" Hearing that the savages might burn his home and kill his family, 
he moved them to Taunton, a village about seven miles distant, 
where they remained for some time. One day, taking his dog with 
him, he went to his home to get some article, a cheese hoop the 
story says, and had started to return when he became aware that 
some Indians were following him. He climbed a tree whose 
branches completely hid him and the Indians passed without seeing 
him, but his dog began to bark and the Indians came back, found 
him and shot him in the tree." Edward was one of the original pur-
