d. in six days. His inv. shows �1266, 9, 7. His wid. m. Dec. 1647,
Gov. Winthrop, brot. him s. Joshua, wh. d. within two yrs. and m. next,
10 Mar. 1651, John Coggan, bore him Joshua, Caleb, and Sarah; and
after his d. in 1658, wish. to be m. again, as relat. by Rev. John Davenport;
and, it is said, poison. hers. for ill success. The will of his mo.
aids our research for genealogy. Its date is 30 Apr. 1658, and names
the four ch. of William Tyng, wh. had m. her eldest d. Elizabeth; five of
Increase Nowell; five of Thomas Graves; wh. were all the liv. gr.ch.;
besides the ds. Sarah Williams, to wh. she gave ld. at Woburn; Parnell
Nowell; and Catharine Graves, as also, Martha, the wid. of Coggran, wh.
had bef. been wid. of her s. Thomas, and of Gov. Winthrop.

    CRABB, HENRY, Boston, m. 1 Jan. 1658, Hannah, d. of Thomas
Emmons, had Samuel, b. 23 Dec. 1659, nam. in the will of his gr.f. E. 20
Jan. 1661. JOHN, Dorchester 1630, came, I presume, in the Mary and John,
req. 19 Oct. to be made freem. but prob. went home soon, at least never took
the o.; tho. Dr. Harris, wh. finds him in town rec. 1632, says he rem. to
Conn. As this could not be bef. 1635, it is liable to doubt. RICHARD,
Wethersfield, was rep. 1639, 40, and 1; sold est. 1643, and rem. prob.
to Stamford, and in 1655 was of Greenwich. See Hinman, 127.

    CRABTREE, JOHN, Boston 1639, a joiner, by w. Alice had John, b. 25
Oct. 1639; and Deliverance, 3 Sept. 1641, d. within two yrs. He d.
late in 1656, and his wid. m. 11 Feb. 1657, Joshua Hewes. JOHN,
Swanzey 1683, perhaps s. of the preced. m. Mary, 1 Nov. of that yr.
had Mary, b. 20 May of that yr. wh. d. in six days, if the Col. Rec. be
proof; but she prob. was sec. or third w. for the same Col. Rec. shows he
had Benjamin, b. 12 Oct. 1673.

    CRACKBONE, GILBERT, Dorchester, freem. 7 Dec. 1636, rem. soon to
Cambridge, had, perhaps, the four, whose d. is on rec. Mary, 30 May;
Judith, 1 July, both of 1655; Hannah, 24 Sept. 168; and Benjamin,
27 Apr. 1661; yet we kn. not, wh. was mo. of either. But as he m. 17
June 1656, Elizabeth Cooledge, it is clear the first two were by former w.;
and of the last nam. we may doubt for two reasons, that in his reg.
matchless Mitchell says: "his s. Benjamin was a. 5 or 6 yrs. old, when
his f. join. here," tho. he leaves it uncert. how old he was when that was
it. still we might infer, that he was contin. in life. Next, we kn. that
one Benjamin C. was k. by the Ind. 4 Sept. 1675 at Northfield, under
capt. Beers, and prob. was this man's s. He d. 9 Jan. 1672. His will,
of 28 Dec. with codic. of 2 Jan. preced. names s. Benjamin, and his ch.
Joseph and Sarah. His wid. was Elizabeth

    CRACKSTONE or CRAXTON, JOHN, Plymouth, came in the Mayflower
1620
, with s. of the same name, d. bef. end of Mar. foll. JOHN, Plymouth,
s. of the preced. had his sh. in div. of ld. as a comer in the
