Family of James BRACKETT and Abigail BELCHER

James BRACKETT b. 1709 Nov 3937 at Braintree, MA937. d. 1781687. bd. Hancock Cem., Quincy, MA687.
Abigail BELCHER b. 1711 May 24841. d. bef Dec 1760841.

Married841 1733 Aug 1841 at Boston, MA841.

Sprague841 has James' death as 1784, ae. 72, from the Hancock Cem. gravestone. Brackett991 has death date 1781, as does Pattee687, 122: in the Brackett family tomb, Hancock Cem., "Mr James Brackett, his son [of Nathaniel Brackett], who died 1781, aged 72 years." Given the age at death, 1781 seems more likely.

Sprague has Abigail died (apparently) before husband James' second marriage to Mary (Glidden) (Burt) Brackett.

Child 4. Samuel

Sprague: Samuel died young.

Child 9. Ebenezer

Ebenezer was a Revolutionary War soldier and died single. Sprague841 has Ebenezer's death as 1794, ae. 43, per gravestone in Hancock Cem. Pattee687, p 122, has, in the Brackett family tomb, "Mr. Ebenezer Brackett, son of said James Brackett, who died 1791, aged 43 years." Perhaps either (or both) Sprague or Pattee misread the last number of the year, but, from his age at death, 1794 would be more likely.
