Eleazer Partridge (1693-1776)

Eleazer Partridge was born to Eleazer Partridge and Elizabeth Smith in Medfield, Massachusetts, March 7, 1693. He settled in that portion of Dedham, Massachusetts, which, in 1724, became Walpole, Massachusetts. Of the births of his children, three are recorded in Medfield, three in Dedham, and that of the youngest in Walpole. He married twice: first, April 11, 1715, Sarah Taylor, who died Feb., 1758; and second, Nov. 20, 1759, Ruth Ware, born in Wrentham, Massachusetts, Oct. 14, 1720, daughter of Ebenezer and Bethia Ware. He died in 1776, and his will, proved May 6, 1776, mentions his wife Ruth; sons Elisha and Henry; and daughters Sarah Blanchard and Elizabeth Morse [1]Suffolk Co; Prob. Rec, vol. lxxv., p. 161.

  2. Eleazer Partridge, born Nov. 17, 1717; died May 6, 1752; married Nov. 25, 1741, Jemima Clark. She married (2) Oct. 9, 1755, John Fisher of Wrentham, Massachusetts. No children.
