      From “Forbes and Forbush Genealogy The Descendants of Daniel Furbush” by Frederick Clifton Pierce:
      “Born in Cambridge, Mass March 20, 1664, married Dorthy Pray of Braintree, born 1668. Mrs. Furbush was captured by the Indians, but returned and had children. In 1722 the house of Daniel Furbush at Kittery, Maine was made defensible. That is, being on the frontier, it was made a garison.
      “May 10, 1734, Daniel Furbush Senior is one of the persons not allowed to remain in Kittery, Maine by the selectmen, he having embrassed the Quaker faith, to which at that time there was great opposition.
      “The first meeting house set up by the friends, or Quakers, was built in that portion of Kittery, Maine, afterwards incorporated as Eliot, in 1730.
      “In 1696, Daniel Ffarbish was fined 5s fishing on Sunday, in the river at Kittery, Maine. The fine and 1s for fees was given to the poor.
      “Daniel Furbush of Kittery, Maine married Dorothy Pray, daughter of John Pray, of Braintree, Mass., who died in July 1699. He died February 1745. Resided in Kittery, Maine.”

      From “The Descendants of William Furbish/Furbush of Kittery, Maine” by Bob Scott:
      “Daniel Furbish was born about 1665 at Kittery, York Co., ME. He was the son of William Furbish and Rebecca _____. Daniel died before 11 Jan 1745 at Kittery, York, Maine. He married Dorothy Pray about 1689 at Kittery, York, Maine. She was born about 1668 at Braintree, Norfolk Co., MA., the daughter of John Pray and Joanna Downam.

      “Daniel was the eldest son of William Furbish and was probably born soon after his father came to Kittery on or about 1664. He later witnessed two deeds when his father bought the Whittam land in 1687 and 1688. Daniel inherited the home farm and lived on it all of his days. he died before 11 Ja. 1745 and his widow was the administratix of his estate. He had given the greater part of his estate to his children some years before.

      “In later life he became a Quaker and his name is on a list of those allowed in the town in 1734 and also in 1737. It is not known if his wife Dorothy was also a Quaker. She was a member of the Berwick Church and all of their children were baptized there. The Indians captured Dorothy Furbish and one child in her home in Kittery. They killed and burnt the child. Daniel subsequently bought her back from the Indians.

      “NOTE: The information contained in “The Descendants of Daniel Forbush” by Frederick Clifton Pierce of Chicago, Illinois, published in 1892 regarding Daniel Furbish is erroneous and is refuted by Col. Banks in his “Old Eliot” series.”
