Gaustad, Edwin S., A Documentary History of Religion in America to the Civil War (Eerdmans, Grand Rapids, MI, 1982):

Most interesting for its diversity; less so for depth in any particular area. Contains a very wide range of short source documents, accompanied by explanatory text, on all facets of American religion, from a little bit on the religions of certain American Indian tribes, to a bit more of European pre-settlement context. Beyond this point, it focuses on the English colonies, and then the United States, but goes into many nooks and crannies, such as the Oneida community with its "complex marriage", early African-American Methodism, spiritualism, Millerism, etc. At the end of each chapter are fairly thorough guides to further reading.

Greven, Philip J., Four generations : population, land, and family in colonial Andover, Massachusetts, (Ithaca, N.Y. : Cornell University Press, 1972)

Greven's first work.  One fascinating thing it identified about the early growth of New England was that, in a sparsely settled area, effectively quarantined from European diseases, and without an excess of mosquitoes, the typical pattern of parents losing half their children to disease did not apply, and so, from of quite a small initial immigration, there was a great population explosion, and within a few generations, sons of New England had to migrate to other parts of the country to put down roots.

Greven, Philip J., The Protestant temperament : patterns of child-rearing, religious experience, and the self in early America, (New York : Knopf, 1977)

Greven, Philip J., Spare the child : the religious roots of punishment and the psychological impact of physical abuse, (New York : Knopf /Random House, 1991)

 It seems that after (or well into) a distinguished career as a historian, studying matters related to childrearing, Prof Greven became an advocate against child abuse.  When I met him presenting at a series in Newark, he gave me his card on behalf of an organization for that purpose
