  4.   Note: Source:Pierce, Frederick Clifton. Foster Genealogy : Being the Record of the Posterity of Reginald Foster, an Early Inhabitant of Ipswich, in New England,, p. 1035, which should be the definitive Foster genealogy if it didn't make so many mistakes, misreports the marriage date of Samuel Kemp and Sarah Foster, d/o Andrew Foster, as 15 Oct 1667, despite Billerica records showing 1662 (an error which seems to have been copied by others). As a result, Pierce leaves all the children born before 1667 (including Abigail) out of the family.
