    Notes 
    • The Bellingham Town Clerk possesses the Samuel Wight Diary which lists the death record of Eli Pond "of Franklin." Eli & Huldah had twelve children according to "Descendants of John Hill." He is described in this source as Eli POND of Holliston, Medway, Bellingham and Franklin. Eli POND was a sadler and first settled at Medway. In 1767 he bought an estate at Holliston of Joseph HILL, and seems to have resided there a short time; in 1769 he bought land in Medway of Amos ELLIS and returned to that town. In 1778 he sold his homestead of eight acres, with the house in which he was then living, to Philemon Metcalf, and removed to Bellingham. He lived there four or five years and then settled at Franklin where he resided until his death. Administration on his estate was granted to his son Eli, 6 July 1802. The inventory showed only $90.
