From the History of Deerfield, genealogy page 202:
Samuel came to Hadley with his father; was an original owner in the 8000 acre grant, and in 1670 he owned one twelfth of the entire property; in 1669, before the lands were divided, he had broken up several acres, and was our [Deerfield’s] first settler; the committee found him a "Resident," in May, 1670; he lived on No. 14; he fell with Lothrop; his personal estate of £45 was "given his widow to bring up their children;" the "Land at Deerfield, alias Paucomtuck, not being valued in regard to the present Indian war rendering it at present of little worth, but being hopeful to prove a Real Estate hereafter," was given to Samuel and Mehuman. ''the Eldest to have a double share."
