The following marriage is entered in the church records under the date of December 28, 1742: "Priamus (Capt. Boydens Negro Man Servant) to Margr't, molatto, formerly servant to S. S., both of Groton," It is also recorded that Margaret, the servant of Samuel Scripture, Jr., was baptized on January 30, 1733-34, and that she (Margaret) owned the church covenant at the same time. The initials, "S.S." stands for Samuel Scripture. This negro couple was after blessed with a family of children and they lived on the west side of the Nashua River, a short distance north of the county road to Townsend. His surname was Lew or Lue, and his given name became contracted into Primus; and to this day the rise of ground near the place where Pepperell road leaves the main road, is known as Primus Hill, so called after him. Mr. Butler thinks that perhaps Margaret's name was Lew. See Butler's History p.454.

Their oldest child, Zelah, a corruption of Barzillai, born at Groton on Nov. 5, 1743, was a famous musician who lived at Dracut and the father of numerous children who were also musicians. He was a fifer in Capt. John Ford's company of the 27th MA Regiment in service at the siege of Boston and was present at the Battle of Bunker Hill.
