Gen. Ct. of which Coffin's valua. Hist. 389, 90, gives copy. Uzackabee
Shacksbee is the name on town rec. as Mr. Judd assur. me, and he is

freem. 1671, rem. to Killingworth, there had Nathaniel, b. 16 Dec. 1677;

Alice, d. of Jared Spencer, wid. of Thomas Brooks), gives other ch. as
Thomas, a. 1674; Abel; Timothy; and Ann; but does not name Nathaniel.
However he says, he sail. for the W. I. 1692, and was lost

ALEXANDER, Kittery 1642, had some yrs. bef. been agent, prob. of
Sir Ferdinando Gorges, and so may be thot. to have come from Devonsh.

other ch.; all, it may be, b. in his native ld. He soon went home, and
d. there bef. 1650. BENJAMIN, New London, mariner, s. of Nicholas,

k. by the Ind. 29 Apr. 1706, as Penhallow tells, when his s. was tak. by

his youngest, liv. aft. at Charlestown, was a capt. and d. 15 Feb. 1663.
His will, of 21 Jan. 1662, pro. 7 Sept. 1663, gave to his w. "the ho. in
