  1. 2.  Rev. Edward Bulkeley Descendancy chart to this point (1.Peter1) was born before 12 Jun 1614; died on 2 Jan 1696 in Chelmsford, Middlesex, Massachusetts; was buried in Concord, Middlesex, Massachusetts.

    Notes:

    Arriving in 1634, he was the first of the extensive Bulkeley family to come to New England.

    Matriculated pensioner from St. Catharine's College, Cambridge, Easter 1629, he studied with the Rev. Cotton in New England while boarding at his house. He was ordained in Marshfield in 1643. After fifteen years as the minister there, he was installed as his father's successor at Concord in 1659, and remained there for 53 years.

    He is said to have been disabled in some manner ("lame and of a feeble constitution"). Of his preaching style, Grindall Reynolds had this to say in 1896:
    One production of Mr. Bulkeley has escaped the tooth of time, -- his sermon delivered after the return of Captain Thomas Wheeler from Brookfield fight. It was a time to stir a man's soul. The whole Colony was convulsed. Every frontier settlement and every lonely farmhouse was in peril. Two of his parishioners had been slain. Two more came home so shattered that they lingered only a few months. The lot of these might any hour be the lot of his hearers. You read the sermon through from text to conclusion. There is not one throb of pathos in it. You cannot find an eloquent line, hardly an impressive sentence. It is a maze of Inquisitions and Instructions, of Applications and Uses, of Doctrines and Reasons, of Motives and Improvements, wherein the mind wanders and is lost. How could a tender human heart help breaking through the meshes of formality? And how was it possible for men, of rude speech possibly, but of strong and hot sympathies, to admire or approve such stiff and measured utterance?

    With so little to guide it is not possible to speak confidently. Still this is certain. The younger Bulkeley has not left behind the impression of power which his father did. Apparently he had not his vigorous personality, his culture, or his great heart. Mather calls him "the worthy son" of a worthy sire. Clearly he was that. An honest, faithful, and devout man. But with all his real excellence one who did not rise much above mediocrity.

    Notes:

    From Wikipedia (accessed 22 May 2020):

    Gershom Bulkeley was an early graduate of Harvard University, receiving his bachelor's degree in 1655 and possibly his master's degree in 1658. After receiving his master's degree he might have married Sarah Chauncy, daughter of then Harvard President, Charles Chauncy. In 1661 became the minister of the Congregational church in New London, CT, where he served for roughly 5 years. He then became minister of the Congregational church in the town of Wethersfield, Connecticut where he served until 1677. He left the ministry and practiced as a physician in Glastonbury, CT.

    When the Salem Witch Trials spread from Massachusetts to Connecticut in the autumn of 1692, he expressed considerable scepticism about the evidence, saying that he had heard nothing of any weight to convince him that anyone was guilty of witchcraft. In particular he argued that Marcy Disborough, one of the only two women accused in Connecticut who actually stood trial for witchcraft, was the victim of the malice of her neighbours. Mercy was founded guilty and sentenced to death, but received a reprieve. She was set free and died some time after 1709.

    Gershom married Sarah Chauncy on 6 Oct 1659 in Concord, Middlesex, Massachusetts. Sarah was born on 13 Jun 1631 in Ware, Hertfordshire, England; died on 3 Jun 1699 in Wethersfield, Hartford, Connecticut. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    From the Find a Grave page for Pvt John Damon:

    John was a minor when his father died (about age 15) and as such his father's will puts him under the guardianship of Thomas Poole (1673-1732) for male guidance. Poole was indirectly related to the Damons since his sister Rebecca had married Peter Emerson. Poole was also trusted by the community since in 1721 the Reading community vote him to a committee of three that would oversee a loan fund from money provided to various towns by the Massachusetts General Court to stimulate growth. Individuals could borrow from 5 to 20 pounds. His brother-in-law Peter Emerson was also on this committee. John's 12 year old sister Abigail was placed under the guardianship of her mother Lucy Ann. [...]

    He enlisted (or perhaps had already trained) as a private in the Captain Josiah Putnam's company in Col. Jedediah Foster's regiment which marched to Roxbury at Boston when the first alarm was raised. His son Peter was a corporal in this same company, which was led by his father-in-law (Peter had married Lydia Putnam, and his brother Jude married Ruth Putnam, both the nieces of General Israel Putnam).

    A John Damon is named in the the fourth school district for Western in 1779 when it was divided into six districts. There are 14 other families in this district including Peter Demon (Damon) who is John's son and Isaac Gleason who must be a relative of John's wife Hannah Gleason. In district 4 there are also five Bliss families (Aaron, Edward, Isaac, Moses, and Solomon) and others as well( Reuben in #2, and Samuel in #3) who are likely relatives of John's daughter-in-law Esther Hubbard whose mother was Hannah Bliss. Other Gleasons in the town include John (district 1) and Joseph (district 5). So it would appear that these families stayed close to each other as a social network for mutual support.

    Family/Spouse: Hannah. Hannah died in 1758. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
