    (A508) HAYDEN/ALDEN - Nathaniel HAYDEN, b. at Braintree, Mass., 3 Jan. 1724/5; d. in Westmoreland Co., Pa., 5 Sept. 1812, son of Samuel & Priscilla (WEBB) HAYDEN (Peter & Ruth (BASS) WEBB), John & Ruth (ALDEN) BASS, John & Priscilla (MULLINS) ALDEN); m. 28 Aug. 1752 Sarah Zervia SUTTON.

    (A512) HOWARD/MANN - Your Jason MANN of Wrentham. Mass., may relate to a Jason5MAN, son of John4 (Nathaniel3, Samuel2, William1) & Mahitabel MAN, m. 10 Oct. 1744. John b. 12 Aug. 1707. Ch,: John51745/6; Esther; Beriah; Jason; and Rowland.  From Mann Memorial, Gen. of the Desc. of Richard Man of Scituate, Mass. (1884), NEHGS Loan.

    (AS 12) Jason MANN lived on a property in Plainville, Mass., from 1766 until his d. in 1816.  Sylvia, as wid. stayed on longer.  As a member of the local Hist. Commission, I became involved in documenting the house which now stands where their house stood, P. 20 of Man Memorial (1884) says that Jason was the son of John & Mehitable.  The VR., however, show that Mehitable d. 1753, and Jason (b. 1760) was son of John & Mary.  Although no m. rec. for John & Mary shows in Wrentham records, it is poss. that the widower (age 46) m. the much younger Mary (1731-1828) and sired 4 more ch. by her.  Son’s name Rowland is unique in Wrentham history. Sylvia’s par.?

    (A512) Sylvia (HOWARD) MANN’s d. rec. in Wrentham. Mass., 4 July 1861, gives her father’s name as “Silas MANN, of Mendon” - an obvious clerical error as to surname.  Wrentham m. rec. show one Silas HOWARD m. Susanna FORCE 1767.  Sylvia (b. 1769) could have been a ch. of that m. Susanna FORCE grew up on a farm very near the farm bought by John MANN in 1766 where Jason MANN lived for most of his life.  Jason MANN (1760-1816) is the son of John MAN/MANN & his 2nd w. Mary d. 1828.  He is the same Jason wrongly ascribed to Mahitabel in Mann Memorial (1884).

    (A538) ROWLEY/STEWART - See Genealogical Register Early Families Shoreham. Vt., by MacIntire & Witherell, p. 189-91: Hopkins ROWLEY was b. at Pittsford, Vt.  The book gives several generations of this family, which I am sure has a Mayflower connection.

    (A539) HANCOCK/SHEPARDSON - I believe your Abigail SHEPARDSON is dau. of Nathaniel SHEPARDSON, Esq, (1731-1817), who m. Sarah FOLLETT of Attleboro in 1754.  Abigail’s b. is recorded in Attleboro as 9 June 1750.  In Nathaniel’s will (proved in RI. on June 28, 1817, re-filed in Mass., Nov. 17 1827: Norfolk Co.
