Moses Wing was born April 25,1760. He served in the Revolutionary War and was present at the retreat from New York. He was know as a Goldsmith, but made brass clocks, silver spoons, etc. By the style of the dial and the construction of the movement and case, one can assume that he trained with Daniel Burnap who was a Thomas Harland apprentice. Wing died in 1809 and is buried in Windsor where his tombstone still stands.
