Whittemore, Samuel (b. 1647, d. 15 SEP 1726)
Note: Samuel Whittemore lived briefly in Dover, New Hampshire, before settling on a farm in what is now Somerville, Massachusetts. He practiced as a wheelwright as well as being a farmer.

He appears to have been litigious by nature, judging from the number of lawsuits he was involved in, usually as the plaintiff, but he was also apparently generous, giving away houses and lands to his children before his death. He left an estate of one hundred and sixty-one pounds, six shillings, and four pence.

Note: Gershom Cutter most probably lived at the house called "Under the Rocks" that was later occupied by his son Gershom, in that part of Cambridge then called Menotomy and now known as Arlington. In all likelihood he was a farmer.

Symmes, William (b. ABT JAN 1626/27, d. 22 SEP 1691)
Note: Not a great deal is known about Captain William Symmes, not even the origin of the military title. We know that he received a quit-claim to 3000 acres, jointly with Edward Wilson, located in the land of Node.

He died intestate and the inventory of his estate, signed by some of his children and siblings, laments his "having died in an untimely, aggravated and sudden manner, . . ." Unfortunately, it gives no clue as to the exact nature of his death. His estate was valued at 624 pounds.

He and his wife were the 2nd great grandparents of Mrs. William Henry Harrison, and thus the 4th great grandparents of President Benjamin Harrison.
