children of Rebecca Lapham and Barnabus Howland:1

i. Judith, 14 March 1724/25
ii. Benjamin, b. 25 June 1727
iii. Elizabeth, b. 20 March 1729/30
iv. Sylvia, b. 28 April 1732
v. Gideon, b. 29 May 1734
vi. Lydia, b. 9 September 1735 (full date in Dartmouth Monthly Meeting records)





vital records sources: her birth dates are from several sources: Vital Records of Dartmouth, Massachusetts, to the year 1850 vol. 1 (New England Historic Genealogical Society:Boston, 1929), 148, and the Dartmouth Monthly Meeting records say 5th of 8th month, which is Oct. on the contemporary Julian calendar; a family Bible says 8th of the 5th month (July). I don't favor one source over the other. Her marriage is in the Dartmouth MM records and from there, published in Vital Records of Dartmouth, Massachusetts, to the year 1850 vol. 2 (New England Historic Genealogical Society:Boston, 1930), 248. Her death is in ibid, vol. 3 (New England Historic Genealogical Society:Boston, 1930), 40, and in the Dartmouth MM records.
