Misc. Notes
According to the Shed Genealogy523, Daniel Shed, “born in Groton, Mass., 13 June 1715, lived in his native town until about 1769 when he moved to Raby (since 1798 called Brookline), N.H., where in that year he was one of the petitioners for incorporation of a township. Daniel4 Shed and his sons Daniel5 and Jonas5 appear on the tax lists of Raby or Brookline from 1771 to 1786. In the latter year the family disappear from Raby and scatter to various places in New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts where the sons appear as heads of families in the United States Census of 1790. Where Daniel4 Shed resided after 1786 and where and when he died have not been learned.” (The Shed Genealogy gives birthdate for Daniel Shed as 13 June 1715 on p. 108 as quoted above, but as 12 June on p. 71.)

Skeate524 gives the marriage date of Mary Tarbell and Daniel Shed as “Oct. 6, 1740/41” which is confused, as double dates only have meaning between January and March. The Shed Genealogy gives their marriage date as 6 Oct 1740.
