      (3) Stearns, Ezra S., Genealogical and Family History of the State of New Hampshire, Vol. IV, New York, NY: The Lewis Publishing Company, 1908, p. 1800:

      Joseph [French], eldest son of Joseph and Sarah (Eastman) French, was born March 26, 1679, in Salisbury, and was known as "junior" while he lived in that town. He appears in Salisbury records as a carpenter in 1728 and 1739, and as husbandman in South Hampton in 1747. He probably did not change his residence, at least, for a great distance, as the establishment of the province line in 1741 set many residents of Salisbury into New Hampshire, in what was organized as the town of South Hampton in 1742. He was married, December 20, 1699, to Abigail, daughter of Philip and Mary (Buswell) Brown, and granddaughter of Deacon Henry Brown of Salisbury. Mary was a daughter of Isaac and Susanna Buswell. Joseph French died December 27, 1786. His children were: Sarah, Joseph, Ebenezer, Daniel, Abigail and Obadiah.
