About Abigail Kirby

Zoeth Howland, son of Henry, was born in Duxbury, and settled in Dartmouth as early as 1662. He took the oath of fidelity in Duxbury in 1657, and probably about this time with his father became a convert to Quakerism, and meetings were held at his house, for which he was fined. He was killed by the Indians at Pocasset 2Ist of 1st month, 1676. Tiverton and Little Compton were known as Pocasset, and the present stone bridge was Howland's ferry, which was later kept by Daniel, son of Zoeth. Abigail Howland, widow of Zoeth, married (second) in 1678 Richard Kirby. All of the sons of Zoeth except Samuel were active members of the Apponegansett Meeting. His children were: Nathaniel, Benjamin, Daniel, Lydia, Mary, Sarah, Henry, Abigail, Nicholas and Samuel
