Gregory Baxter1

b. 1607, d. 21 June 1659
Birth*1607Gregory Baxter was probably born by 1607 based upon the estimated date of his marriage.2
Marriage*He married Margaret Paddy.3
Will*2 June 1659In his will dated 2 June 1659, Gregory Baxter left his son-in-law, Samuel Deering, his "little piece of salt meadow adjoining his own house, being in quantitie about an acre of ground." Seventeen days later, on 19 June 1659, Gregory added a codicil that voided Samuel's original gift and substituted two weather sheep for the land which, instead, was to go to his wife Margaret and their son John. To his granddaughter Bethiah Deering he gave £10 to be paid to her when she became 16 years of age. Also to Bethiah, he bequeathed one black calf of a year old and one black young ewe sheep, both to be delivered to her father to be improved by him for her use until she reached 16 years of age. To his daughter Abigail and her husband, his son-in-law Joseph Adams, he bequeathed "six acres of land lying in the Great Field...and also my little island of salt marsh which lyeth at the head of the Salt Creek..." To Abigail and Joseph's son Joseph, he gave half his lands at the Captain's Plain, and if the child were to die without an heir, the lands were to go to Abigail's next oldest son or daughter if she had no son. To his son-in-law Joseph Adams, he also bequeathed his old mare. The rest of his estate he gave to his wife Margaret and their son John, his wife to have all the use of it while she lived and after her death John to have it all with the exception of two cows that Margaret could dispose of as she wished at her death. The remaining animals, Gregory's horse, two oxen, one cow and one steer were bequeathed to his son John.4,1,2
Death*21 June 1659He died on 21 June 1659 in Braintree.2

(Names mixed up and at least one generation skipped.) Samuel's son Josiah likely wrote parts of the obituary from his memory of stories his father had told him. And, of course, neither of them had any first hand information of anything before Samuel's birth in 1789. From this researcher's point of view, other sources should be considered more reliable -- especially on events and people of the 1600s and 1700s, Necrology of the Rhode Island Society for the Encouragement of Domestic Industry, for the year 1874, Providence, Rhode Island, LHB Notebook - Books, News, & Online, Santa Barbara, California.
