WILLIAM HASKELL was a native of Marblehead, and supposed to be a descendant of Mark Haskell, of Beverly; b. 1726, d. in Lynn, Nov. 9,1809, aged 83 years. He was a shipwright, and pursued that occupation the greater part of his life, when, till the infirmities of age prevented, he took up the business of boating. It is remarked, by Mr. John White, of Marblehead, one of the oldest living representatives of that family, that Mr. Haskell was always considered to be a cousin to his grandfather, John White, which, if true, would make him grandson to Mark Haskell who married Charity Pitman. He had often heard him spoken of by his father, as “old uncle Bill.” He removed to Lynn about 1803, when, Dec. 5, of that year, he and his wife Ann sold to Peter Colman, of Marblehead, laborer, their one-fifth part of a dwelling house and land under it, near the powder house in Marblehead, bounded S. on the way to the Ferry, NW. on the late Azor Orne, and N. on Jesse Blanchard, with their rights in the estate of their late father, Peter Colman. Witnessed by James Gardner and Samuel Alley, Jr. Mr. William Haskell married Ann, dau. of Peter and Ann Colman, of Marblehead.
