      From Find a Grave

      Josias was the son of John Furman of Watertown, MA, who is thought to have come from Nayland, co. Suffolk, England. Josias is reportedly the same baptized at Nayland on 22 Apr. 1621, the son of John Furman and Susan Warren. The family arrived in New England in "Winthrop's Fleet" in 1630.

      Josias settled in Hempstead, on Long Island, by 1657. By 1664, he relocated his family to Middleburgh/Newtown, in what would become Queen Co., NY.

      He married at least twice. His wife Alice/Angelche is documented in 1669 and later, and is thought to be the mother of his children. They included six sons, as follows:

      1. Josias Jr., b. abt. 1653--linked below
      2. Joseph, b. abt 1655
      3. John, b. 1650-56, d. 1726, m. Margaret Lynch
      4. David, m. Mary Morrell
      5. Samuel, m. Elizabeth Roberts
      6. Jonathan

      Josias married (second) to the widow Mary Weed of Stamford, CT, about 1692.

      He died sometime between 1703 and 1709, presumably in Newtown where he resided.

      Note: He was most likely buried in the Old Newtown Cemetery based on his residence. No documentation of burial or a gravestone has been found.
