BOSTON: PRINTED BY ALFRED MUDGE & SON, NO. 24 FRANKLIN STREET. 1888.
The Dedication OF THE FORMER EDITION OF THIS GENEALOGICAL RECORD, BY ITS VENERABLE AUTHOR, TO THE NUMEROUS DESCENDANTS OF JOHN SPOFFORD AND ELIZABETH SCOTT, IS HEREBY MOST CORDIALLY RENEWED. The reviser, who entered upon the work at her father's special request,--his genealogical papers having been bequeathed to her for that purpose,--offers the labor thus expended as a tribute of filial devotion, on this, The One Hundredth Anniversary of the Birth of DR. JEREMIAH SPOFFORD, DECEMBER 8, 1887.
