The History of Bristol County shows the following burials in the Pine Hill Cemetery in East Taunton:
"In memory of Capt. Ephraim Dean, who died in Gloucester June 23d, 1775, in the 75th year of his age."
"In memory of Mrs. Mary Dean, the wife of Capt. Ephraim Dean, who died Octo. ye 8, 1766, in ye 67th year of her age."
"In memory of Mrs. Martha Dean, the wife of Capt. Ephraim Dean, she died May ye 9, 1775, in the 72d year of her age."
The Vital Records of Taunton add that Captain Ephriam Dean died on his way to Ashford.
A quit claim deed in Ashford, CT, dated 8 Nov 1770 in which Martha Dean and her husband Capt. Ephraim Dean of Taunton give up any rights to a forty-one acre farm in Ashford which Jonathan Kingsbury bought from William Knowlton (Jr.) and upon which Martha Dean previously lived, confirms that Martha Dean was the previous Martha (Pinder) Knowlton, wife of William Knowlton.
Additionally, I have Hannah Hayward, daughter of John/Jonathan Hayward and Anne Carpenter, married Zephaniah Dean, son of Ephraim Dean and Mary Allen, on 2 Oct 1755. The Taunton VR confirm that Ephraim Dean married Mary Allen.
I am interested in any information relating to these families.
