General Notes: Husband - Robert Taft


In 1667 he was one of the men of Braintree, Massachu­setts, who founded the new village of Mendon, and he was an influential citizen of the latter place. He served on the first board of select­men of Mendon. The Taft family soon be­came numerous in Worcester County, Massa­chusetts, and elsewhere, and records are im­perfect, but included here is a probable line of descent.
