      1. From Mathewson Gazette, Oct. 1983, Pg.25: "... He married Deliverance Malavery, Nov. 17, 1648, whom he obtained in the following manner: Having occasion to go to Boston, then the nearest place of trade to purchase groceries, he passed on his way a boiling spring, near a cottage, and being very dry, applied at the house for some water; a young woman came out with a pitcher, like Rebecca of old, and gave him to drink. Returning home, he happened to be again dry at the same place, called, and was supplied. Thus acquaintance thus providentially commenced, ripened into marriage some year or two afterwards."[matt3.FTW]
