      Notes 
      • (from "History of the 1820 Brick House of Clifford St. Southborough" by Marjorie E. Hock; thanks to Kim Clements)

        "In 1818, on the 14th day of December, Colonel Jonas Cloyes paid $1000.00 to Asa and Mary Littlefield for 45 acres of land bounded by land of Elisha Bemis, a Town way leading to Southborough, land of Josiah Temple, and land of J. Goodnow. This deed, with its many f's and s's was signed Afa Littlefield and X for the mark of Mary Littlefield, his wife. Asa was listed as a Yeoman. The deed was finally recorded February 11, 1835. Col. Cloyes also bought 25 acres from Jonathan Rugg. On this 70 acres the brick house was built in 1820 along with a barn and adjoining buildings. In 1822 Jonas married Susan Morse and into this home 9 boys were born - 8 of them growing to Manhood.

        "Colonel Cloyes was a Civil Engineer, a Conveyeneer, owned a granite quarry and made mill stones. Many landmarks in Framingham are made of his granite - one example is the Old Academy at Framingham Center, now owned by the Historical Society. He was a Lt. Col. in the Mass. Militia in 1816. He held various town offices in Framingham, as each generation of the Cloyes family had done since their arrival in 1693 from Salem."
