The Huntington family in America says:

1.2.4.3.10. Elijah Huntington, born December 21, 1734, in Norwich, Conn.; married, December 19, 1764, Anna, daughter of Joseph and Mary (1.3.9.2.) Carew, and went same year into Bozrah, where he lived and died, a useful and honored man. He was a member of the Connecticut legislature in 1791. Though early called into the service of his country, having served in three campaigns of the old French War, he preferred the less exposed and less noticed, yet none the less useful, life of a farmer.
His first wife died April 9, 1770, and he married, the second time, March 21, 1771, Lydia, daughter of Thomas and Ann (Bingham) Baldwin, who was born, October 19, 1740.
After a distressing confinement of eleven years, with an obstinate rheumatic complaint, induced at first by his exposures in his military campaigns, he died in Bozrah, March 20, 1814.
