Moses Perley1

b. June 12, 1709, d. October 23, 1793
  • Reference: 3846cbe
  • THIS LISTING HAS NOT YET BEEN AUDITED, AND MAY NOT BE ACCURATE; A.
  • Moses Perley was baptized on June 12, 1709 in Bradford, Massachusetts.2
  • He was the son of Jacob Perley and Lydia Peabody.1
  • Moses married Hannah Frye on February 7, 1739/40.2
  • Mr. Perley inherited the homestead and made it his home — the southern slope of old Baldpate, the deep soil around the lake and a commanding view of its placid waters. He gave his whole attention to farming and seems to have cared little for military or town affairs. He was hogreeve in 1752, 1756, 1774 and 1770; and was on a committee to arrange the school districts of the town in 1765. In 1773 he built and fenced the road from the town line, by his house, to the brook at the northeast. Apr 1741, he united with the First Church.2
  • Moses died on October 23, 1793 at age 84. His will is dated 15 Nov 1788; was witnessed by Aaron Wood, William Perley and Daniel Gould, neighbors; proved 5 Nov 1793; its executors were his sons Nathan and Eliphalet, to whom he devised all his real estate, and who shortly after his death erected two dwellings and razed the old one. His inventory, amounting to £1474 19s., was made 3 Jan 1794, by Thomas Perley, Jr., Jonathan Wood, and David Mighill, and mentions: 1 chaise, 2 three- year-old steers, 2 oxen, 8 cows, 2 two-year-old steers, l6 sheep and lambs, 3 swine, "Bible and other books 24s.", 1 "time-piece", 2 looking-glasses, 22 barrels cider, "loom, several wheels, etc."2
  • He was buried in Harmony Cemetery, East Boxford, Massachusetts, where one stone is broken down and the other has the following inscription:

  • Mother: Lydia Perley1 b. May 13, 1741, d. August 10, 1804
  • THIS LISTING HAS NOT YET BEEN AUDITED, AND MAY NOT BE ACCURATE; A.
  • Moses Perley was born on June 5, 1779 in the part of Rowley now called Millwood, Massachusetts.2
  • He was the son of John Perley and Lydia Perley.1
  • His son writes: "My father remained at home till his majority, when he hired out as a farm laborer with a neighbor. After a few years, his brothers having homes of their own, and his father being alone, he returned and assisted in carrying on the farm. At the age of forty he married, but remained with his father till the latter's death, when the farm was divided among the heirs. My father then bought the farm where I now live and what we are pleased to call the 'old homestead.' It is situated in the northeastern part of Rowley near the Newbury line. My mother had lived here but a few years when she died. Three years after her death, my father married again, and thus the remainder of his life was greatly embittered for nearly twenty-five years. The last eight years of his life were spent in Newbury. My father was a very snug, shrewd, calculating man, as are the Perleys generally with but few exceptions. By his frugality and trading in cattle he succeeded in accumulating considerable property, which was considerably diminished at the time of his death by his second wife's prodigality. He was a man of temperate habits, as were also his brothers, and are the Perleys in general. I think I never heard him utter a profane word. He always showed his respect for religion, and was charitable toward those who differed with him in religious belief. It is said he walked from some point in Maine to Rowley, in one day, a distance of eighty miles."3
  • Moses married Sarah Morse on April 4, 1822 in Rowley, Massachusetts.3
  • Moses married Nancy Greenough on April 23, 1835 as his second wife, and her second husband.3
  • Moses died on May 24, 1857 in Newbury, Massachusetts, at age 77.3
