      832. Col. Joseph Gerrish, born March 20, 1681/82 in Newbury, MA; died January 10, 1765 in Newbury, MA. He was the son of 1664. Moses Greenleafe Gerrish and 1665. Jane Sewall. He married 833. Mary Little February 26, 1703/04 in Newbury, MA.

      833. Mary Little, born January 13, 1685/86 in Newbury, Essex Co., MA; died June 1761 in Newbury, Essex Co., MA. She was the daughter of 1666. Moses Littell and 1667. Lydia Coffin.

Notes for Col. Joseph Gerrish:
- Three Other Children died as infants. Notes on Children: Moses ran a Ferry in Newburyport in 1736. Joseph was elected several times as Newbury representative to the general Court and was involved in the separation of Newburyport and the debates leading up to the revolution.

- Says the Rev. Jacob Little "Col. Joseph Gerrish had such muscular power, that he swam the Merrimack River, near its mouth, every year until he was past 70. The weight of four of his children was 1,200 Ibs. "

- His house was located on Orchard Street in Byfield and is still standing near the Great Meadows Farm. I believe this was also where his grandfather William Gerrish lived, although not in the present house. It is said there is a large bolder on the property, the "Gerrish Rock". I have not yet located it.

- Both Joseph Gerrish (03/20/1681/2 - 01/10/1765) and his wife Mary Little (01/13/1685/6 - 06/DD/1761) are buried in the Walnut Hill Cemetery on Bachellor Street in West Newbury. There are many Bartletts buried here as well.

- His father Moses Gerrish (05/09/1656 - 12/04/1694) married Jane Sewall (10/25/1659 - 01/29/1716/7) the daughter of Henry Sewall (1614 - 05/16/1700) and Jane Dummer (1628 - 01/13/1700/01) and sister of Samuel Sewall. Samuel Sewall often mentions Colonel Joseph Gerrish and visiting at his home in Newbury. Samuel describes Joseph at age 13 driving Joseph' grandmother (Jane Dummer Sewall) to Boston in a carriage. Jane Dummer Sewall is a cousin of the Governor Dummer for whom Governor Dummer Academy in Byfield is named.

- An account could be written of Joseph's sons Joseph, Samuel, and Jacob that might make them sound like they one the Revolution single handedly as all commanded regiments. However, Jacob rather tarnished the family name being court martialed for having been found asleep in a haystack during the Battle of Bunker Hill. An appeals court later acquitted him.
