    Notes 
    • (1) Thomas Shepard's Memoir of His Own Life, annotated and printed in Young, Alexander, Chronicles of the First Planters of the Colony of Massachusetts Bay from 1623 to 1636, Boston, MA: C. C. Little and J. Brown, 1846:

      The second [child I had by Joanna HOOKER], whom the Lord I bless hath hitherto spared, viz. my little Samuel, is yet living.

      [Note by the annotator: He was born in October, 1641, and was brought up, I believe, in the family of his grandfather Hooker, at Hartford. In an unpublished letter that I have seen, written by Samuel Stone of Hartford, and dated July 19, 1647, in which he gives a very affecting account of the death of his colleague, he says, "Little Sam. Shepard is well." He was ordained at Rowley Nov. 15, 1665, the third minister of that town, and died April 7, 1688, aged 26. See Gage's story of Rowley, pp. 19, 74.]
