John Rider

1Rachel E. Barclay, John3 Rider of Plymouth, Mass., The American Genealogist Vol. 36, p. 193-196 (Oct 1960).
"John3 Rider of Plymouth, Mass., son of Samuel2 Rider and Sarah2 Bartlett (Robert1) was born there about 1664. There is no birth record, but the approximate year is obtained from his deposition made 20 March 1689/90 aged 26 years or thereabouts [Plym. Scrapbook, p. 186]. That he is the son of Samuel2 we know from Samuel's will dated 7 April 1714: "As to my sons, John, Samuel and Benjamin and my daughter Mercy, I have done competently for them in my lifetime." There is also a deed wherein John3 Rider conveys to John Barnes, among other parcels "1/8 part of ye undivided swamp in said 5th Lot of Cedar Swamp, belonging to the Share which I bought of my father Samuel Rider deceased," dated 9 Sept. 1718 [Ply. Co. Deeds, 14:83].
John3 Rider married first, about 1692, Hannah Barnes daughter of Jonathan2 and Elizabeth (Hedge) Barnes. On 26 Feb. 1692, "John Rider, a child of the church, was publickly called before the church, & laid under Admonition, for . . . sin . . . committed with Hannah Barnes, who afterwards was his wife" [Ply. Church Rec. p. 275]. Jonathan Barnes' will dated 27 June 1714 mentions "the three of my children of my daughter Hannah deceased, viz. Mercy, Samuel and Ebenezer Rider" (The Mayflower Desc. 12:256]. Hannah (Barnes) Rider Died 17 jan. 1703 according to the Plymouth Vital Records. John3 and Hannah (Barnes) Rider had the following children recorded in Plymouth:
i. Sarah4, b. Dec. 1694; lived 4 years 5 months.

iii. Samuel, b. 15 Nov. 1698; d. before 1 Mar. 1762 when administration on his estate was granted to his son Samuel4 Rider (Ply. Probate, 17:64). He m. Plymouth 2 Nov. 1722 Mary4 Silvester, dau. of Joseph and Hannah (Bartlett) Silvester, b. Plymouth 29 Sept. 1697, d. Middleboro 26 Feb. 1769 (Rev. Backus' Death Rec. Middleboro). By deed dated 25 Apr. 1757, Samuel4 Rider and wife Mary sold to James Holmes and Joseph Silvester their "interest in the estate of honored father Joseph Silvester" (Ply. Co. Deeds, 43:269).
iv. John, b. Oct. 1700' lived 3 years 9 months.
v. Ebenezer, b. 17 Nov. 1702; d. before 13 mar. 1750, when inventory of his estate was taken (Ply. Probate, 12:273); m. Plymouth 16 Mar. 1725/6 Thankful Silvester, b. Plymouth 21 Sept. 1703, d. Plymouth 5 June 1773 (Ply. Ch. Rec. 402). By deed dated 28 Apr. 1759 Thankful Rider, widow, sold to Joseph Silvester "all right to estate of father Joseph Silvester" (Ply. Co. Deeds, 45:171).

John3 Rider married second, between 17 Jan. 1703 and 20 March 1707, Mary ------, born about 1685, died a widow 17 Dec. 1766 at 81, according to Plymouth Church Records, p. 396. By this marriage he had the following children recorded at Plymouth:
vi. Hannah, b. 20 Mar. 1707; d. before 6 July 1736 when her father's estate was divided; m. Plymouth 17 March 1725/6 William Foster of Sandwich, son of Joseph and Rachel (Bassett) Foster of Sandwich, b. there the last day of March 1702, d. before 11 Mar. 1736 when guardianship of his children was given to Thomas Foster of Plymouth (Ply. Probate, 7:187-8).
vii. John, b. 26 Mar. 1709; d. Plymouth 11 Mar. 1756 at 47 "wanting 4 days"; m. Plymouth 5 Dec. 1734 Mary Drew, dau. of Lemuel2 and hannah (Barnes) Drew, b. Plymouth 19 Oct. 1716, d. there 24 Aug. 1785 ae. 60-10-25. In the division of her father's estate 13 Apr. 1748 she is called Mary, wife of John Rider (Ply. Probate 11:1). Both are interred on Burial Hill.
viii. Sarah, b. 25 Dec. 1712; m. Plymouth 19 Dec. 1728 Jonathan Freeman, son of Jonathan and Mercy (Bradford) Freeman, b. Harwich 26 Mar. 1709/10, d. between 12 Jan. 1743 and 13 July 1748 (Ply. Probate, 11:52). he left his whole estate both real and personal to wife Sarah. No children for this couple have been found. They were living in Halifax, Mass., at the time of his derath. There are no recorded deeds where the widow sold any of the property left her, but a search of the deeds given by Jonathan would indicate that all of his holdings had been disposed of before he died. There is no death record nor probate for Sarah Freeman. It is probable that she returned to Plymouth after the death of her first husband, for her widowed mother was still living there, and that she was the "Mrs. Sarah Freeman of Plymouth" who married there, 31 jan. 1750/1, Edward Curtis of Stoughton. A study of the records reveals no other Sarah Freeman who might have married Edward Curtis, who was the son of Moses and Dorothy (Ashby) Curtis, b. Braintree, Mass., 30 Nov. 1707. There are no children seen by this second marriage and there are no deeds disposing of any of her husband's estate. Edward Curtis disappears from Stoughton records after 1765.
