    Notes 
    • Abel Merrill was the youngest in the second generation of Newbury Merrills, and, dying at forty-five years of age, his was the shortest life. His descendants, however, are more numerous, and more widely scattered, than those of most of his brothers. At the death of his father he was only eleven years of age. In 1668 he took the "oath of ffidelitie" to the government, and in September, 1678, he took the oath of allegiance, his age being then recorded as thirty-two years, although it would appear that he was at that time two years older
