  • Notes 
    • He continued the business of tanning upon the old place, and added to the farm, left to him by his father, much of the adjacent territory. He married Susanna, daughter of William Brigham, and granddaughter of Solomon Prentice, the first minister of Grafton. He was somewhat prominent in town affairs, and possessed the confidence and esteem of his townsmen, as the records of the town will show. He was a resolute, self-reliant and capable man, and when, late in life, some reverses of fortune overtook him, although his health was seriously impaired, he took up the task of restoring his losses and preserving his estate with a vigor and energy rarely exhibited by the young and healthful. He was a man of excellent understanding, with a keen sense of the ludicrous, and a prevailing humor which displayed itself in the queer and apt terms and epithets he was wont to make use of to express the odd and whimsical resemblances he detected in men and things. He had eleven children, nine of whom survived him.
