Misc. Notes
According to the Shed Genealogy528, Daniel Shed “was born in Billerica, Mass., 11 Jan. 1692/3, and when a child was taken by his parents in their successive removals to Chelmsford in 1694 and Groton in 1702. He became a farmer in Groton and though his life was cut short in early manhood yet he had acquired considerable property. He died 2 Oct. 1723, a few weeks prior to his father’s death. His widow was administratrix of his estate with Jonathan Hubbard; the papers relating to its settlement show he had four children of whom one was born five months after his death; the inventory of his estate was about £392, a good sum for a young man in those days. (Middlesex County Probate Records, File 20198.)

“He married about 1714, “ABIGAIL _____; she married again, 20 Oct. 1725, DANIEL FARNSWORTH, born 11 May, 1692, son of John and Hannah (Aldis) Farnsworth of Groton. He was chosen deacon of the church in Groton 14 May 1729, was an estimable citizen, and died there 27 Jan. 1775. They had no children.”
