  • Notes 
    • Inherited family home at Watertown, to which he made 'new' additions to the older portion that his son Samuel occupied. Photos have been taken of the home, the neighboring Abraham Brown School, and the gravesites of Abraham, Lydia, and a number of their descendants. Held numerous town positions, including that of Town Treasurer, Assessor, Selectman, Town Clerk, and Captain of Militia. He was licensed as an innkeeper in 1709, and continued as such for 4 years. Appointed guardian in 1708 of the 17 year old Ephraim WILLIAMS, later Col. and father of the founder of Williams College.««s59»» [1]
