The house generally known as the Boaz Brown house on Harvard Road is thought to have been built by Boaz jr. about 1692. In a setting of open fields, handsome trees, and old stonewalls, it may be the second oldest existing house in Stow. Boaz Jr. lived from 1665 to 1710/11. There is a deed of lands from Stephen Hall, one of the first lot- holders, to Boaz Brown. Tradition has given the house a date of 1690, which seems probable. Boaz is said to have kept a tavern here.
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Boaz by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Boaz:
