Daniel Cone's descendants can be grateful that this Scottish prisoner of the English Civil War became a servant in the most prominent family of early New England, the Winthrops. As a result, Daniel is mentioned in a number of documents, through which his life can be traced in colonial Massachusetts and Connecticut, from the mid-seventeenth century until the early eighteenth. This story of Daniel as soldier, prisoner, trusted servant, then freeman, husband, and pioneer, brings alive the challenges and passions of making a new life in a new world. Both for those named Cone and for anyone interested in the founding of Puritan New England, A Man Named Daniel will be vivid and rewarding reading.
