    [Note: TAG 29:201 thinks the birth might be closer to 1624, assuming Israel wouldn't have been made executor of his father's will in 1644 unless he was very close to attaining his majority.]

    "1647. This spring we of Roxbury w'th some of Dorches[t]er ventured to sea in a small vessell but the master wanted sufficient experience, & the vessel overmasted & was over-sett, & many weeks after came whole allmost, ashore to shew the error of men to goe to sea so rawly: many m'r cast away in her m'ris stoughtons eldest sonne, m'r Howards Eldest sonne w'th many others." Rev. John Eliot, paster of the Church in Roxbury.
