Watertown, s. of the sec. John, m. 16 Feb. 1684, Mary, d. of Joseph
Bemis, had Mary, b. 30 Sept. 1689; but Bond tells no more, tho. by his

STEPHEN, one of the first sett. of Huntington, L. I. THOMAS, Plymouth,
had w. Winifred, wh. d. 23 July 1660, but from Col. Rec. I
learn no more. THOMAS, Watertown, fourth s. of John the first of the
same, brot. from Eng. at six yrs. of age, m. 11 Jan. 1655, Mary, whose
surname may never be satisfactorily shown, any more than that of the
w. of Theophilus Phillips, wh. in my opin. was her sis. but in opin. of a
judic. reader of old rec. seems Kedell, in one place, or Keedell in ano.

d. was 20 Sept. 1719, but Bond calls him his freem. of 1690, wh. title
may be well, I think, fall to THOMAS, Watertown, s. of the preced. m.
29 Jan. 1679, but Bond says, 18 Oct. 1681, Elizabeth d. of George Lawrence
of the same, rem. to Stow and had Thomas, b. 17 Sept. 1681;
