    "TAYLOR, Abraham (1656-1729) & Mary WHITAKER (1662-1756); 16 Dec 1681; Concord". Torrey's thoroughly researched compendium confirms their specific marriage date, that Concord was their only known residence, and their birth and death years.

    p. 9, 147, 1884.

    On page 9, an agreement dated 11 Feb 1699 [1700] in the town records of Billerica shows that the boundary between the towns of Concord and Billerica was re-established (by boundary stones/markers), and Abraham Taylor, as one of several men with lands adjacent to the boundary line, assented.
