  4.   Source:History of Grafton, Worcester County, Massachusetts, from its early settlement by the Indians in 1647 to the present time, 1879 : including the genealogies of seventy-nine, p. 571, says Thomas m. (1) Anne and m. (2) 1748 Silence Hunt, and d. 1750. There is a marriage record for Thomas Stow and Silence Hunt in VR Grafton. There are also death records for a Thomas Stow in 1746 and another in 1750. Given that Ann Stow m. 1751 to Moses Haven, it would appear that Thomas Stow could not have married a second time. Rather, as suggested by Source:John Wetherbee of Marlboro and Stow, Massachusetts, the Thomas that married Silence Hunt was the son of this Thomas, b. 1728, and d. 1750. Silence then m (2) 1751 to Samuel Chase Jr. of Sutton. Thus, one concludes that Thomas, the father, d. 1746, and his wife Anne m. 1751 Moses Haven.
