    [Note: this record is clearly in error when compared to Billerica and Woburn. This error has caused some sources to misidentify Ebenezer's wife (see note.]

  4.   Note: Source:Baldwin, Thomas W. Bacon Genealogy : Michael Bacon of Dedham, 1640 and His Descendants, p. 36, seems to been confused by the Bedford record of this marriage, and thought the Elizabeth Bacon named was the widow Tarrant Putnam, even though if so, her name should have been Elizabeth Putnam in the marriage record! So as a result, this source doesn't a viable identification of her. Speculatively, it appears possible that she is the Elizabeth Ditson who, on p. 43, is said to have married Thomas Bacon in 1749 and was appointed administratrix of his estate 9 Oct 1782. Ebenezer's wife Elizabeth d. 1790, a. 56 y. and 6 months, which matches Elizabeth Ditson's birth in 1733.
