Genealogies of Connecticut Familes, "Garrett Church of Watertown, Mass." by Robert M. and Helen C. Search

Bond shows the birth of Samuel Church and his marriage 7 Feb 1671/2 to Rebecca Shattuck as well as the birth of their daughter, Rebecca, 31 Dec. 1672. Lemuel Shattuck repeats these records and goes on the say that no further information concerning this family has been found and suggests that Rebecca and her heirs had diedd by 29 March 1687 when neither Rebecca nor the heirs of her brother, John, who was known to have died, signed the release to ther stepfather, Richard Norcross, concerning the estate of their father William Shattuck. . .

In view of the preponderance of Watertown men in this venture [buying a tract of land] and the fact no other man of this name is know to have been in New England at this time it seems that the Samuel Church of Groton was undoubtedly Samuel Church (Garrett).
