      Joseph Bemis 2d (1. Joseph.) This son of the immigrant, the first to arrive at manhood, m. Anna---and removed to Westminster, Mass; then called Narragansett No. 2. In 1740, his son, probably Philip, "Disposed of all right and title to the property of my honored father and mother, Joseph and Anna Bemis, to my brother Joseph and sister Mary of Cambridge." (p. 542. Hist. of Westminster Mass. by William S. Haywood.) As we know that Joseph's wife was Anna, and that he went to Westminster to live, it proves that he was the son of Joseph Bemis the immigrant. The records of the towns of Westminster and Watertown do not furnish any data of an intervening generation, and the author therefor assumes there was none. Joseph Bemis, or Bemish so spelt, was a soldier in King Phillips War as evidenced from the following entries in Bodge "Soldiers in King Phillips War" p. 176. Joseph Bemish credited under Capt. James Oliver, for services Mar. 24, 1675-6. £2. 149. p. 376. The same soldier received £2. sro. p. 147. Under a list of the Grantees of Narragansett No. 2. now Westminster, Mass, appears Joseph Beames, deceased, claimed by his son Joseph Beames. Grant made about Oct. 17, 1733. In 1700, the son of the Narragansett settler, Joseph 3d was aided by a contribution "having had his substance consumed by fire."
