  • Notes 
    • The Preface of the Descendants of Richard Church of Plymouth Mass. describes the problematic confusion between David Church, son of Garrett Church and Sarah ___, and this person identified as David Church of Marlborough. It concludes that the similarities between the two "has been confounded constantly" and that they really are two separate individuals. Indeed, this profile was "split" away from David, the son of Garrett. His birthdate, birthplace, parentage and date of immigration are not (yet) known. It is believed that this David purchased land in Marlborough in 1701 and 1703. He was a Patentee and Town Clerk in 1708/9. He married in Marlborough on 21 July 1710, Mary (Howe) Wilder, widow of Jonathan Wilder, widow of Abraham Howe (separate bloodline) and daughter of Isaac Howe and Francis Woods.[1] They had four (known) children together, all born in Marlborough: 1) Adonijah b. on 17 Oct 1710; 2) Noah b. on 18 Sep 1712; 3) Ephraim b. on 18 Dec 1714; and Mary b. on 22 Jun 1717. There is no known record of his death or burial.
