Susanna as probably descended from Hugh1 Monroe of Long Island, her father David being thought to be his son. Since John1 and Hugh1 are assumed to have been brothers, Joseph 3's m to Susannah would be a marriage of second cousins. Joseph removed to Sharron, CT in 1744, probably settling on the land of his father in Wilton [Norwalk]. Although Jacobus believed all his children to be of Susanna Monroe, evidence would have it otherwise, Joseph3 was granted 4 acres at Norwalk on Nov 3 1720 by Joseph Olmstead who described himself in the deed as father-in-law to the grantee. Joseph Olmstead sold land in Norwalk Feb 13 1726/27 to John Munroe of "New Bristol in the county of Bristol, Massachussets Bay" [Bristol, RI then being in MA and on the Oct 24 of that year, Joseph3 sold to brother Samuel3 5 acres in Norwalk with house and barn. What has led to confusion in Joseph's wives is the fact that both were named Susanna and that in 1731, David of Norwalk left a will in which he named "David, son to my son-in-law Joseph Monroe," but did not, of course name Joseph's other children since they were not his grandchildren. In 1738, Joseph3 is said to have been one of the 1st purchasers at Sharon, CT. He returned to Norwalk [Wilton] and married esther. He is said to have gone to Berkshire County, MA, but he died at Nowwalk. Susanna Monroe
was born on 2 February 1700. She married Joseph Monroe
, son of John Monroe
and Mehetable (Unknown)
, circa 1717 at Norwalk, Fairfield County, Connecticut. Susanna Monroe died before 1720.
