    NOTES: BLN believes Benjamin progenitor of the Deer Isle Lufkins.
    Thomas came to Gloucester about 1674. In 1680 he had a great piece of land above Deacon Haskell's sawmill; and, in later years, lots in other places.
    Babson supplements the list of children thus; "Besides these, there was probably a Thomas, born before the removal to Gloucester, who had a grant of land in 1690." BLN also believes that the Thomas, twin to Abigail, noted in the court record to be an error.
