Owen, m. 1685 Abigail, d. I suppose of Samuel Bissell of Windsor, had
Abigail, b. 1686; Mary, 1689; Sarah, 1692, prob. d. young; Sarah,
again, 1695; Margaret, 1697; and Elizabeth 1700; perhaps ano. ch. bef.
Samuel, Y. C. 1728, but the date of his b. I find not. He is absurdly
said to have begun the settlem. on E. side of the gr. riv. 1677, when
there were dwellers there, 20 yrs. bef. and so much had it gr. that in
1680, petitn. was offered for its incorpo. as separ. town. He d. 6 July

    TUFTS, JAMES, k. by the Ind. at Bloody brook, 18 Sept. 1675, may

11 Apr. 1688; John, 28 May 1690; Nathaniel, 23 Feb. 1693; Peter,
1696; Benjamin 1699; Thomas; and Stephen; and d. 1728. JOHN,

Nov. foll. Sarah Bradstreet, perhaps d. of John of Topsfield, youngest s.
of Gov. Simon, had Mary, b. 4 Sept. 1715; Joshua, 4 Oct. 1716, H. C.

again, 3 Mar. 1660; John, a. 1665; Mercy; Sarah; Elizabeth 22 Nov.
1672; and perhaps others, besides Peter, wh. I judge was the eldest.
He was tythingman of C. 1679, rep. for Medford 1689, and d. 13 May
1700; aged 83, and his wid. d. Jan. 1703. He made a will 1693, with
