    Notes:

    Excerpt from "Certain Comeoverers"; In 1798, Peter Crapo purchased from Thomas Russell a farm of ninety acres extending from Buzzard's Bay westerly to the Bakertown Road half way between the road from Smith's Neck to Russell's Mills and Macomber's Corner, near the "Gulf Road." It may be that Jesse was sent by his father to cut the hay off the salt meadows and perhaps he boarded with Henry Howland. If so he must have found the accommodations somewhat limited in a little farm house with fifteen children more or less. However it happened, he picked out Phebe Howland as his helpmeet, and she proved, in deed, his better half.
    After they were married they lived for a time with Jesse's father, Peter Crapo, in Freetown near the Dartmouth line, or in Dartmouth near the Freetown line, I know not which. It was there that your great grandfather Henry Howland Crapo was born, May 24, 1804. Evidently the plan arranged for the newly married pair was that they should acquire a farm on the Rockadunda Road not far from the bride's birthplace. Soon after the marriage the work on the new home must have commenced. It was very soon after 1804 that Jesse Crapo and his wife with their little son Henry Howland moved into the new house. The deed of the property from Barnabas and William Sherman to Peter Crapo was given in 1807, and not recorded until 1826. Perhaps Jesse Crapo with the aid of his father and his brothers and sisters did not finally pay for his property until 1807. It seems clear, however, that he was living on the Rockadunda farm soon after 1804. In 1822, he purchased of Silas Kirby five acres adjoining. In 1830, he purchased of Reuben Kelley seven acres adjoining. He also owned the "Barbary Mash" purchased of Barbary Russell, and an undivided fourth part of the marsh at the "Great Meadows" which his father had left to him and his brothers Charles, Reuben, and Abiel.
    Jesse Crapo was a kindly, lovable man, whose gentle nature and recognized rectitude led him to be chosen on several occasions as an arbitrator in the disputes of the neighborhood. In him the restless ambition which distinguished his father and his great grandfather lay dormant, in order, perhaps, that he might transmit it in redoubled intensity to his eldest son. It is characteristic of him that he should have been a private in the militia company of which his son, who had not reached his majority, was the Captain. Hard, unremitting labor brought from the farm a mere subsistence. He would not, indeed, have been called poor as Dartmouth farmers went. It was a good sized farm with considerable land in tillage. He had stock, and doubtless a horse and chaise. The farm buildings were substantial. The dwelling house unusually ample and comfortable for its day. Yet surplus money and the opportunities and luxuries which money may bring were never within his achievement. He died January 11, 1831, in the fiftieth year of his age. Just before he passed away he asked to have your grandfather, William Wallace Crapo, who was a baby of eight months, placed on his bed beside him.

    Jesse married Phoebe HOWLAND Between 23 Apr and 10 Jul 1803. Phoebe (daughter of Henry HOWLAND and Rhoda CHASE) was born 29 Mar 1785, Dartmouth, Bristol County, Massachusetts; died 22 Dec 1870, Dartmouth, Bristol County, Massachusetts. [Group Sheet]
