      Lieutenant Joseph Kellogg, son of Martin Kellogg, was baptized at Great Leigh, County Essex, England, April 1, 1626, died in 1707. He was the immigrant ancestor, and settled in Farmington, Connecticut, where he was living in 1651. He and his wife joined the church October 9, 1653. He sold his house lot in 1655 and removed about 1657 to Boston. On October 19, 1659, he bought of Peter Oliver his dwelling house on the street to Roxbury. He sold his property June 13, 1661, to John Witherden. This lot of land is now occupied by the Advertiser Building on Washington Street. He paid ce 700 for it at one time. He removed to Hadley, and the town made an agreement with him in 1661 to keep the ferry between Hadley and Northampton. He built his house on a small home lot, which had been reserved by the town for a ferry lot. He was given leave also to entertain travelers. In 1677, the town voted to pay him ce 40 for the loss of his team, which had been impressed for the country's service, and for ferriage for soldiers. He and his son John and grandson John kept this ferry until 1758, almost a century. Stephen Codman, who married his daughter, kept it still later. The last name of the ferry was Goodman's Ferry.

      Joseph Kellogg was selectman of Hadley many years. In 1686, he was on a committee to lay out lands, and for the purchase of Swampfield from the Indians. He and his sons had grants of land in Hadley. He was sergeant of the military company in 1663, and May 9, 1678, was appointed ensign of the foot company. In October 7 of the same year he was made lieutenant, serving until 1692. He was in command as sergeant of the Hadley troops in the famous Turner's Falls fight, May 18, 1675. His will is dated June 7, 1707, and proved February 4, 1708, giving the year of his death. He married (first) probably in England, Joanna (???), who died in Hadley, September 14, 1666; (second) Abigail Terry, born in Windsor, Connecticut, September 21, 1646, daughter of Stephen Terry, the immigrant. Her will was dated May 29, 1717, and proved October 31, 1726. His wife Abigail was before the court in 1673 for wearing silk, contrary to the law, but was acquitted. It was shown at the trial that her husband's estate was below the ce 200 necessary to allow her to wear "gold or silver lace, gold or silver buttons," etc.
