Boaz married three times.
Boaz BROWN (Thomas-1) was born on 14 Feb 1641/2 in Concord, MA. He was admitted as Freeman Concord, Oct 15, 1673. He was one of the founders of Stow Mass in 1683. Also chosen as one of the first selectmen and for several terms thereafter. He was the first minister of the Stow Congregational Church. Boaz moved to Dedham where he was called Ensign in the tax records of 1695. Sometime after 1715 he returned to Concord, where he died April 9, 1724. Boaz was one of several men from Concord who were responsible for founding Stow Ma 1683 when they purchased the Indian Plantation "Pompositticut".
Excerpt from Boaz Brown's (1641-1724) will. "unto my two grandsons Amos Brown and Boaz Brown ye children of my youngest son Edward Brown deceased I do will and bequeath all my housing and lands to me belonging within ye limits and bounds of ye aforesaid Town of Stow." The will also mentions his "three grandchildren, Deliverance Brown, Mercy Heald, and Ephraim Brown ye surviving children of my eldest son Boaz Brown deceased".
There are many unresolved issues related to Boaz Brown's life. Some have been researched for over 100 years with no resolution. 1) Boaz mother has not been determined. Bateman might be an error. 2) The names and ancestory of his 2nd and 3rd Wives is still controversial.
The name of his 1st wife, Mary Winship, does not seem to be an issue. She was the mother of all the children.-KRW
Some have made the error of reporting that it was Boaz Brown, Jr, instead of Boaz Brown, Sr, who married to Mary Richards, the widow of John Richards. Others have reported that Mary was the daughter of John Richards, instead of the widow.

Abigail's name is spelled Wheat in the Concord Vital Records: "Abegail Wheat" married Boaz Brown "both of Concord" on Sept. 10, 1716. It is spelled Abigail Wheatt in Samuel Wheat's will (lol, whose name is spelled "Sammual Wheatt" there.) Virtually all of the Wheat family of Concord spelled their name similarly. I have never seen the Waite variant in any records or in the cemeteries of Concord, therefore don't think it should be used here.
The two Jabez brothers should be merged (Brown- 47062 and Brown-1628)
