[5070] "The Dodge Family of Essex County, Mass."
Joseph Thompson Dodge
NEHGR v46 p383 (Oct 1892)
"It is well known that William Dodge came to this country from England in the ship
Lion's Whelp, which sailed from Gravesend 25th April, and from the Isle of Wight
11th May, 1629, and landed at Salem, Mass., 29th June, 1629. This William Dodge
was commended to Gov. Endicott as a "skillful and painful husbandman, with the
request that he might have charge of a team of horses..."
"A deposition of William Dodge, made in February, 1768-9, says, "aged about 70
years." Another deposition made by the same, 28th Sept. 1680, says, "aged about
76 years." The latter is believed to be the more correct. Hence, his birth may have
been as early as 1604..."
"The name of his wife is not known. It has been called Elizabeth Haskell; but Elizabeth
Haskell was wife of "Coker" William, of which there are several proofs. Farmer William
died between 1685 and 1692, as shown by deeds of land."

"William died between 1685 and 1692, as disclosed by deeds, and probably close to the
former date for about that time references to his son William omit the word "junior". His
wife, undoubtedly, died earlier than he."
