Edward had married Mary Snow in 1719 and was living in Westford, thus escaping the smallpox disease that destroyed the family. Mary Snow Bates was the first public school mistress in Westford. Their oldest child, Oliver, had married Ruth Wright but died without issue of wounds received at the battle for Concord Bridge. Other children were Joseph, Betty, Sarah, Hannah and John.
