Marriage*after 28 July 1690He married first Jane Washburn, daughter of John Washburn and Elizabeth Mitchell, after 28 July 1690 and before 10 September 1694 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County.2
(Son) Probate Agreement5 December 1694An agreement dated 5 December 1694 between Martha Orcutt of Bridgewater, widow of William Orcutt who died in 1693, and her children included sons William Orcutt Jr., John Orcutt, Andrew Orcutt, Joseph Orcutt, Thomas Orcutt and Benjamin Orcutt and daughters Martha Orcutt, Hannah Orcutt, Mary Orcutt and Susanna Orcutt. William and his five brothers each received a share of their father's land and his four sisters each received £6. Under the agreement their mother was to have the house and lands adjoining it with the benefits and privileges thereof until her son Thomas reached the age of 21. At that time, the widow Orcutt was to continue to have full and free liberty to live in the house and to improve it for her own use during her widowhood, to receive four acres of broken up and improved land and to have firewood provided for her.4,5
(Father) Research OpinionDaughter Joanna was named in his will, and if born in 1694 and married at age 25, would have been age 42 at the birth of her tenth child. While the Mayflower Cooke source chose caution and identified Jane Washburn as Joanna's possible mother, this researcher believes Jane the more probable choice since William and Hannah Smith didn't marry until 21 September 1698.2
(Father) Research OpinionDaughter Elizabeth was named in his will, and if born in 1696, would have married at age 21. While the Mayflower Cooke source chose caution and identified Jane Washburn as Joanna's possible mother, this researcher believes Jane the more probable choice since William and Hannah Smith didn't marry until 21 September 1698.2
(Husband) Deathbefore 21 September 1698William became a widower when Jane (Washburn) Orcutt died.2

Ebenezer Osgood

(Friend) Baptism26 July 1795Ebenezer Osgood attended the baptism of David Sohier Dennie on 26 July 1795 in King's Chapel, Boston. The church record of baptism listed the child's parents as Elizabeth Turell Dennie and Ebenezer Osgood. The record didn't include a surname for David, and in the index, his surname was shown as DENNIE. It should be noted, for future reference regarding the child David, that on 29 Feb 1795, one month before his birth, a man named David Sohier was married in Boston to Mary Ogden (or Holden, per their intention of marriage) by the Reverend John Murray, a Universalist minister.1,2
Almshouse6 September 1796Ebenezer Osgood and Elizabeth Dana were admitted to the Almshouse in Boston on 6 September 1796. With them, and also admitted at the same time, was a child recorded as having been born to Elizabeth. The child was not identified further by name, sex or age, and it's possible that David, the child she had baptized with Ebenezer Osgood in 1795, may have been the child.3
Almshouse29 March 1797Ebenezer Osgood and Elizabeth Dana were discharged from the Almshouse in Boston on 29 March 1797. With them, and also discharged at the same time, was the child born to Elizabeth who had been admitted with them on 6 Sep 1796.3

James Otis Esq.1,2

Biographical Info* James Otis was one of the most passionate and effective protectors of American rights during the 1760s, but his bright star dimmed during his lifetime and remains so today. He was born in West Barnstable on Cape Cod, the son of a prominent Massachusetts political figure with the same name. Young Otis graduated from Harvard College in 1743, practiced law briefly in Plymouth, and in 1750, settled in Boston, where he became a highly respected lawyer.

In 1769, at the height of his popularity and influence, Otis was pulled from the public stage. He had infuriated a Boston custom-house official with a vicious newspaper attack; the official beat Otis on his head with a cane. For the remainder of his life, Otis was subject to long bouts of mental instability. He was unable to participate in public affairs and spent most of his time wandering through the streets of Boston, enduring the taunts of a populace that had quickly forgotten his contributions. Otis was struck and killed by lightning in May 1783.1
(Lawyer) Biographical InfoAfter graduating from Harvard College in 1760, the Honorable William Hooper, who later become one of the signers of America's Declaration of Independence, studied law with James Otis Esq. in Boston.2,3,1,4
