Of his eight children, seven of whom where sons, the second, Daniel X of who we find the earliest mention among the Gages of that part of "Old Rowley, " which is now Bradford, MA.
We learn there from Bradford town, records that he married Sarah Kimball. (The name Kimball figures all through the Gage genealogy as many Kimballs married Gages.) Daniel married Sarah Kimball on 3 May, 1675 and died November 8th, 1705. He had eight children, with three sons of whom Daniel XI, the oldest born 12 Mar 1675 married Martha Burbank, 9 Mar 1697
and about that time settled in the extreme northwest part of Bradford, on the banks of the Merrimac, establishing the well know "Gages on Upper Ferry" on the then main road to Methuen, where the grotesque "Gage House" was built and afterward enlarged, stood in dilapidation, the oldest in the town in 1900. Martha died there 8 Sep 1741 and he died 14 Mar 1747.
