There was another house-well still to be seen-about half-way between Mr. Strong's house and Matfield river, on the old Cary farm. The late Dea. John Whitman is said to have gone to school in this house. Of course, the house must have been standing as late as 1740. It was, no doubt, the residence of Francis Cary, son of the old town clerk, who was brought up with Samuel Tomkins, and had his estate in East Bridgewater, and who married Hannah Brett as early as 1685, and who had five children; Ephraim, one of the oldest, married Hannah Waldo, 1709, and had five children, 1709-1716, owned and lived upon his father's homestead and house, and died 1765, aged 87.
