From: The History of the Descendants of Elder John Strong, of Northampton, Mass, by Benjamin Woodbridge Dwight, 1871 (on Google Books):

Jedediah Strong (son of Elder John Strong of Northampton and Abigail Ford) b. May 7, 1637, (and bapt. April 14, 1639), m. Nov. 18, 1662, Freedom Woodward, bapt. at Dorchester, Mass., in 1642 (dau. of Henry Woodward, afterwards of Northampton, and " one of the pillars of the church," there, and Elizabeth hU wife). He was a farmer at Northampton until 1709, when at the age of 70 years and upwards he removed with his family to Coventry, Ct., where 24 years afterwards he d. May 22, 1733, aged 96 ; during the years 1677-8 & 9, he was paid 18 shillings a year for blowing the trumpet on Sunday to summon the people to church. His wife Freedom d. May 17, 1681, and he m. Deo. 19, 1681, for 2d wife Abigail Stebbins b. Sept. 6, 1660 (dau. of John Steb- bins, of Northampton, and Abigail Bartlett — dau. of Robert and Anne Bartlett, of Hartford, and afterwards of Northampton). She d. July 15, 1689, and he m. Jan. 5, 1691-2, for 3d wife Mrs. Mary (Hart) Lee widow of John Lee, of Farmington, Ct., and dau. of Stephen Hart, of Farmington. He lived with his first wife 19 years, with his second 7, and with his third wife 9, and notwithstanding his three marriages spent 33 years as a widower, and 61 unmarried. His wife Mary d. Oct. 10,1710, from the injury which she received the day previous, by the fall of the horse on which she was riding (on a pillion behind her husband), when just started well upon their way to Coventry, together, to visit their children. The record reads thus at Northampton : " Oct. 9, 1710, Jedediah Strong, and wife set out early in the morning to visit their children, at Coventry ; but when they came against the Falls (at S. Hadley) among the broad smooth stones, the horse's feet slipped up and he fell flat on the off side and by the fall killed the woman : though she was not quite dead then, but had life in her until the next day—yet never spoke a word." He was constable in 1683. --------------------
