--------------------

Joseph, in his will of 24 APR 1706, mentions and provides for wife Esther; also for his four sons and four daughters, and naming the sons but not the daughters. He was a bricklayer by trade. Constable from 1675 to 1678, inclusive. Selectman, 1671, 1677, 1684, and 1692. Sexton of the parish in 1673, and served in this capacity until the new meeting-place was erected. They lived on the paternal homestead, South Street.

Birth: 25 MAR 1642/43

_SDATE: 25 MAR 1642 in Duxbury, Plymouth County, Massachusetts

Note: Boston records for the period 1644 and 1646 included earlier births from other towns claiming them to be Boston Records. I believe that Esther could have been born in Boston as the records indicate. Maybe her mother's parents lived in Boston and she went back home to have someone care for her first child, William. 1

Immigration: Came on Ship Elizabeth in 1635
