  1.   Early Bridgewater Families .

    Israel is not found in the records after he was named a Trooper in 1671. It is often supposed that he was killed in King Philip's War, but this is belied by the claim that no one from Bridgewater died in that war. 13 The record on Thomas is similarly scant, and he is often confused with Thomas Packer, a British surgeon who lived in New Hampshire.

  2. "Samuel Packard's Will", in Massachusetts Society of Mayflower Descendants. Mayflower Descendant, 15:253.

    The will of Israel's father, Samuel Packard, dated 29 Oct 1684, does not mention Israel or any heirs, suggesting he had died without issue by that date (abstract posted on Family:Samuel Packard and Elizabeth Unknown (1)).
