  • Notes 
    • He was a cooper. "Called a centenarian at death, the newspapers said he perfectly remembered the revolution against Gov. Andros which occurred in the last yr. of his apprenticeship in Boston." [Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire, citation details below]

      According to his Wikitree page, the newspaper account mentioned above was in the Portsmouth New Hampshire Gazette, week of 20 Nov 1767, page 3, column 2.

      In 1730 he and his wife Dorcas sold the estate of "our father Simon Bussell" in Wells. In 1737 he and Dorcas, evidently both sick, were presented for absence from the Wells meeting. Records of the Madbury parish from 1756 to 1766 include numerous discussions of whether to vote support for him or to send him away. In 1767 the town voted 11 shillings to make his coffin and dig his grave.
