Jay Triska is an unproven, undocumented person created from unsourced Ancestry trees. As such she has been disconnected from this profile. Do you have a valid source for Jay? B-404 17:25, 13 August 2014 (EDT)

NOTE: Mary Sarah Southwick Trask b 1636 d 1696, could not possibly be the mother of Osmond Trask b 1622ish, whose mother is not known anyway. I have disconnected her. Her bio says she was the wife of Capt William Trask. Capt William Trask did not have a son Osmond.{src: The Great Migration Begins}

Note: There is no proven relationship between William as brother of Osmund. per the article on William in the Great Migration Begins. They have two entirely different fathers.

Biography

Mar 14, 1622, bapt. Osmond, son of Edward Traske, in East Coker, Somerset, England.[1][2]

Osman Trask married Mary________, 1:11m: 1649. CT. R. Salem[3] That is Jan 1, 1649/50

Osman Trask married 2d Eliza[beth] Gally, May 22, 1663. CT. R.[3]

He died before 27 Mar 1677 (date of administration of will) in Beverly, Essex, Mass. His estate was left to his eldest son John, Osmond's wife Elizabeth, and his other eight children: Sarah & Mary, Samuel, Benjamin, Joseph, Elizabeth, William and Jonathan. It also provided for the unborn child of wife Elizabeth. The death date of before March 5, 1676 (stated in a previous version) needs sourcing.

First record found is his marriage in 1649 in Salem, Mass., where his first children were born and he was a proprietor and planter[4] He later resided in Beverly, which had been part of Salem.

1665 made a deposition[5] stating his age at about 38 (b. 1627). Another deposition in 1660 he was about age 35 (b 1625), both of these are not totally inconsistent with the 1622 baptism listed above.

Probate

Osmund Traske left no will, but administration of his estate was granted 27 Mar 1677 to Elizabeth Traske, his widow. An inventory was taken 5 Mar 1676 and valued at 841li. 9s. 5d, after debts were paid.(Ipswich Quarterly Court Records vo 5 p 288.) He had 57li. 1s.1d. debts. Distribution was made to John Trask, eldest son, and the other eight children, Sarah, Mary, Samuell, Benjamine, Joseph, Elizabeth, William and Jonathan, and the unborn child. 15 July 1695, John Giles and Elizabeth Gyles, alias Traske, made an accounting of portions paid to Joseph and Samuel Trask; Elizabeth Trask wife of Steven Herrick, William Trask, Benjamin Trask, Mary Friason, Sarah Holland, Edward Traske was still owed his share.

Never mind the previous comment. I realize there is one more Osmond Trask to merge. And I've already written a bio on that one. So in a few more days it should be good

If one of you two manager's wants to clean this up, that would be great, otherwise I'll see what I can do with it tomorrow or the next day.

Trask-281 and Trask-124 appear to represent the same person because: Death date and place indicate that these are the same person
posted by Anne B
Trask-233 and Trask-124 appear to represent the same person because: By the death date and wives these are clearly the same person.

NIcholas Trask may be the father of William (I don't know) but there is no proven relationship between William as brother of Osmund. per the article on William in the Great Migration Begins. In an attempt to merge the three Osmonds, I am disconnecting him from Nicholas & William.

Trask-233 and Trask-124 are not ready to be merged because: fathers are not the same
posted by Anonymous (Stout) S
Trask-233 and Trask-124 appear to represent the same person because: Help reduce duplicates. Nicholas is not the father of Osmond.

Thanks, Bob
