Capt. Amos Clift was born May 27, 1769 in Preston, Connecticut and died November 15, 1818 in Mystic, Connecticut. He was son of Amos Clift (1737-1806) of Marshfield, Massachusetts and Mary Coit (1739-1797) of Preston, Connecticut. He was married to Esther Williams (b. 1772) on September 28, 1791, and had three children, Lydia, Denison and Lemuel. Esther died in 1798 and Amos married Thankful Denison (b. 1780) on August 4, 1798, and had eight children, Margery, Amos, Esther, John C., Waterman, Horatio, Frederick, and Nancy.
