  • Notes  Married:
    • "Elkanah Parris was at Williamstown as early as 1753. On Dec 13 of that year he was in the company of Capt Elisha Chapin at fort Massachusetts and served a considerable time, probably to near the close of the war. He returned to his native town, Pembroke, and married his wife at Scituate, returning with her to Williamstown. Soon after he built a house at the easterly part of the village, near Green River. After the Peace of Paris, 1763, he became a Quaker, and was the only family of that denomination in that town. In 1765 he was part owner of a saw mill near his home, and owned town lots 30 and 57, also 63. He was one of the proprietors of Williamstown and moderator of meeting, April 13, 1770, and Dec 17, 1771." [2]
