Huntington, Jabez (b. 7 AUG 1719, d. 5 OCT 1786)
Note: Jabez Huntington attended Yale and graduated in 1741. He entered the West Indies trade and, according to the Huntington Genealogy, "by an honorable and efficient business career, laid the foundation of one of the amplest fortunes of that age." In 1750 he was elected to the General Assembly and served in that body until 1764, serving as clerk from 1757 to 1760 and as speaker from 1760 to 1764. In 1764 he was elected to the Governor's Council. In 1765 Huntington and six other members (of a total of twelve) walked out of the council rather than take an oath to enforce the Stamp Act.

While the advent of the Revolution could only be financially disastrous to one engaged in the shipping industry, Huntington was active from the beginning in the patriot cause. In 1776 he and David Wooster were appointed major generals in joint command of the entire state militia. When Wooster fell at the Battle of Danbury the following year, Huntington assumed sole command of the militia.

During the revolution he was a member of the Council of Safety, which, together with Governor John Trumbull, provided the political leadership of the state at this time. Three of its ten members were Huntingtons. Next to Governor Trumbull, Jabez Huntington was its most influential member and attended over 1200 meetings in the years 1776-1779.

His health was ruined by overwork, however, and he suffered a disabling stroke in February 1779 although he lived another seven years.

In his sermon at Huntington's funeral in 1787, the minister said, "As the train of melancholy distress which brought him to his end probably originated from his painful and unremitted exertions for his country, in the time of danger; his country, surely, will not withhold the tear of grateful sorrow, but pay deserved respect to his memory, and teach succeeding generations to revere his dust; and as they pass his urn, to say, 'there lies the man who devoted his all to the public good; who sacrificed his ease, his health, and eventually his life, to serve and save his country."

General Huntington and his first wife were second cousins. She apparently died of complications of childbirth a week after the birth of their second son.

There are articles on General Huntington in the Dictionary of American Biography and in the American National Biography. His portrait, painted by John Trumbull, the son of the governor, hangs in the Connecticut State Library in Hartford.

Moore, Thomas (b. 1722, d. 19 JUN 1784)
Note: Thomas Moore was sent to England for his education and attended Westminster School there. Returning to New York he opened a ship chandlery, but according to his son John, he was an inept businessman and his career was a series of failures and bankruptcies.

He was a vestryman of Trinity Church from 1750 to 1762 and again from 1779 to 1784, although the building itself had been destroyed in the fire of Sep 1776 that burned about one-third of the city.

Like most of the Moore family he was a strict Tory, but when he moved to the house of his son-in-law General Huntington a month before his death, the latter was, in the words of his son John Moore, "graciousness itself."
