emigrated from Wales in 1769, and settled in Rhode Island. Jonathan J. Hazard, jr., who was the progenitor of the

His son, George V. Hazard, married Marian, daughter of John, and a relative of Judge William Potter. They settled
on a farm on City Hill, about 1800, and were in the Friend's settlement. He eventually died at the age of sixty
five years, at Dresden. His son, Jonathan, married Elouisetta F., daughter of Russel Brown, a pioneer of Torrey.
He was a farmer and met his death while bathing in the canal. Their children were George R., Adaline A., and Harriet
M. George R. Hazard, born June 18, 1841, married Gertrude Teft, of Torrey, and is now the genial proprietor of
