Published Duxbury vital records, taken from Pembroke Friends Monthly Meeting 1676-1776, Latter Day Saints [LDS] MIcrofilm No. LH 2173-74 Rhode Island Historical Society Library, Providence [hereinafter Pembroke Friends], 325:72. As indicated by the date of Henry's will, his death actually took place in 1670/71. The date 17 January 1671, published in two standard sources on this subject, is impossible because Henry's inventory was taken 14 January 1670/71; see Howland, Howland History: 69 and Little Compton Families...From Records Compiled by Benjamin Franklin Wilbour (Providence, Little Compton Historical Society, 1967), 353.
