(tho. strong, doubts of error in the name are felt) of Rehoboth ; and Rebecca
m. 5 Apr. 1659, John Mackintosh. MICHAEL, Dedham, eldest s.
of the preced. b. in Eng. m. 2 or 12 Apr. 1644, Mary, d. of John Fairbanks,
says the Metcalf geneal. bef. ment. but perhaps by mistake, had
Michael, b. 21 Jan. 1645; Mary, 15 Aug. 1646; Sarah, 7 Dec. 1648;
Jonathan, 21 Sep 1650; and Eleazer, 20 Mar. 1653, bef. ment. was
freem. 1645, and d. (ten yrs. bef. his f.) 24 Dec. 1654. Mary m. 10
Dec. 1668, John Ware; and Sarah m. 4 June 1677, Robert Ware.
MICHAEL, Dedham, s. of the preced. 17 Sept. 1672, Elizabeth not, I
think, as Goodwin has it, d. but wid. of the sec. John Kingsbury, d. of
Thomas Fuller, both of the same, had Michael, b. 9 May 1674, Mary,
3 Oct. 1676; Thomas, 3 Jan. 1679; Sarah, 26 Apr. 1682; Eleazer, 12
Feb. 1685; Hannah, 17 Apr. 1687; Daniel, 25 July 1691; and Elizabeth;
was freem. 1690, and d. 2 Sept. 1693. His wid. d. 24 Oct. 1732.
STEPHEN, New Haven 1639, a brickmaker, aft. 1647 prob. rem. was in
good repute. THOMAS, Dedham, youngest s. of the first Michael, b.
in Eng. m. 12 Sept. 1656, Sarah Paige, had Sarah, b. 3 Mar. 1658;
Mary, bapt. 25 Nov. 1660; Samuel, b. 17 0ct. 1661, d. soon; Thomas;
22 Sept. 1663, d. soon; Samuel, again, 17 Sept. 1668; Thomas, again,
7 or 21 May 1671; John, 20 Sept. 1675; and Judith, 25 Nov. 1677,

was freem. 1653, deac. and rep. 1691, d. 16 Nov. 1702. Sarah m. 23
Nov. 1676, Samuel Whiting, and d. 1702. THOMAS, Ipswich 1648, s.
of Joseph the first, b. in Eng. I suppose, had Mary, b. 23 June 1658;
Joseph, 27 Jan. 1661; Thomas, 4 Dec. 1667; beside prob. Elizabeth nam.
in the will of gr.f. He was freem. 1674. Of the mo. of these ch. we
kn. nothing; but he may have d. and one Thomas of Ipswich, a
widower, m. 1658, wid. Lydia Davis. Still more uncertainty is felt
unless we give him ano. w. for the wid. of Thomas M. nam. Abigail, d.
at I. 5 May 1727, aged 88 yrs. An earlier Thomas of Ipswich is found
by Mr. Felt to be inhab. there 1638. THOMAS, Dedham, s. of the first
Thomas, m. 24 Nov. 1696, Sarah, d. of William Avery, the sec. of the
name, had Sarah, b. 26 Apr. 1698, d. in few wks.; Samuel, 9 Apr.

and he d. 12 Dec. 1704; and his wid. m. 6 Apr. 1709, Joseph Wight,
and d. 1748. Two of this name had, in 1829, been gr. at Harv. and
seven at the other N. E. coll. It is oft. in old rec. writ. as no doubt it
was sound. Medcalf.
