  • Note:
    !Doctor and Captain Elisha Sill (Yale College, 1754) was the seventh son,
    and twelfth and youngest child of Joseph and Phebe (Lord) Sill, of Lyme,
    Connecticut. He was born there on April 6, 1730. A brother was graduated at
    Yale College in 1748.
    He settled as a physician in the rural village of Goshen, in his native State,
    and there married Polly, daughter of the Reverend Stephen Heaton (Yale College,
    1733).
    In 1770 he held the rank of Captain in the Militia, and in 1777 he attended
    as surgeon Wolcott's Connecticut brigade, which volunteered for service in the
    latter part of the campaign against Burgoyne. In May, 1771, and again at seven
    sessions in 1782-1785, he served as a Representative in the General Assembly.
    After a long lifetime spent in the practice of his profession, he died in
    Goshen, on January 20, 1808, in his 78th year. His estate was inventoried at
    $8367.
    His children were two daughters and two sons, all of whom survived him.
    The elder daughter married the Honorable Thomas R. Gold (Yale College, 1786),
    a son of the Reverend Hezekiah Gold (Yale College, 1751). The younger son,
    General Theodore Sill, was graduated at Yale College in 1797.
    After Doctor Sill's death his widow and unmarried daughter removed to
    Whitesboro, in Whitestown, Oneida County, New York, the home of the two
    children just mentioned, and there Mrs. Sill died in 1816.
