Who lived to be one hundred and eight years old; was born in New York in 1684; and died in Philadelphia in 1792. He was twice married, and had born to him, before his death, twenty-five children, sixty-six grandchildren, thirty-eight great grandchildren, and three great great grandchildren, in all one hundred and thirty-two, of whom eighty-seven survived him. He never had the headache, and considered himself in the prime at sixty. He was fond of hunting and fishing, and until his eighty-first year, carried a heavy English musket in his hunting excursions. Was a quiet, temperate, hard working man; always cheerful and good humored. Retained the use of his limbs, and all his senses, to the last. In the early part of his life, he was out against the Indians. He followed a sea-faring life for thirty years, and was lieutenant of a privateer which sailed from Barbadoes in Queen Anne's Wars. . . . [P. 23.]
