Otis Hayward1,2

b. 4 May 1782
Father*Josiah Hayward d. 21 Dec 1797
Mother*Mrs. Dinah Muxham d. 4 Dec 1822
Birth*4 May 1782Otis Hayward 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.1,3,2
Marriage Intention30 June 1804An intention of marriage for Otis Hayward and Betsy Parris was recorded on 30 June 1804 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts.4
