Joseph Hewitt, son of Captain Joseph Hewitt and Mary Chesebrough, was born at Stonington, Connecticut, 2 May 1731.1 He died after 1790.1

Joseph married Sarah Babcock, daughter of Captain Nathaniel Babcock and Sarah Billings, at Voluntown, Connecticut, 27 May 1756.1,2

In 1790, his household was probably the one enumerated at New Haven, New Haven Co., Connecticut, with 3 free white males over 16, 2 under 16, and 4 free white females.3

Joseph Hewitt served in Major Robert Denison's company of Connecticut Militia, 10 April to 10 Dec 1755. He served again, 23 March to 11 December 1764 in Captain John Tyler's company, of Lt. Col. Israel Putnam's regiment of Connecticut troops.

Joseph and Sarah lived in the Stonington area until sometime before 1782 when they removed to Stephentown, Albany Co., New York (now Renesselaer Co.) After the death of his wife in 1792, he reportedly moved to Providence, Saratoga Co., but no probate or cemetery records have been found for him.1
