Abigail Sheldon1

b. 15 March 1743/44, d. 7 March 1792
ChartsDescendants of William Bolton of Reading, The Immigrant
Father*William Sheldon2
Mother*Abigail Gowing2
Birth*15 March 1743/44Abigail Sheldon was born on 15 March 1743/44 in Lynn, Essex County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).3,4
Marriage*28 March 1765She married William Bolton Jr., son of William Bolton and Mary __?__, on 28 March 1765 by the Reverend Eliab Stone in Reading, Middlesex County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).1,5
Relocation*circa 1767Abigail and William Bolton Jr. moved circa 1767 to Shirley, Middlesex County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England), where he had purchased part of the estate of Jonathan Moore, gentleman.6
(Wife) Land TransferFrom a deed, it appears that William Bolton Jr. gave Thomas Sheldon, believed to have been his brother-in-law, a piece of land in Shirley, Middlesex County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England), and promised to care for his mother, Abigail Gowing Sheldon, until her death, and to give her a Christian burial. This curious agreement was thwarted by William's early death.6
(Wife) Death7 May 1780Abigail became a widow when William Bolton Jr. died on 7 May 1780.1,6
Administration18 May 1780The first papers in the Administration of William Bolton Jr.'s estate, dated on 18 May 1780 and recorded at Middlesex County, Massachusetts (Continental Congress), describe him as late of Shirley, a yeoman and having died intestate. They appoint his widow, Abigail Bolton, as Administrator and require that a full inventory of the estate be made. An itemized inventory was submitted to the court on 1 Jun 1780 and showed a total value of about 10,000 pounds. Abigail also submitted a list of expenses she had incurred since her husband's death, totalling about 1,700 pounds. Among the expenses were "keeping my aged mother" and "keeping my three children who are under seven years of age."7
Estate17 April 1781The court approved the inventory and expenses submitted by William Bolton Jr.'s widow, Abigail Bolton, on 17 April 1781 and determined that William's estate be distributed. Abigail, as the deceased's widow, was to receive "one full Third Part" of the total estate.7
Marriage*She married Ezra Smith, son of Nathan Smith and Rebecca Bixby.8
Death*7 March 1792She died on 7 March 1792 in Shirley, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, at age 47.3,9
BurialShe may have been buried in Center Cemetery, Shirley. A gravestone in honor of her memory is there and reads: "In memory of Mrs. Abigail Smith the wife of Mr. Ezra Smith who died March 7 1790 in the 47 year of her age. Death is a debt to nature due, which she has paid and so must you". Because the year of death on the stone conflicts with the Vital Records of Massachusetts, additional research is needed and is being pursued.10,11
Administration*16 April 1793Her Administration was opened on 16 April 1793 in Middlesex County, Massachusetts, and on 20 Apr 1793, Jonas Page, Nathan Adams and Wallis Little were appointed to appraise the real estate she received as her dower after her husband, William Bolton Jr. died in 1780 and would, as a result of her death, be distributed to William and Abigail's children.7

Edward Shepard1

d. circa 1680
Research Notes* The Edward Shepard source presented a convincing narrative, albeit without identifying his sources, regarding the Shepard-Pond relationships between Edward and his second wife, widow Mary Pond, and his daughter Abigail and her husband Daniel Pond. First, the author suggested that the widow Mary Pond was in Cambridge prior to her marriage with Edward Shepard. He stated that "the daughter of Mary Pond married John Blackman, and their first child was born 10 August 1656". Our own research cannot yet verify that marriage, although there was a birth on 10 August 1656 of John Blackman, son of John Blackman recorded in both Dorchester and Cambridge. The author further suggested that because the widow Mary Pond's husband Robert Pond had died in 1637, it would be probable that she brought at least her younger children with her to Cambridge. The exact date of Edward's second wife Mary's arrival in Cambridge is not known, although church records in Cambridge state that she had been dismissed from the church in Dorchester and that her daughter Mary Pond, who had been baptized in Dorchester, was 11 years old when her mother joined the church at Cambridge. Daughter Mary would probably have been aged 11 in about 1646 and Edward Shepard's first wife died in 1649. The church record is unclear as to whether or not Edward Shepard's second wife joined the Cambridge Church before or after her marriage to Edward, although it is certainly possible it was before. Then, second, the author suggested the probability that the Daniel Pond who married Edward Shepard's daughter Abigail was the son of his second wife, the widow Mary Pond. If Daniel was born about 1627, he would have been about age 19 in 1646 and about 21 years old when he married Abigail.2,3,4,5
Marriage*He married Violet __?__ in England.2
(Husband) Death9 January 1648/49Edward became a widower when Violet (__?__) Shepard died on 9 January 1648/49.2
Marriage*He married second, as her second husband, Mary Pond possibly in Cambridge, Middlesex County.2
Residence*He lived in Cambridge, Middlesex County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England).1
Residence*After the couple's marriage, Mary's youngest children, Mary, Jonathan and Sarah, lived in Mary and Edward Shepard's home in Cambridge, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England).6
Death*circa 1680He died circa 1680 in Cambridge.7
