    Notes 
    • Curtice Cleveland evidently lived at Norwich. The only recorded marriage found of Curtice, 1733-4, occurred when he was aged 32. This circumstancewould seem to indicate that this was a second marriage.

      Looking over the Pierce relatives of Curtice we are led to conjecture that Curtice was twice married, that his first wife was named Persis Gates,that she was the daughter of Simon Gates, who was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Jan 5, 1676, brother of Jonathan Gates, who married Charlestown,Massachusetts, Nov 27, 1712, Persis Shepherd, a daughter of John and Persis Pierce. That the first wife of Curtice was named for his aunt, Mrs.Persis (Shepherd) Gates, who was first cousin to Curtice. Mrs. Persis (Pierce) Shepherd was his aunt, and Mrs. Persis (Pierce) Bridge his greataunt. Evidently Persis was a favorite name in the Pierce family. Thence Persis Cleveland probably received her name.

      Simon Gates may have accompanied his uncle, Thomas Gates, to Norwich in 1703. Not improbably Simon Cleveland was named for Simon Gates. Theearliest records of Simon and Persis Cleveland are found in the Town Records of Salisbury, Litchfield, Connecticut.The juxtaposition of theseentries of their marriage indicate that they were brother and sister. It is thought that they migrated from Norwich to Salisbury before 1756.Descendants of Miriam Cleveland, +74, settled in Woodbury, Litchfield, Connecticut; Miriam named sons Simon Cramer and William Cramer. Simon nameda son William Cleveland. Persis named sons Isaac Coole, Gideon Coole, Samuel Coole, not improbably named for gggrandfather Samuel Pierce. KeziahCleveland, +75, named a child Persis Jones. These namings are significant.

      To Curtice Cleveland the names Gideon and Isaac were so favorite as to be each repeated once in naming his children. Because of the prevalence ofthe name William, and that William Cleveland and Rathbone and Rodman Cleveland lived at New London, Connecticut, close to Norwich, they are added,conjecturally to family of Curtice, not being traced to any other branch.
