James - this is taken from a book from the Genealogical Society of Utah - Sept 8, 1927.
Caleb Colvin, son of Elder James Colvin, received land by the will of his father. He lived in Coventry. He married, August 3, 1740 Anne, daughter of Reverend Thomas Burlingame. His brother Benjamin married, in 1736, Eleanor, another daughter of Reverend Thomas Burlingame. This Benjamin was first of Warwick and afterwards of Bennington, VT.
With regard to the children of Caleb and Anne, it is probable that there were several who died young, as we find the record of three children of Caleb Colvin in Coventry 1740-1743. Their names were Lydia, James, and Obadiah.
George, born Dec. 25, 1744, is the only son who appears upon later records, and probably these brothers and the sister died young, as they are not mentioned in their grandfather Burlingame's will. Elder Thos. Burlingame mentions in his will his grandson Obadiah, son to Benjamin Colvin, and his grandsons George Colvin, Nehemiah Burlingame, &c.
The date of Caleb Colvin's death has not yet been found.
It goes on to say he was alive in 1773 because he sold his share of a grist mill in Warwick in Natick to Nehemiah Burlingame.
It also says that he was of Coventry in Co. Kent, and a yeoman.
Didn't mean to write a book but thought you might find some of this information helpful.
