  Captain John Carpenter was a resident of Jamaica, L.I. previous
to the year 1664; was one of the patentees of the town under the
"Dongan Patent" of 1680. John Carpenter and Nehemiah Smith were
a committee to settle the Rev. John Pruden over the church at
Jamaica, June, 19, 1681.
  Of course with such additions to the population more land had to be secured from the local Indians from time to time, and we find several records of purchases made in exchange for such articles as soldiers' coats, kettles, "bottles of licker," powder, lead, guns, blankets and the like. The value of the Donegan patent of 1686 was that it clearly defined the limits of the township and showed that several of the original patentees were still prominent in the town.
  The names given in this patent were, Nicolas Everit, Nathaniel Denton, Nehemiah Smith, Daniel Denton, John Oldfields, William Creed, Bryant Newton, Benjamin Coe, Jonas Wood, William Foster, John Everit, Edward Higbie, Daniel Whitehead, John Carpenter, John Furman, Samuel Smith, Richard Rhodes, Thomas Lamberson, Joseph Smith, George Woolsey, John Baylis, Thomas Smith, Wait Smith and Samuel Mills. is NOT responsible for the content of the GEDCOMs uploaded through the WorldConnect Program.
