    Notes 
    • EZRA POND, second son of Ezra, was born at Wrentham, March 26, 1721. He resided in the west parish (Franklin) until 1771 when he sold his farm there to Jesse Ware and removed to the new town of Hubbardston in Worcester county, where he purchased in the same year a farm of fifty acres of Isaac morse. He was one of the selectmen in 1774, 1780, 1781 and 1787, and served on many important committees during the Revolutionary war. As late as 1802 he bore the title of " Ensign."

      He married, at Wrentham, March 13, 1749-50, SARAH morse. She died March 19, 1772, in her 42d year. He married a second wife, about July 1774, MERCY BAKER, of Bellingham, who died April 1817. The records of baptisms of the older children do not appear. One Sarah Pond joined the church at Franklin, June 14, 1761, and the three children of Ezra Pond by his wife Sarah, born after that date, were baptized there. The Hubbardston records give no births of children to Ezra by his wife Mercy, but it is certain that there were at least two. He died at Hubbardston, Dec. 2, 1802. An inventory was presented in court, Jan. 31, 1804, naming a farm valued at $1600. September 3, 1804, the widow's dower was set off, the allowance signed by Joseph and Levi Pond, Azubah and Oliver Brown, and Elisha Woodward as agent for Sarah Phillips and Tryphena Newton.
