He inherited the homestead, and the house was still standing in 1882, when it was destroyed by fire. It is now known as the Peterson farm, and was divided between his two sons, Joseph and John. His will was made May 8, 1722, and proved July 16, of the same year. His son David, who was the executor, was given the lands on the south side of the river and on the eastern side of Nichols brook. He married, January 23, 1688, Susanna Town, born in Topsfield, Massachusetts, December 24, 1671, died September 13, 1766, daughter of Joseph and Pheobe (Perkins) Town. They had children: 1.
