"ZOETH, born in Duxbury; married to Abigail October, 1656. They moved to Dartmouth about
1662 for more congenial society. Zoeth was killed by the Indians during the famous King Philip's war.
The English had a skirmish with the Indians in Tiverton, south of Howland's ferry, and from that time
they greatly annoyed the settlers. At the time of Zoeth's death the war was going on in southwestern
Rhode Island only, the savages in this section were doubtless full of revenge, and Zoeth was one of their victims."

"Zoeth Howland, the second son of Henry Howland and Mary Newland, was born in Duxbury
about 1636. In October, 1656, he was married to his wife, Abigail, as appears by the Friends'
record at Newport, R. I. In 1657 he took the oath of Fidelitie at Duxbury. In the same year he,
with his father, was fined for holding Quaker meetings at his house."
