Will of Jean Chogam [Janey Chogam]

Rhode Island Roots Special Bonus Issue 2022

Gleaning from Rhode Island Town Records:

Charlestown Town Council Records 1738-1775

Pg: 82 – The will of Jean Chogam [called Janey Chogam in the will] dated 22 March 1762, was approved by the council on the testimony of the witnesses, Peleg Cross, Jonathan Lock, and John Welch. James Hazzard was given a letter of administration of the estate.

Note from Coni: In my research, I believe that James Hazzard is who comes to be known as Chief James Chogam/Chagum/Chaugham (born between 1702-1715 & died 1789/1790) of the Barkhamsted Lighthouse Village. He is a Grandson to this Jean/Janey1 (Ninegret) Chogam – he is the son of Janey2 who is the daughter of Great James & Jean/Janey1.

Lines that I believe James Chagum descends from
