He died age about 80 in 1707 or 1708, asappears from the fact that his will dated 1707 was proved Feb 4, 1708. He married first Joanna _____, who died Sep 14, 1666.

From "Genealogical Notes", manuscript by Dewey at Westfield MA Library:

From "Notes on Some of the Descendants of Joseph Kellog of Hadley," byJustin Perkins Kellogg, 1836-..., London, Thomas Moring at the De La MorePress 1898, "for private circulation only":

He was in Farmington, CT prior to 1653. He joined Farmington Church 9 Oct 1653, from thence he removed to Boston, about 1659 where he bought a homestead, thence in 1661 to Hadley where he remained until his death.His will was dated... 1707... He came perhaps from Essex County, England, where the name Kellogg is found in the old Parish records of Braintreeand the adjoining Parishes of Bocking, Bradwell and Cressing. He was a cousin (perhaps a nephew) of Nathaniel Kellogg of Hartford, (prior to1639, who died at Farmington in 1657). Had lease for ferry from Hadley to Northampton. This lease was renewed from time to time, and seems to have been of some value to the Kellogg family, for it remained in their hands until 1758, and then passed to Stephen Goodman who married Joanna Kellogg, dau. of James and great granddaughter of Joseph Kellogg. His house in Hadley was the last on the west side of the old street at the south end, the corner south of the south road leading into the great meadow. The landing for the Northampton Ferry was not far from his house.

In those days all able bodied men, over the age of 16 were required to serve as soldiers. He was appointed a sergeant, Sep 1663; ensign in 1678, LT in 1679; and retained his command until 1692. In King Philip's War he was in the bloody fight with the Indians at Turners Falls, 19 May1676, in charge of the Hadley contingent of 18 men, 4 of whom were killed. The whole English force did not exceed 160 men, of whom 38 were killed, including the Commander. He was one of the Trustees of the Hopkins Grammar School at Hadley; and was one of the select men of Hadley in 1665 -74-77-79-81-85-92.

His will dated Jun 27, 1707 was very detailed, including the following for Stephen. "I give and bequeath to my loving sons Stephen Kellogg and Nathaniel Kellog, considering that I had a considerable estate with their mother out of Father Terry's Estate therefore I give to them all that allotment that was my Father Terry's lying in Hockanum in Hadley bounded by the land of John Smith northeast and the land of Thomas Hovey southwest abutting on the River both North and South to be equally divided to them after my wife's decease, not to have ye use or possession of said land till then and then to be to them and their heirs forever. This together with forty shillings a piece I have already given them I account a full portion for them."
