The Rice Genealogical Register has all of Simon and Thankful's children born at Bolton. However, the first two children were born before Bolton was set off as a town, and so their births were naturally recorded at Lancaster.2 {p64}

    Children of Thankful HOUGHTON and Simon WHITCOMB:

She died 23 Nov 1811, aged 66y at Winchendon, MA (under the name McElwain)234. Note that the Rice Gen'l Register has confused this Rebecca, the daughter of Simon Whitcomb, with a different Rebecca born the same year to John Whitcomb, also in Bolton. The other Rebecca is the one who married Calvin Greenleaf. This one married James McElwain instead.

She married James MCELWAIN 10 Oct 1769 at Bolton, MA119. He was born 4 Nov 1744 at Bolton119, died 24 Nov 1820, aged 76y at Winchendon, MA234, was buried at Winchendon, in Center Cemetery234, son of Andrew MCELWAIN and Hezadiah.

She married Nathaniel SAWYER 19 Mar 1734/35 at Lancaster, performed by Joseph Wilder, Esq53 {p26},2 {13, 50}. He was born about 1707 at probably Lancaster, MA48, son of Nathaniel SAWYER and Mary.

    Children of Mary HOUGHTON and Nathaniel SAWYER:

Phineas CARTER and Mary SAWYER declared their intention to marry 24 Oct 1757 at Lancaster, MA53 {p84}.
iii
Elizabeth SAWYER [QQ15961], born 5 Jul 1741 at Lancaster53 {p69},2 {p50}. She died 3 Oct 1742 at Lancaster53 {p158}. The identification of this Elizabeth's death record is problematic, since the date is after both the birth and baptism of the next sibling, who was also named Elizabeth. One possibility is that the death date is wrong.
iv
Elizabeth SAWYER [QQ15962], born 24 Jul 1742 at Lancaster53 {p69},2 {p50},14 {p32}. She died 15 Jan 1813, aged 70y (under the name Nichols)56. She was buried at Springfield, VT, in Summer Hill Cemetery56. The records of her birth, baptism, marriage intention, marriage, and death all call her Eliza or Elizabeth. Your authors have not found any primary records that use the name Relief. The mistaken assertion in the Rice Gen'l Register that she was named Relief is apparently based on a misreading of her gravestone, which describes her as "Elizabeth Relict of Levi".56

She married Levi NICHOLS 29 Nov 1759 at Lancaster, MA, both of Lancaster53 {p87},2 {p50}. He was born in 173914 {p32}. They declared their intention to marry 15 Sep 1759 at Lancaster53 {p88}.

He married Sarah HOUGHTON 4 Feb 1740, but this date is clearly wrong2 {p13}. She was born about 1722 in probably Massachusetts.
