* I have her portrait which goes to the Staten Island Museum at my death

Col. Nicholas Britton (one book has him born 1680 - another quotes from his tombstone that he was born 1679 and died Jan 12 1748 and reads as follows:
"Here lies ye Body of Col. Nicholas Britton aged 61 years Deceased Jan 12 1740."
"Here lies a man of tender heart
Unto the poor in every part.
He never sent the poor away
Which well is nown unto this Day."

on his wife's tombstone it reads:

"Here lies ye Body of Frances, wife of Col. Nicholas Britton - aged 66 years Deceased May ye 7-1748

I did not copy down the verse about her. She was Frances Stillwell, daughter of Lieut. Thomas and Martha (Billew) Stillwell.

Col. N. Britton's will mentioned wife Francke, daughter Martha Moore, daughter Rachel Britton and son Nathaniel Britton's children

Mary, Francke and Martha

From that I gather that his son Nathaniel died before Col. Nicholas.

this was taken from a book entitled - Wilson and Allied Families by Justice - page 107 [Alfred Rudolph Justice, Philadelphia 1929]
In another book, I found that Samuel and Mary (but it didn't say who Mary was) had two daughters - Addra born July 7-1771 and Mary born July 31, 1773.

and a Samuel and Polly Latourette were married May 24, 1797

I have not been able to find what he was Colonel of.
