  • Notes 
    • Jacobus (citation details below) gives this marriage a date of "9 Nov. 170(3?)". The published vital records of Sudbury (citation details below) say "SHEARMAN, John and Abigaill Ston, Nov. 9, 170[torn] [? 1703]".

      We note, however, that Jacobus, Bartlett (citation details below), and the vital records of Brimfield (citation details below) all agree that John and Abigail's eldest child Bezaleel was born 31 Mar 1703, suggesting that this marriage may actually have taken place on 9 Nov 1702, or even 9 Nov 1701 — although John Sherman would have been eleven days short of 18 years old on that latter date.
