'NEHEMIAH2 (Edward1), son of Edward and Prudence Clapp, was born about September, 1646. He married, April, 1678, Sarah Leavit (now Leavitt) daughter of John Leavitt one of the early settlers of Hingham; he lived in Hingham awhile, but not long. His wife owned the covenant in Dorchester the 29th of the fifth month, 1677, and on the 26th of the sixth month (Aug. 26), 1682, Nehemiah and his wife were dismissed from the Church in Hingham, and joined the Church in Dorchester. He died April 2, 1684, aged 38 years. After her husband's death and previous to November 30, 1689, Sarah married Samuel Howe, of Sudbury. Her father was a tailor by trade, and a great landholder ; he, in connection with Capt. Joshua Hobart, Lieut. John Smith and Nathaniel Baker, bought a tract of land beyond Providence, fifteen miles square, called by the Indians Twanckoc; also with Hobart and Smith a piece of land six miles square, called "Pennycooke ;" he owned a quarter of the former, and a third of the latter purchase.'

DWS: from 'The Clapp Memorial Record of the CLAPP FAMILY IN AMERICA' by Ebenezer Clapp - compiler, David Clapp & Son - publisher Boston 1876:
'Ezra,3 b. Jau. 29, 1674. He was no doubt the one of that name who d. April 10, 1691. It is supposed he lived in Dorchester at the time, as his death is noted upon the records of this town.
His age not appearing is probably the reason for the mistake alluded to in John Farmer's Genealogical Register, that he was the son of Deacon Edward, instead of his grandson ; and, in that case, the family name was extinct in that branch.'


Edward Clapp

DWS: from 'The Clapp Memorial Record of the CLAPP FAMILY IN AMERICA' by Ebenezer Clapp - compiler, David Clapp & Son - publisher Boston 1876:
EDWARD3, (Nehemiah, 2 Edward1 ), son of Nehemiah and Sarah (Leavitt) Clapp, and his second son of that name, was born Dec. 9, 1680, and died Dec. 3, 1733. He married Mary Clark, of Boston, Nov. 11, 1703. I suppose he lived in Dorchester until 1722, and then removed to Sudbury, Mass. I think he married a second wife while he lived iu Dorchester, whose christian name was Abigail. He was probably rather a shiftless man; he had a good estate left him, which he disposed of before he removed to Sudbury. In 1722, he enlisted in Captain Edward Ward's Company, and was in an expedition against the Indians. No account can be found of his children, besides two daughters, who finished the name of Deacon Edward's descendants in the line of his son Nehemiah. He died in Sudbury, Dec. 3, 1733.
