Bolton purchased ten acres of wood lands laid out below the land of John Hayward of the Plain in the swamp, butting partly upon John Hayward's and partly upon land laid out to Elihu Brett, running easterly for its length 60 rods and 24 in breadth, bounded by a swamp pine near the northwest corner and a torn pine tree at the northeast corner and by a red oak tree at the southeast corner and from the red oak ranging westward to a small swamp pine marked on two sides near John Hayward's land where it buts and joins to the lands of John Kingman on the west side and to the lands of Joseph Hayward on the southerly side and easterly end.3
Residence* In Bridgewater, John and Sarah Hayward lived with their family on the Plain between the late old Mr. Jonathan Copeland's place and the old Powder House, where their daughter and son-in-law, Sarah and Nathaniel Brett, lived after them and where the young Jonathan Copeland lived in 1897.2

(Father-NOT) Birth4 May 1782Josiah Hayward Jr. could not have been the father of Otis Hayward who was born on 4 May 1782 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts (Continental Congress). Both the History of Bridgewater source and the Hayward source reported that Otis was the son of Josiah Hayward Jr. of Bridgewater, although each identified a different mother. Josiah Jr. died in 1773, nine years before Otis was born in 1782, so a father-son relationship is clearly impossible. The History of Bridgewater source noted his mother as Mary Dunham and the Hayward source noted her as Molly Sever. Another review of the evidence indicates to this researcher that Otis was actually the son of a yet another Josiah Hayward and his wife Dinah (__?__) Muxham.7,8,1
