William Stratton and Abigail Moore

William Stratton and Abigail Moore
by Clifford James Stratton
(Note: William Stratton is Lavona's 5th-great grandfather)

The Moore's were one of the fine old families of Windsor, Connecticut and were one of the first settlers. There is no record on William Stratton before his marriage in Windsor, but he subsequently lived in Windsor and his two sons were born there. In May, 1709, he was in the unfortunate command that set out to invade Canada during the French war. There was much sickness and suffering and many deaths among the troops and there is an entry dated October, 1709 which states that William Stratton "died aboard the vessel coming from Albany.
