The mention of the 'first three children' in western MA vs. Melvin's location came from the Worchester records.

I've never been to the North East area either, but Dedham is located in Norfolk Co, MA.Norfolk Co is inbetween Worcester and Plymouth.
Of interest is that Melvin's daughter, Lavina was born 1814 in Dedham, so this sustantiates this, tho it's possiblethey later moved to the location you mentioned for a period of time?:
