Vital Records of Chelmsford, Mass., p. 77, records b. of “Elesabeth HARWOD, dau. of Nathaniell and Mary, Jan. 28, 1701,”  The same volume (p.84) records b. of Elizabeth HOWARD on 21 April 1717.

Chelmsford 30 Aug. 1751, aged 82 years. as was his wid. Mary. 10 Oct. 1758, aged 85 years (Vital Records of Chelmsford, p. 400).  See also W. H.
