Their son. Capt. Thomas, m. in Hingham. for his third w. Oct. 10, 1719, Sarah, dau. of Francis and Mary Horswell. Benjamin was known as "Captain," and afterwards as "Colonel." He was the distinguished hero of the Indian Wars, and commanded the party by which King Philip was slain. (See WINDSOR`S "Duxbury," and BARRY`S "Hanover.") Some have thought Col. Benjamin was a nephew of Richard; but this seems somewhat improbable from the fact that the date of his m., Dec. 26, 1667, was recorded in Hingham by Rev. Peter Hobart, who, prob. would not have entered in his diary a marriage occurring in another town, had not one at least of the parties m. been closely connected with those of the name in Hingham.

From "Mayflower" by Nathaniel Philbrick:
Jeffrey, an Indian Benjamin liked, spoke English and lived with the Church`s the rest of his life.
The King Philip`s War ended in 1676 but from 1689 - 1704 Church led five expeditions against French and Indians in Maine. In 1702 Queen Anne`s War broke out. By now Church was so fat he wobbled and turned to publishing. In 1716, with son, Thomas, he published "Entertaining Passages Relating to Philip`s War"
