  • Notes 
    • Son of Samuel & Elizabeth Eddy; husband of Elizabeth (Bullock) Eddy. Died at age 69 years. The Eddy Family in America states, "Caleb Eddy, the third son of Samuel of Plymouth, settled farther to the west in Swansea, near the Kickemuit river and he is buried in the cemetery on its west bank, in the town of Warren (formerly this spot was in Swansea). This cemetery is about half a mile north of the Kickemuit Water Works. Not far from the center of the plot is an evergreen tree (a cedar, if I recall correctly) and near this is the grave of Caleb Eddy with the inscription, 'Here lyeth the Body of Caleb Eddy aged 69 years Deceased March 23 in the year of our Lord 1713.' ....There are many stones without any inscriptions. Probably one of these belongs to Elizabeth Bullock, Caleb's wife, and others to his son Zachariah and his son Samuel, who married Sarah Estabrooks. Three of his daughters married into the Cole Family. At least two of these are buried here. Caleb's other two sons went to Boston, where they died."
