xxx He married (1) on 20 December 1649 Rebecca Bartlett, daughter of Robert Bartlett and his wife Mary Warren (daughter of Richard Warren); (2) 15 July 1658 Mary Faunce, daughter of John Faunce; and (3) 25 January 1665/66 Mary Shelley (PCR 8:8, 21, 26). In the settlement of his estate, dated 9 September 1691, his widow is Mary Harlow, and his surviving children are sons Samuel, William, Nathaniel, and Benjamin, and seven unnamed daughters (MD 12:195). On 12 April 1667 Sgt. William Harlow made an agreement with Secretary Nathaniel Morton and his wife Lydia to put out his son Nathaniel Harlow, near two and one-half years old, with the Mortons until he was twenty-one (PCR 5:10). The agreement between Harlow and Morton showed that the Mortons "desired" the child, and it provided that in case Nathaniel Morton died before the child was seven years old, William Harlow would pay £10 to Lydia Morton to help in the maintenance of the child. Nathaniel Morton in his 1685 will gave a young cow and calf to his kinsman Nathaniel Harlow, son of William, and requested his loving kinsman Sgt. William Harlow to be a supervisor of his will (Ply. Colony LR 5:350). The kinship between Harlow and Morton would have been through Harlow's second wife, Mary Faunce, whose mother, Patience Morton, was a sister of Nathaniel Morton, and thus Nathaniel Harlow would have been Nathaniel Morton's nephew.
