I own all of the published vital records for Plymouth County towns, and was
not able to find an intention or marriage record in nearby towns. A search
on the LDS site did not disclose any record anywhere in Massachusetts.

found in every town library in the state. Outside of the state they are not
so easy to come by, but can be purchased on CD-ROM for about $200.00.

No - I am not familiar with that family.
