The Huntington family in America says:

1. 3. 3.4. 1. 2.
Andrew Huntington, born June 21-2, 1745, in Norwich. Conn.; married, first, November 26, 1766, Lucy, daughter of Dr. Joseph and Lydia (Lathrop) Coit, of New London, who was born July 2, 1746, and died May 9, 1776. Of her, his brother Jedidiah, in a letter dated Camp at New York, May 21, 1776, thus speaks : " The death of our sister Lucy, has made one more breach in our late happy family, though it ought to check our grief, that she left such good evidences of her interest in a better world." He married for his second wife, May 1, 1777, Hannah Phelps, of Stonington, who was born December 16, 1760. He and his first wife united with the first Congregational church of Norwich in 1775, and eminently honored their Christian profession. His second wife, who lived until July 30, 1838, was a noble woman in all personal and social qualities. Mrs. Sigourney says of her, " she possessed an elegance of form and address, which would have been conspicuous at any foreign court. She was especially fascinating to the children who visited her, by her liberal presentations of cake and other pleasant eatables, or, what was to some equally alluring, a readiness to lend fine books with pictures."
Of Mr. Huntington the same authority says: "he was a man of plain manners and incorruptible integrity. His few words were always those of good sense and truth, and the weight of his influence given to the best interests of society." He was engaged in commercial pursuits, and in 1795 embarked in the manufacture of paper at the Falls in Norwich. He was Clerk of Probate Court from 1786 to 1789, and Judge of Probate from 1790 to 1816. During the War of the Revolution he was a commissary of brigade, and was untiring in his exertions to secure prompt supplies for the army. Upon his services, Gov. Trumbull put great reliance, and it is on record that such reliance was not misplaced. He died April 7, 1824.
