In Reply to: EBENEZER PACKARD b 1724 by Linda Clark of 1236

> Ebenezer Packard ,born 1724 Feb 23rd
> Sarah Packard, born 1725 March 17th

This was Ebenezer Packard, b. 23-Feb-1724 Bridgewater, MA [MD 15:169; Bridgewater VR 1:240]; d. 20-Jan-1803 Bridgewater, MA [Brockton VR 348] and buried in Thompson Cemetery, Brockton. He was the son of David and Hannah (Ames) Packard.

His wife Sarah Perkins was b. 25- or 27-Jun-1725 [Conant Family 157 says 27-Jun; NEHGR 50:39 says 25-Jun; note that the former does not specify birthplace, the latter specifies Ipswich, MA, but no record is found in Ipswich VR]; bp. 08-Jan-1726/27 Wenham, MA [Wenham VR 69]; d. 12-Mar-1810 Bridgewater, MA [Brockton VR 352; Bridgewater VR 2:534] and buried in Thompson Cemetery, Brockton. She was the daughter of Mark and Dorothy (Whipple) Perkins.

The births of all of their children except Joseph are recorded at Bridgewater, and the baptisms of all except Alice recorded at the Fourth Church there (later the First Church of Brockton). A few of the birth dates published in Bridgewater VR differ slightly from those in the article.

I did not have some of the death dates given in the article, and those are most welcome.

A number of Ebenezer and Sarah's grandchildren removed to Maine, and others removed to New Hampshire, according to Mitchell's "History of the Early Settlement of Bridgewater ..."
