    "Thomas Tileston, grantee of land 1634, and often afterwards; freeman 1636; died June 24, 1694, aged 83. He appears to have been an enterprising and useful man. His wife was Elizabeth. His children were - Timothy, born 1636; Onisephorus, born 1651; Cornelius, who died 20 (5) 1659; Elizabeth, born 1639; Naomi; Ruth; Bathsheba, born 1649. Elizabeth died unmarried; Naomi probably died young; Ruth married, when she was quite young, Richard Denton. He lived but a short time; then she married Timothy Foster, who came from Scituate. Bathsheba married John Payson, of Roxbury. Timothy owned one half of the tide mill, in Mill street, in 1697. It has been in the family to this day. It was built by Edward Breck, who sold it to William Robinson, and Robinson to Tileston. Onisephorus succeeded to this father's estate."
