Here’s the historical site, normally open to the public, where my ggggggrandfather, Captain John Viets, was appointed keeper of the prison in 1773, where the Tory prisoners were kept.  I believe it was called Simsbury then, but now E. Granby, Connecticut.

This is copied from the following link:
Viets Tavern is the unrestored mid-18th century home of first prison warden, Capt. John Viets.
