  • Notes 
    • Benjamin was born during a cold, hard winter where his parents, along with
      other colonists, were trying to survive in their new surroundings on the
      Sagamoreship of Naumkeag--a densely wooded peninsula--later named Salem. In
      1638, Benjamin's father, John, built a two story frame house across the
      harbor from Salem. This area was later named Beverly. Benjamin grew up in
      this house, and it passed on to him at his father's death. He was
      independent of the rigid puritanical notions of the times.
