was forty-eight years after the first effort to create the settlement of the town in 1646. In 1705, at the session of the Queen's (Anne) Court Commission, among those returned as settled on Indian lands is Israel Dodge.

Israel Dodge (Junior), his son, had, in 1743, enlisted for the "French War," in the contingent of Colonial Troops that served on the expedition against Cape Breton; and in the next spring (1744) is returned as having died in camp from fever. John Dodge, another son, born at New London in 1727, and died in Connecticut, 1792; married, October 23, 1748, Lydia Rogers, of Pomfret, Conn. They had the family, viz.: Jordan Dodge, born August 6, 1749. John Dodge, born July 12, 1751. Peter Dodge, bo...
