Did Stephen King’s ancestor suffer ‘death by canoe oar!’?

This source doesn’t give any more info on the incident and charges, but does depict the Nason family as being involved in a variety of troubles. For instance, it claims that Richard’s wife, Sarah, “may have been a daughter of John Baker, who was fined in 1645 for beating [Richard Nason] black and blue,” according to New Hampshire court records.
