    Notes 
    • BANFIELD CAPRON, 2d, was born in. the year 1682-3, and died August 16, 1752, being about seventy years old. Some time before his death, a violent cancer broke out on his upper lip, which ate off a part of his face, and was the cause of his death. Before that time he was a capable man, and did an abundance of bard labor for a man of his age. He was of large stature, well-built, very stout, bold, resolute, and persevering, in all his business; of a light complexion, blue eyes, and reddish hair. He was a mason by trade, did much work at building chimneys in the neighboring towns and in Providence, and was considered in his days to be one of the best of workmen. He was a weaver, also, and did considerable at that when be was not employed in other business. In those days men did the greatest part of the weaving he married Hannah Jencks, daughter of Nathaniel Jencks, of Pawtucket, and granddaughter of Joseph Jencks, who was the first settler in that place. They had twelve children, -six sons and six daughters, whose names were Nathaniel, Charles, Philip, Benjamin, Jonathan, and Oliver, Hannah, Betsey, Leah, Lydia, Sarah, and Elizabeth.
      I have been informed by a number of old people, who were near neighbors to my grandfather and his family, that they were very smart, active and handsome, while living, but a great part of them, like the flowers of a garden, young, lovely, beautiful and gay in the morning and before noon, wither, droop and die.
