Mother*Elizabeth Hooper1,2 b. 13 Apr 1729, d. a 1 Jan 1811
Birth*circa 1763Zilpah Snow was born circa 1763 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).1
Marriage Intention24 May 1795An intention of marriage for David Bolton and Zilpah Snow of Raynham was recorded on 24 May 1795 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts.3
Marriage*She married David Bolton, son of Jonathan Bolton and Thankful Borden.1
Census 1800*Zilpah (Snow) Bolton was likely enumerated on the 1800 census in the household of her husband David Bolton in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts. David and Zilpah would have been married about 5 years in 1800, and were both noted in the age category of 26 thru 44. Their household had two children: 1 male under 10 and 1 female under 10 who were probably their children and have not yet been fully identified.4
(Daughter) Will9 March 1807Zilpah Bolton was named in the will of her father Ebenezer Snow dated 9 March 1807 in Raynham, Bristol County, Massachusetts. The will named his son Ebenezer his Executor and made the following bequests: to his beloved wife Elizabeth, during her life, he gave the use of the easterly front room in his dwelling house along with a "decent annual maintenance" to be provided by his son Ebenezer; to his son Ebenezer, his heirs and assigns forever, he gave all his real and personal estate of whatever name or nature forever, and instructed Ebenezer to pay all the debts, funeral charges and other bequests named in the will; to each of his three daughters, Sarah Hall, Betsey Warren and Zilpah Bolton, he gave $20, and to his grandson Nathan Snow, he gave $1, stating again that all were to be paid by his son Ebenezer.5,6
(Heir) Probate1 January 1811In addition to a copy of her father's will, the only other document in the probate packet for her father's estate was dated 1 January 1811 at Raynham, Bristol County, Massachusetts. The will officially approved on that date, his son and Executor, Ebenezer Snow Jr., along with Jonathan Shaw, Esq. and Seth Hall, Gentleman, agreed to pay the sum of $5,000 to the Judge of the Probate and Wills. The condition of the obligation was that Ebenezer Snow Jr. agreed as Executor to assume and pay all the debts and legacies of his father, Ebenezer Snow. The document appears to imply that all recipients named in the will were still living on 1 Jan 1811.6

George Soule

b. circa 1600, d. circa 22 January 1679
Birth*circa 1600George Soule was born circa 1600 in England.
(Signer) Mayflower Compact11 November 1620George Soule was one of the 41 adult males who signed the Mayflower Compact on 11 November 1620 onboard the Mayflower which was at anchor in what is now Provincetown Harbor, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony). All 41 of the adult male members on the Mayflower signed the Compact. It outlined the first written laws for the new land, determined authority within the settlement and was observed as "the law" until 1691. The Compact established that the colony of mostly persecuted Separatists was to be free of English law. It was devised to set up a government from within themselves and was written by those to be governed. When creating the Mayflower Compact, the signers believed that covenants were not only to be honored between God and man, but also between each other. They had always honored covenants as part of their righteous integrity and agreed to be bound by this same principle with the Compact. John Adams and many historians have referred to the Mayflower Compact as the foundation of the U.S. Constitution written more than 150 later.1,2,3
(Original Proprietor) Land Grant1656George Soule was among the fifty-four Duxbury men listed in 1645 as original proprietors for the development of the town that would become Bridgewater, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony). Two others, Reverend James Keith and Samuel Edson, were added to the group later, and when the town of Bridgewater was actually incorporated in 1656 there were a total of fifty-six. Of these proprietors, only eighteen, about one-third, actually relocated and became residents of the new plantation. George Soule was one of those who never relocated his family and moved to Bridgewater.

The area known as the Bridgewaters was originally inhabited by Wampanoag who called it Saughtuchquett (Satucket). In 1642 when the township of Marshfield was separated from Duxbury and became its own distinct entity, Duxbury petitioned the court for additional land “to the westward” in compensation.

The General Court granted their petition in 1645 and six trustees, Captain Myles Standish, John Alden, George Soule, Constant Southworth, John Rogers, and William Brett were appointed to divide the land. The action by the General Court was primarily an authority to purchase land, and Captain Standish, Samuel Nash, and Constant Southworth were appointed to make the purchase. The deed was signed on 23 Mar 1649.

The Bridgewater lands were divided among the inhabitants “by an agreement among themselves”. Unfortunately, there is no record to tell us how the town proceeded to agree to their division, or how, by whom, or when it was determined what residence or other circumstance should entitle anyone to a share.

(Grantor) Land Transfer1660George Soule, Moses Simmons and Philip Delano never moved to Bridgewater and in 1660 sold their proprietor shares to Nicholas Byram who settled there soon after.9
Death*circa 22 January 1679He died circa 22 January 1679 in Duxbury, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony).

Marriage*27 April 1675He married second, as her second husband, Mary (Newcomb) Deering, daughter of Francis Newcomb and Rachel ______, on 27 April 1675.1,3
(Husband) Death1 August 1678George became a widower for the second time when Mary (Newcomb) Deering Spear died on 1 August 1678.2
Marriage*He married third widow Elizabeth Gent of New Dartmouth in the Province of Maine possibly in Boston where she had taken refuge with her children during the Indian Wars.2
Relocation*After their marriage George Spear and his wife Elizabeth went to New Dartmouth, Cornwall County, Maine, (now in Lincoln County) and occupied the Gent property.2
Indian Attack*21 May 1688George was still living there on 21 May 1688 when, calling himself husbandman, he sent a petition to the Governor of New England stating that his wife's first husband, John Gent, was an ancient inhabitant of New Dartmouth, owning much land, before the Indian War, and was "cast away" while his family was in Boston, that he, Spear, had married the widow, returned to New Dartmouth when it was newly settled, bringing much stock with him, and that now being "very Antient" he wished to have his two sons Samuel and Nathaniel Spear live near him and to see them settled while he was still alive, and therefore asked that they be granted one hundred and fifty acres apiece as near to the town as may be, by His Majesty's patent and at a moderate quit-rent. His hopeful plan was never achieved, for less than four months later on 5 and 6 September 1688, New Dartmouth was attacked by a strong force of Indians. Although most of the inhabitants were able to reach the safety of the garrison and eventually escaped to the westward, all of the houses and buildings were burned and the place was completely deserted for the next thirty years.2
Death*September 1688He may have died as a result of the Indian attack on New Dartmouth in September 1688 because he was never heard of again. He would have been about 75 years of age.2

Name VariationAt home he was called Lewis.2
(Son) Census 18509 October 1850Talbot Spicer, Charles Spicer and Edgar Lewis Spicer was not included on the 1850 census taken on 9 October 1850 in the household of his parents, Reuben H. Spicer and Sophia Spicer, in Township 14 N R 1 W, Mercer County, Illinois. The census taker's accuracy leaves much to be desired, and the record's transcription is also questionable. The record indicates that the Spicer's real estate holdings were valued at $5,000 and they had five children in their household. "Alivica" was enumerated as age 9 although Sarah Amelia was actually 12 and two years older than her sister, Augusta spelled "Autusta", who was recorded as 10. The 9-year-old Edgar Lewis was not enumerated with the family. Talbot, transcribed as "Salbot" was 7 and the two youngest children, Charles F. and Lucy were 5 and 2 respectively.3
