Biographical Sketch (1883):2599 "Stratton, Ichabod, a cooper, res. in Brk. 12 Feb. 1731-2. He subsequently removed to Hk. with his wife Elizabeth, who became a member of the church 13 Nov. 1737. The date of his admission does not appear; but he was manifestly a member, because he was called to account, 14 Nov. 1753, for absenting himself 'from the sacrament of the Lord's Supper,' but afterwards made his peace with the church. He d. 31 Oct 1762; his wife Elizabeth d. 8 Nov. 1761. No record is found of their children, who were probably born in Brk.; but they are supposed to have been parents of Francis, Ichabod, and Elizabeth, who had a son Judah, b. 18 July 1749, bap. 29 Ap. 1750, and who m. Thomas Elwell, pub. 25 Ap. 1762."

Biographical Sketch (1908):2610 "Ichabod Stratton was the only son of 'Mr. Richard Stratton of Chelmsford. he was born December 1, 1687. His mother died when he was a week old, which may account for his name, Ichabod, i.e. 'child of sorrow.' He learned the cooper's trade while a boy. He lived in Chelmsford, Littleton, Brookfield and Hardwich. In 1709 he married Elizabeth Hildreth of Charlestown. In 1731 he was chosen constable of Hardwich, and in 1739 Surveyor of Highways. He died in 1762."
