Early Settlers of Haverhill

Drawing from various sources, Lin Wright developed this list of earliest settlers of Haverhill, including the dates they appeared, the town from which they came, and their death or moving date.  The goal is to establish descendancy lists from each of these early settlers.  I invite your help in this effort.  If you have at least a four-generation descendancy list for any of these early settlers, please contact me (Terryl Whitaker Pilon) with the information and I will create both a page and a link to it.

The column headed "appeared" in the table below is the first date the person appeared in Haverhill records. The column headed "removed" is the date he left town and the place he went or death if it occurred in Haverhill.
