Samuel Winslow is listed on the 1800 federal census next to my ancestor Abraham Winslow. I am hoping that he might be Abraham's
father, or perhaps a brother. They were living in Freeport.
Abraham was killed by a falling tree in 1806 at age 43. Is there some way to discover the names of Samuel's children online rather
than writing to Yarmouth? I understand Samuel's name and that of his wife Ruth
Morrill are recorded in Yarmouth vital records, so that is an option.
Samuel married Ruth in 1739, and my ancestor, Abraham Winslow, married Elizabeth Welch on 12 Feb 1789. After his untimely death, Elizabeth collected
Abraham's Revolutionary War service pension. Her husband's friend, Ammi Dunham,
is on record as having testified as to Abraham's service to his country.
