Biographical Sketch of Zebediah Williams

Zebediah (2), son of Zebediah (1) Williams, was born in 1675 at Deerfield. In 1692 the court ordered his grandmother, Patience Miller, “to take him and educate him or get him out (apprenticed) for an education.” Godfrey Nims, his stepfather, objected and the case was postponed. He was wounded by the Indians in 1695 and was allowed fifteen pounds by the general court for loss of time. The Indians captured him and his half-brother, John Nims, October 8, 1703, at Frary’s Bridge and carried them to Canada where he died April 12, 1706. His “house partly finished” was on a two-acre and a-half lot, near the south end. He married, May 2, 1700, Sarah Arms, daughter of William Arms, and she married (second), Samuel Jones. Children of Zebediah and Sarah Williams: Mary, born February 13, 1701, married Joseph Stebbins who removed to Northfield; Ebenezer, mentioned elsewhere.
