         John Freelove died testate on 10 Feb. 1755 in Bridgewater.[5] His will was dated 1 Feb. 1755, witnessed by Daniel Snell, Timothy Perkins, and Benjamin Willis Junr, and probated on 3 Mar. 1755. He mentioned his wife Abigail Freelove, whom he named as sole executrix, daughter Sarah Freelove, who was to receive, in addition to money, “all the Goods which belong’d to my First Wife,” daughter Abigail Freelove, son John Freelove, and daughter Thankfull Freelove.[6] (See Appendix f for a full transcription of his will.) Abi­gail (Washburn) Freelove died on 20 Apr. 1772 in East Bridgewater, aged 59 [sic] years, of “consumption.”[7]

         John Freelove had one daughter by Sarah Gansey, and probably 3 more children by Abigail Washburn:

+      1011   iii   John Freelove (Jr.), born on 4 Feb. 1741/2 in Freetown.[12] A guardian was appointed for him in 1756,[13] and he married 1.)

On 16 Mar. 1758 Constable Samuel Dunbar of Plimton warned William Washburn, his wife, and their children Philip, Rebecca, Thankfull, Eunice, and William, “all at the house of Israel Allger, there last Place of residence was at Easton,” to depart town.[27]

         Ezekiel Washburn died intestate in 1785 in Bridgewater. His widow, Naomi Washburn, requested that Capt.
