Lieutenat Samuel Howe 1642-1713

Husband of Martha Bent, who grave we could not find. His stone is very small and in the middle of the first section of the grave yard. Lt. (Col.) Samuel Howe, second son of John and Mary (Jones ) Howe, was a prominent man in both civil and military affairs. He was a carpenter and resided in the hamlet of Lenham, in Sudbury. He held many town offices, and was colonel of a regiment made up of companies from the towns in the vicinity. He was admitted a freeman in Sudbury in 1671, and always resided in his native town. In association with Samuel Gookin, of Cambridge, he purchased a large tract of land from the indians, in what is now Framington, the deed dated May 19, 1682. In 1673 he built a new bridge in the northeast corner of Framingham. He married 1st in Sudbury, June 5, 1663, Martha Bent.
