PREFACE. 



On petition received from the Rumford Historical Association, the City 
Council of Woburn, in May, 1890, passed the following vote : — 

" Ordered, That the Mayor be and hereby is authorized to have printed twenty-five hun- 
dred copies of his manuscript record of deaths, and that the expense therefor be paid out of 
the Miscellaneous Department." 

And it is further 

" Ordered, That the primed copies he deposited with the City Treasurer, -who shall dis- 
pose of them to any and all persons for twenty-five cents a copy, and all sums received by 
him therefor shall he placed to the credit of the Miscellaneous Department." 

In pursuance of this vote the following pages are now presented to the 
public. In order to add to and perfect the record, I engaged Miss J. 
Gertrude Menard to assist me in comparing it with the data to be found 
on the gravestones in both the Salem Street and Calvary Cemeteries. 
Our comparison has resulted in the addition of over four hundred names 
to the recorded list, and in the discovery of a number of discrepancies 
between the clerk's records and those chiselled on the gravestones. 
These additions and corrections have been inserted in their proper chron- 
ological place, and for the purpose of distinguishing them from the town 
clerk's records, the word " Gravestone" has been added to each addi- 
tional or corrected entry. 

In order still further to complete the Woburn record of deaths and to 
preserve for all time memorials which are slowly but surely passing out 
of existence, — memorials, too, the most sacred and valuable of all which 
have been left to us of the fathers, — I have added as an appendix to the 
record of deaths a transcript of the epitaphs to be found In the First and 
Second Burying-Grounds. For this transcript I am indebted to my 
friend, Mr. William K. Cutter, whose copy of the epitaphs in the First or 
Park Street Burying-Ground was made almost a quarter of a century ago. 
The changes and removals which have taken place in the Second or 
Montvale Avenue Burying-Ground since Mr. Cutter revised Mr. Nathan 
Wyman's manuscript list, in 1870, have somewhat disarranged the chrono- 
logical order which was then prepared. As, however, the epitaphs of each 
yard are separately indexed, this slight disarrangement will not interfere 
with the value of the list for reference. 

The recent visits which I have made to the several graveyards in this 
city, and the inspection of many of their half-obliterated monuments and 



4: PREFACE. 

crumbling gravestones have brought forcibly to my mind the tmth of 
the lines, — 

"Monuments themselves memorials need." 

We spend large sums of money to perpetuate on polished marble the 
lineage and virtues of a departed friend ; yet it is only a question of time 
when this single record will become obliterated and forever lost. How 
important it is then to have those memorials duplicated by being spread 
on the printed sheet, thus making a record and the only record which can. 
defy " the tooth of time " !

* Nahum Sargeant, a graduate of Dartmouth College, 1784, and a brother of Rev. Samuel 
Sargeant, of Woburn, died while on a visit at Chelsea, Mass., Oct. 7, 1792, aged thirty-four 
years. He was minister at Reading, Vt., from 1787 to time of death. He preached in 
^W'obum occasionally, and his first appearance here as a preacher was on Sunday, Oct. 
31, 1784, when, in the words of Esquire Samuel Thompson's memoranda, " Mr. Sargeant's 
brother preached." He also preached on June 5, 1785, when he was described by the above 
authority as "Mr. Sargeant, the younger." Mention is made of his preaching for his brother, 
in Woburn, in 1786, 1787, 1789, and 1791. In September, 1786, Mr. Samuel Sargeant was sick 
with a fever, and on Sept. 3 there was on that account " no preaching "; but on other Sab- 
baths of that month, and in October, Mr. Nahum Sargeant preached for him. In the latter 
part of November, 1787, the Rev. Samuel Sargeant was absent on a journey to assist in the 
ordination of his brother Nahum at Reading, Vt., and there preached the sermon for the 
day. This sermon was published and a copy is preserved in the Woburn I'ublic Library. 
Mr. Nahum Sargeant died of the small-pox, in October, 1792, his death being noted in S. 
Thompson's lists. At the time of his death the disease of small-pox was prevalent in this 
vicinity. The copy of the above sermon was originally the property of the Rev. Mr. Mar- 
rett. The following is its title : "A sermon delivered at the introduction of the Rev. Nahum ' 
Sargeant to the pastoral care of the church ahd congregation in Reading [Vermont] , Nov. 
23,1787; by his brother Samuel Sargeant, A. M., pastor of the FirstChurch in Woburn. —

"NOTES FOU A CONCISE HISTORY OF WOBURN." 



By WILLIAM R. CUTTER. 

Ancient Public Burial-Grounds. — In Wobui'n proper there are two 
ancient public burial-grounds. The first and oldest of these is on Park 
Street, Woburn Centre, and is probably coeval with the first settlement of 
the town, 1642. The second burial-ground is on Montvale Avenue, and, 
like the other, is situated near the Common. It was first opened as a parish 
burial-groijnd in 1791, and was subsequently purchased by the town in 
1824. 

The First Burial- Ground. — The earliest mention of this burying-ground 
in the Town Records is the comparatively late date of 1C62, and there are 
no stones now standing earlier than one double dated 1G89-90. The num- 
ber of epitaphs in 1866, the latest one being dated 1856, was 269, which is 
four less than were there in 1847. One was erected in 1872. to a person 
dying in 1792, and one was erected in 1875, to a hero of 1775. Adding 
these two to the four of 1817, the number is increased to 275. Of early 
references to interments in the yard may be cited the following from the 
first volume of the Town Records : The town debtor in 1678, to Gershnm 
Flagg, "for Cutler's grave," 3s. 6d. ; May 5, 1679, the selectmen appointed 
John Houghton, Senior, " to ring the bell, to dig graves, and to cleanse 
the meeting-house." 

Two collections of the inscriptions have been made, one by Nathan 
Wyman, in 1847, and- another by W. R. Cutter, in 1866. Mr. Wyman's 
list was published in the " N. E. Hist. Gen. Reg.," IL, III., 1848-49, but for 
want of space all the material sent was not printed, and the literal trans- 
cript, which was expected, did not appear. The Cutter transcript is a 
literal one, with explanatory notes for each epitaph, and is in manuscript. 
The number of headstones now standing, of date previous to 1700, is 
12 to adnlts, and 12 to young children. The age given of the oldest per- 
son of this number is 82 ; there are 4 of age from 72 to 79 ; 2 among the 
60's ; 1 among the 50's ; 2 among the 40's ; 1 among the 30's ; and one 
only 19 years. The ages of the children are from a few hours, or 1 day, to 
5 years, viz., 5 of age less than 7 days; 1 whose age was reckoned by

weeks ; 3 whose ages were reckoned by months ; and 3 whose ages were 
reckoned by years. These stones are of the enduring nature of those of 
the older persons, all being imported apparently from the old country. 

The ground has been subjected by action of the town to some encroach- 
ments of its original territory ; and, owing to these impairments, some 
gravestones are known to have been relocated. It may be supposed, how- 
ever, that these changes have been small, and that they have effected little 
change in the appearance of the yard. The principal entrance was for- 
merly by a passageway under the rock beside the Central House, and 
another entrance, in the direction of Park Street, was cut off with bars, 
being the way much used iu former times leading to a spring, or watering- 
place, near the junction of Park and Centre Streets. The encroachments, 
the past entrance near the Central House, and the way to the watering- 
place appear on a plan belonging to the city, by C. Thompson, of date 
1865, 

The number of interments represented by headstones, during the 
period from 1700 to 1750, is 126. This number may well be used as an 
illustration of the corresponding growth of the town itself. Of this num- 
ber there are in all 49 male persons, of ages from 17 to 94 years; 9 were 
over 70 ; 23, from 50 to 70 ; 12, under 40 ; while 5 were between- 40 and 50 
years. Of women there are 47, of ages from 20 to 9» years ; 6 were over 
70; 12, from 50 to 70; 20, under 40; and 9, from 40 to 50 years. The 
mortality of women under 40 appears large, nearly half the whole number. 
Of persons below the age of adults the number is 33, of ages from 2 days 
to 15 years ; under 10 are 24 ; and 8 were over 10. 

In connection with this period is an interesting discovery. The only 
table monument in the yard is not the monument of Elizabeth Cotton, as 
might appear, but the monument of Nathaniel Saltonstall, Esq., who died 
in Woburn, June 23, 1739. It is a red sandstone slab, on which are 
indentations where a coat-of-arms and an inscription on tablets of lead or 
stone were admitted, but which, like the original base of brick, long ago 
disappeared. Four granite pillars now support it in a horizontal position, 
and on its top reclines the slate slab of Elizabeth Cotton (1742), a niece 
of Saltonstall. The executors' probate account of Saltonstall's estate, 
filed with his will and inventory, Middlesex County registry, of date June 
25, 1739, presents amounts of considerable size on behalf of several 
persons; such as, Ebenezer Kendall, of Woburn, for digging a grave, and 
Isaac Snow, of Woburn, for coffin and plates, charges amounting to more 
than £10. Nathaniel Lamson, a stone-cutter of Charlestown, presents a 
charge of £26 for a tombstone. Thomas Moulin, an out-of-town party, 
charges for use of pall and porterage, and for making a brick grave, — 
bricks and lime and workmen, — a sum amounting to more than £10. 
The items of tombstone, brick grave, etc., were contracted in the latter 
part of July, 1739, the whole being completed on the 29th. The Boston 
WeeJdy Newsletter for June 28, 1739, under the heading of " Boston," has 



CONCISE HISTORY OF WOBUEN. 0* 

the following notice: "Last Saturday night, died very suddenly at 
Woburn, Nathaniel Saltonstall, Esq. ; he was younger brother to the late 
Governor Saltonstall, of Connecticut. A gentleman well respected among 
us." He removed to Woburn before 1738. (See Woburn Journal, Jan. 
19, 1883.) 

The slate slab of Elizabeth Cotton, now evidently removed from its 
site, contains an epitaph unusually singular, of such phrases as she "died 
a virgin," and, " if a virgin marry she hath not sinned," etc. A search at 
the Middlesex registry fails to discover any papers of administration on 
her estate. 

The headstones from 1750 to 1775, the remaining years of the provin- 
cial period, are proportionately numerous. The number erected to persons 
over 25 years of age is 60, — 30 males and 30 females. Of the males, 2 
were over 90, — 1 in his ninety-sixth year ; while 8 males and 9 females 
were over 70. The oldest female was 81 ; 10 females «~ere under 50, and 
11 from 50 to 70. Of persons under 25, the number was 24, including i 
married females ; 15 were over 16; 1 was 6, and 8 were under 5 years. 
The age of the youngest was 4 days. The number was about equally 
divided as to sex. There is a noticeable decrease in the number of 
headstones to children at this time, and adulatory inscriptions are more 
common. 

Erom 1775 to 1793 the stones are mostly those of aged persons; the 
number to children, from 1775 to 1787, being 6, of ages from 6 weeks to 
3 years. The whole number to 1793 is only 36, or at most 38, counting 
two of recent erection. A new burial-ground was opened in 1794, and a 
small number, perhaps not over 3, were removed from this to that. 
The comparatively fewer stones after 1775 show that the Revolution bore 
hard upon the prosperity acquired by the people under the provincial 
system of government. The war began at their very doors, and little was 
left afterwards for luxuries of any Isind. 

On March 5, 1810, the town granted the request of the heirs of Col. 
Loammi Baldwin to build a tomb, the yard in which it was to be built 
being left discretionary witti the Standing Committee. This yard was 
selected, and a granite obelisk over the tomb contains a marble tablet to 
Hon. Loammi Baldwin, died 1807, eet. 63; "erected by his children." 
Inscriptions still more recent are those of Wyman Richai-dson, Esq., 1841, 
and John Fowle, 2d, 1856; the latter on a marble monument, erected in 
memory of James Fowle, Esq. , and his descendants, on a lot deeded to 
the town. Asahel Porter, killed at Lexington, April 19, 1775, was com- 
memorated by a marble stone, erected April 21, 1875, by the local Grand 
Army Post. 

In July and August, 1874, a series of articles by the present writer 
appeared in the Woburn Journal, on the subject of this and other Woburn 
old cemeteries. These were intended to describe their appearance, and 
gaveageneral account of the gravestones and the persons interred beneath

them. The subject was still further referred to in the Woburn Journal, 
May 1, 1875; and an article was printed on the subject of the Woburn 
Cemetery on Salem Street, ibid., Jan. 9, 1875. Prom these articles and the 
lists of Inscriptions, as well as the gravestones themselves, a good idea 
may be obtained of the value of these monuments as a record of the past. 
It had been the writer's intention to present a list of the names of those 
buried beneath these memorials, but his limits have already been exceeded. 

The Second: Burial-Gromd^ — This was originally established by the 
society of the First Parish in Woburn. The subject was agitated early in 
1793, and at first Ensign Ichabod Parker, Mr. Daniel Reed, and Capt. 
Joseph Brown were appointed a committee to see about ' ' a new burying- 
place." The Standing Committee of the parish at this period appear to 
have charge of both burying-grounds, from allusions in the records to the 
old one. On April 14, 1794, the parish voted to purchase of Capt. Joseph 
Brown the land that had been Zachariah Brooks's, about one acre, for 
their purpose, for a sum a little less than £40. The three deacons, 
Samuel Thompson, Obadiah Kendall, and Josiah Richardson, with the 
Standing Committee, were to fix a fence about the enclosure, make a gate, 
and arrange the ground for interments. They were also to determine when 
the new buryiug-place should be opened, and the old one shutup. Certain 
members of the Baptist Society in the limits of the parish soon desired 
a share in the benefits of burial in the "new burying-yard," by paying 
their "proportionable part"; and on April 13, 1795, the privilege was 
granted. Later in the same year, the Baptists, not owning any right, were 
allowed liberty of burial, on the payment of half a dollar a grave. Later 
still, April 11, 1796, all Baptists were admitted joint proprietors, on 
payment of their proportional part of the expenses. In 1799, in respect 
to what the parish will do " respecting the burying-yard," it was decided 
that the Standing Committee shall " take care " of it, and " conduct that 
article " as they think best for the interest of the parish. After the 
separation of Burlington, in 1799, the town and the First Parish were 
practically one in the effect of their action in the matter of the burying- 
grounds Thus the town in 1806, arid following years, chose committees 
to take care of the meeting-house and burying-grounds. The parish was 
incorporated as the First Congregational Parish in 1816, and in 1823 the 
parish granted permission to Dr. Rufus Wyman to erect a tomb, under 
supervision of the Standing Committee. At the same time, in 1823, the 
parish took measures to sell their burying-ground to the town, and this 
was soon accomplished for |162.50. 

The earliest dated stones are removals from the older yard, or else- 
where, and many later ones have been removed to the Salem Street 
Cemetery, opened ia 1845. Interments have rarely been made in recent 
years. Many useful characters, deserving of respectful remembrance, 
are interred here : Fathers of the Revolution ; four victims of the fall of 
the Clapp house-frame, July 14, 1307; school-masters, doctors, magis-

trates, the wife of a minister, and many others. There are verbatim lists 
of the inscriptions here as they were in 1847, and have been since. They 
were the joint work of Dr. Benjamin Cutter and Nathan Wyman, continued 
and recopied by the present writer. The number of headstones is about 
350 ; some containing inscriptions to at least two persons. Dr. Cutter's 
number of inscriptions was, in 1847, counting by individuals, 365. The 
one of earliest date was 1789. Of persons over 70 there were 78 ; 7, 
over 90 years. The number under 20 was 105. Of unknown age, 2. Of 
women, there are 121 over 20 years ; the number under 40 and over 20, 
being 47, — a very slight decrease in the mortality of that class over the 
corresponding period of the previous century. The Richardson family in 
Dr. Cutter's list presents an interesting instance of longevity. The num- 
ber of persons of that name represented by inscriptions was 50. Of these 
5 were over 90; 2 were 96; over 70 and under 90 were 16 persons; 
under 20 were 4 only. Of the remaining 25, there were 12 between 40 and 
70; and 13 between 20 and 40. Of the last number, 2, one aged 30 and 
the other 31, were killed outright by accidents connected with the fall or 
destruction of buildings. In B. Cutter's list are some twenty-four 
inscriptions that are not in N. Wyman's; and in the latter, to 1847, are 
some accessions not found in the former; but, otherwise, they corre- 
spond fairly well. Mr. Wyman continued his work after Dr. Cutter 
ended, and thus obtained additions. The whole number, by individuals, 
to 1870, is 388. Since 184r5, the removals have been far greater than the 
accessions, and some monuments have perished, from the character of 
their materials, wood having in some instances been used. Since 1848, 
there is one stone to a person of 24, another to one of 48 ; others to per- 
sons of 71, 81, 88, 83, and 97 years : total, 7.

INTRODUCTION. 

This collection of inscriptions from the gravestones now standing in 
Woburn Old Burying-ground was gathered by the undersigned during the 
fall of the year 18(!6. The time when this ancient depository of the dead 
was first opened for interments is not definitely ascertained. Its exist- 
ence in 1662 is mentioned. ( Vide Town Records, Vol. I., page 51.) 

It was doubtless extant some time prior to that date. The oldest stone 
standing, i. e., bearing the earliest recorded death, is dated, old style, 
" 1689-90 " (epitaph 1). Capt. Edward Johnson, author of the " Wonder- 
working Providence," and the most Influential of the founders of Woburn, 
is supposed to be interred in this yard. No stone to his memory is found. 
When, during the present century, the wall and the town pound were 
built on the western side of the yard, several skeletons were exl^umed. 
The earliest interments are thought to have been in this. pait. 

In 1848-4:9, a list of deaths as found on the stones in this enclosure was 
published in the 'New England Historical and Genealogical Register" 
(Vols. II. and III.), from material furnished by Nathan Wyman, Esq., 
town clerk. Eor want of space, but not in accordance with that gentle- 
man's first design, a literal transcript of inscriptions was not attempted ; 
and in that production, names, dates, ages, and poetry, almost without 
exception, were alone presented.

( Vide Woburn Journal, -Tune 5, 1869.) 

Rev. John Fox, son of Rev. Jabez Fox, of Woburn, graduated from 
Harvard College in 1698 ; was grammar-school master of his native town 
for several years ; succeeded his father in the ministry at Woburn, Oct. i, 
1703, and continued there until his death, Dec. 12, 17.'<6, aged 77. He was 
unhappily deprived of his eyesight for about fifteen years before his death, 
but, however, preached occasionally in this time, and often catechised the 
youth of his parish, who used to resort to his house for this purpose, and 
to receive his pious counsels and exhortations. 

Rev. Edward Jackson was his colleague for a considerable time, and 
died. Rev. Josiah Sherman, also, was ordained his colleague about a year 
before his death. 

Mr. Fox married Mary, daughter of Hon. Edward Tyng, of Massachu- 
setts (brother of Col. Jonathan Tyng, died in Woburn, 1724 [epitaph 83]), 
who, being appointed governor of Annapolis, was taken on his passage to 
that place, carried to France, and there died. (See Coll. Mass. Hist. Soc, 
Vol. X.) Mr. Fox was author of two sermons extant on Sam. i. 14, 15, 
occasioned by the great earthquake of Oct. 29, 1727. 

Mrs. Mary Fox survived her husband eight or ten years [died February, 
1764], but no stone has been erected to designate the spot of their inter- 
ment. Issue : — 

1. John, in early life went to Ireland to live with a wealthy relative. 

2. Jabez (Hon.), spent his days at Falmouth, now Portland, Me. 

3. Thomas, a goldsmith, lived in Boston. 

4. Edward, lost at sea on his passage to England. 

5. Jonathan (Col.), lived and died in Woburn. 

6. Mary, married Rev. Habijah Weld, Attleboro'. 



Rcy. Habijah Weld was third minister of Attleboro', where he was set- 
tled in 1726. Mr. Weld was a man of extraordinary virtues, and preached 
in that place 55 years. He received from his parishioners an annual salary 
of two hundred and twenty dollars, and the use of a parsonage lot which 
furnished him with wood, and a little pasture. With a scanty patrimony 
he purchased a small house and farm ; and with these means he educated

His second wife, Ann, widow of Phineas Jones, died June 9, nrs, aged 
43. He graduated at Harvard College In 1727, studied divinity and be- 
came a preacher of the gospel. His health being afiected by spealiing in 
public, his slender constitution was unable to endure the onerous duties 
of the ministry, and thus he was forced to relinquish his intended favorite 
profession. He fixed his abode in the city where he eventually died, and 
was for a few years a member of the Executive Council of »Massachu- 
setts. (Ibid , Vol. I., Art. 118.) 

Mary (Fox) Weld, daughter of Rev. John Fox, and wife of Rev. 
Habijah Weld, of Attleboro', Mass., died Jan. 7, 1709. aged 93. " Pas- 
senger, aspire not to her age, but to imitate her life, which was a real 
ornament to the Christian profession." (Gravestone ) Her daughter, 
Sarah Weld, married Rev. Timothy Alden, of Yarmouth, Mass The 
latter were parents of Rev. Timothy Alden, of Newarlj, N. J., author of 
the valuable " Collections." ( Vide ibid.. Vol. I., 46.) 

Alden cites the following notice of a " learned and remote ancestor of 
Mr. Fox," from a " very rare work," D. Pauli Freheri, Med. Noribergse,

of I«aac (epitapli 242) and Phebe (Richardson) Snow, of Wobura. {Vide 
Sewall's History, (i41 ; Vinton Memorial, 384.) Daniel Thompson was 
admitted mt-mber of Wohurn First Church, Oct. 7, 1759; and Phebe 
Thompson, wife of Daniel, was admitted member of th« same, March 
II, 1764. (FiV'e Church Maonal, p. 10.) He lived in Central Square, 
where the late Capt. John I. Richardson's pLite is. On the morning of 
April 19, 177.T, he rode to North Woburn to rouse the people to resist the 
foe. He declared his determination lo oppose the enemy, even if he alone 
were to do it. Early in the afternoon during the retreat of the enemy 
from Concord, he was shot dead in Lincoln by a British grenadier. His 
remains and those of Asahel Porter, the other Woburn man who fell on 
that eventful day, were interred in Woburn on Friday, April 21, follow- 
ing. Before the imerment. Rev. Josiah Sherman, of Woburn, delivered 
a very suitable sermon and prayer. A multitude of persons who assem- 
bled on the occasion from Woburn and the neighboring towns attended 
the remains to the grave. ( Vide Vinton Memorial, 384, 385, note ; Eroth- 
inghiim's Siege of Boston, 74; Sewall's Woburn, 362, etc.) 

" Our party had but three or four killed in this skirmish; one was my 
brother Daniel Thompson, who was much lamented and who behaved very 
valiantly." (S. Thompson's Memoranda.) 

No stone to the memory of Asahel Porter in this yard exists ; whether 
one was ever erected is very doubtful. The following few particulars 
regarding this individual may not be out of place. [A stone was erected 
April 21, 1875, by the G. A. R.] 

He was the son of William Porter, and was shot down by the British 
in the early part of the day on the Common at Lexington. Having pre- 
viou.sly been taken prisoner on their march, he was killed by his captors 
as he was endeavoring to eifect his escape. ( Vide Sewall's Woburn, 362 ;

EPITAPHS, FIRST BURIAL-GROUND. 47* 

Mr. Samuel Perley's parish of Seabrook, New Hampshire, touching the 
seacoast and lying on the Massachusetts border, seems to have been a 
sort of Gretna Green for persons in this State a century ago. An instance 
in point is cited in History Cutter Family of New England, p. 48. 

Abigail Brooks, married, as above, to Asahel Porter, "both of Salem," 
Oct. 3, 1773, was daughter of Capt. Timothy and Ruth (Wyman) Brooks, 
of Woburn, where she was born June 18, 1756, and baptized March 20, 
1757. Her father was son of John and Mary (Richardson) Brooks, and 
grandson of John and Eunice (Mousall) Brooks, whose father, Henry 
Brooks, came to Woburn from Concord. As widow of Asahel Porter, 
killed at Lexington tight, April 19, 1775. as before stated, she married 
Ephraim Peirce (son of Jacob) (intention dated Nov. ao, 1782). Peirce 
died May 16, 1810, aged 52. Her death occurred Jan. 9, 1840, at the 
advanced age of 84. (Dr Benjamin Cutter's MS.) 

•'Israel (Asahel) Porter was taken pi-isoner by the British when they 
were marching up in the morning. In attempting to escape from them 
he was killed and his body was found close by the stone wall below 
(Rufus) Merriam's garden, east of the (Lexington) Meeting liouse." (MS. 
narrative of Lexington battle by Levi Harrington, an eye-witness, 1846.) 
(See Middlesex Journal, April 26, 187S.) 

" A Reminiscence. — Dr. Loring in his address at Lexington on the 
19th, referred to Asahel Porter. This has reminded a gentleman of 
Woburn who was present last Wednesday, of an account of the death of 

Porter. It seems that Asahel Porter and Richardson set out on the 

morning of the battle to go to market. Richardson lived where Capt. 
Woodberry's store in Woburn now stands. They started for Boston and 
their route lay through West Cambridge. They were mounted on horses 
with their market stuff in panniers. Near West Cambridge they were 
halted by the advancing column of the British. In spite of their asser- 
tion that they were peaceable citizens, they were made prisoners and made 
to accompany tlie troops to Lexington. Here the British set them at 
liberty on condition they should go peaceably about their business. 
Richardson, walked off slowly, but Porter, after walking a few steps, 
started to run, when he was shot by the soldiers." (Middlesex County 
Journal, Saturday, May 6, 1871.)

place should be opened, and the old Burying place shut up : and then made

April 13, 1795. On above petition voted: " That any member belong- 
ing to the Baptist Society within the limits of the First Parish of Woburn, 
occupy the new Burying yard in said Parish in common with the said First 
Parish for the purpose of burying their dead, provided they pay their 
proportionable part according to their polls & estates in said First Parish 
for what said Burying yard cost; and also their part of enclosing the old 
Burying yard, and all such other necessary expense as may arise respect- 
ing both said burying yards. Provided also that said Baptists comply 
with this vote on or before the expiration of two months. 

" Voted, that a copy of the foregoing vote be transmitted to the Peti- 
tioners, and the Clerk to perform the same." 

June 15, 1795. " Voted that the time for the above to comply with 
above vote be lengthened to the last Monday of September next." 

September 28, 1795. Met only and adjourned. 

October 26, 1795. " The parish passed the following vote — 

" That those Persons who are members of the Baptist Society ini the 
First Parish of "Woburn, who do not now own any Right in the new Bury- 
ing yard, may have liberty to Bury iheir Dead in said new Burying, yard,, 
on paying to the Treasurer of said First Parish half one Dollar for each 
grave before the same be dug; and that said Treasurer give to those per- 
sons (who apply and pay as aforesaid) a certiflcate to the sexton, and 
that he dig the graves certified in said certificates — they paying the sex- 
ton for digging said graves — and attend such funerals in the same man- 
ner as though they belonged to said First Parish." 

At this period the town was divided into two parishes : the first now 
including the present towns of Woburn and Winchester; the second 
including what is now Burlington, and which was separated from the 
First Parish in 1730, and incorporated as the town of Burlington in 1799.. 
In the First Parish at this time were only two religious societies. All in- 
habitants of the First Parish were rated as members of said parish, save 



68* INTRODUCTION. 

those who belonged to the Baptist Society, which had come into existence, 
and secured this exemption a few years previously. The town of Win- 
chester was incorporated in 1850. The Baptist Society, observe, was 
styled " The Baptist Society of the First Parish in Woburn " 

April i, 1796. Warrant: Art. 3. "To see if the Parish will admit 
the members of the Baptist Society that live within the limits of the Par- 
ish, to be proprietors in common with the present members of said Parish, 
in the new Buryiqg yard ; provided said Baptists pay their proportion of 
the cost and charges in the purchase and repairs of the new Burying 
yard, and enclosing the old Burying yard agreeable to their Petition, or 
do anything respecting the same that the Parish may think best when met 
together." 

April 11, 1796. " Voted that the Baptist Society of the First Parish in 
Woburn, may become joint proprietors of the new Burying yard, upon 
their paying their money, or adequate security, to the Parish Committee 
of the First Parish in Woburn, their proportion of the first purchase 
money and the repairs that have been done on the same ; and also their 
fencing the old Burj'ing yard. 

" Voted, that the standing committee of said Parish settle with the 
members of said Baptist Society according to the foregoing vote." 

March 5, 1798. Warrant: Art. 9. " To see if the Parish will do any- 
thing respecting the Pall." 

March 19, 1798. "Left (repairs of &c.) Pall (or Grave Cloth) to dis- 
cretion of the committee." 

April 1, 1799. Warrant: Art. 11. "To see what the Parish will do- 
respecting the Burying Yard." 

April 29, 1799. " Voted that the standing committee take care of the 
Burying yard and conduct tliat article as they may think best for the in- 
terest of the Parish " 

After the separation of the First and Second Parishes of the town by 
the incorporation of Burlington, in 1799, tlie First Parish and the town 
were in effect one and the same organization. Hence the town in 1806 and 
following years chose committees to take care of the meeting-house and 
burying-grounds in the limits of what had been the First Parish-, articles 
being Inserted in the warrants for town meetings for this purpose. The 
First Congregational Parish of Woburn was incorporated in the year 1816, 
and was the legitimate advancement of the old First Parish, preservative 
of the old organization. This body still retained the burying-yard. In a 
warrant of the parish dated March 7, 1823, is an article: Art. 8. "To 
see if the Parish will give liberty to Doct. Kuf us Wyman to erect a tomb 
in the ntw burying ground, or do anything respecting the same." 

April 14, 1823. " Voted, that liberty be given to Doct. Rufus Wyman

Nathan Parlier, born in "Woburn, Feb. 21, 1769, son of Josiah and Mary 
I'arlier. 

Nathan Parker and Polly Richardson, both of Woburn, were married 
Nov. 10, 1793. 

Polly Parker (Mrs. Nathan Parker) admitted member of First Church, 
Sept. 2, lti04. (Church Manual, p. 14.) 

The account of the accident which caused Parker's, Wright's, and Rich- 
ardson's deaths is the following extract from the first newspaper article 
ever published by W. R. Cutter. It formed part of an article printed by 
him in the Woburn Journal for Feb. 6, 1S69 : — 

THE FALL OF TUB CLAJT nOITSK FKAMB, JULY 14, 1807. 

On July 14, 1807, an important event occurred in Woburn, which veiled 
the entire community with sorrow, and proved long the common topic of 
conversation in aU the region round about. This memorable occurrence, 
not noticed in our admirable town history, recently published, is well re- 
membered by the aged among us. We refer to the lamentable accident at 
the building of the " Clapp Mansion," that large, square house of three 
stories, standing until a recent date at Central Square. It was the fashion 
to rear the frame of the sides of the dwellings complete; and "raisings," 
as they were called , were rendered important in the eyes of the general 
public by the provision of the usual popular entertainment for all strangers 
attending not invited to private houses. 

Major Jeremiah Clapp, Esq., being a man of wealth and importance, the 
erection of the frame of his dwelling, of more than ordinary dimensions, 
commanded an unusual attendance of guests and assistants. Two sides 
of the mansion, to be of brick, put in after the frame was raised, were 
ill supplied with the necessary braces. Consequently, when the timbers 
intended for the crown roof were passed to the top of the structure, 
together with thirty or more persons to construct the same, it was casu- 
ally noticed by certain of the spectators that the frame leaned percepti- 
bly to the west. The raising was nearly finished, the hour of six had 
arrived, and the expectant workmen hopefully ruminated on the prospec- 
tive festivity of the evening. The frame leans more discernibly tUan 
before ; it is too late to avoid the calamity ; all efi'orts are in vain; the frame 
falls with an awful crash, heard miles distant. A cry of agony ensues, 
too fearful to be ever forgotten ; the spectators stand aghast at the ca- 
tastrophe. Then followed a confusion that baffles description. There 
was a rush to extricate those buried in the ruins. 



80* EPITAPHS, SECOND BURIAL-GROUND. 

Joshua Richardson and Samuel Wright, young men of promise, were 
instantly Icilled, and their bodies were removed, horribly mangled. John 
layman, of North Woburn, after excruciating suffering, died the same 
niiifht. Nathan Parlier, an industrious and ingenious tradesman, died dar- 
ing tlie week, leaving a wife and five children " to lament the loss of one 
of the best of husbands and fathers." Thirty or forty individuals, " the 
strong men of our town," were wounded in an inconceivable variety of 
ways. Some lingered months, and even years, until death eventually re- 
lieved them of pain. Others were crippled for life, and many gradually 
recovered from their injuries. Jonathan Tidd, of North Woburn, liad 
his back broken, and never walked readily afterwards Capt. Ishmael 
Munroe, of Burlington, Deacon Benjamin Wyraan, Capt John Eclgell, Josiah 
Parker, Jonathan Thompson, Jacob Converse, and many others of promi- 
nence, were likewise among the wounded. 

The funeral of Richardson, Wright, and Lyman was held in 'the Third 
Meeting-House. Rev. Joseph Chickering, the pastor, preached an appro- 
priate discourse to a large and sorrowing audience, from the text : "And, 
behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness, and smote the four 
corners of the house, and it fell upon the young men, and they are dead ; 
and 1 only am escaped alone to tell thee." Job 1. 19. 

Richardson and Wright were both about to be married, and their be- 
reaved ladies appeared with the chief mourners at the obsequies. The 
gravestones of Richardson, Wright, and Parker are found in the Second 
Burying-Ground, adorned with ins'criptions uniquely descriptive of their 
several virtues, "and eulogistic of the merit thus untimely lost to tlie 
town. 

(44.) " This stone erected in Memory of Mrs. Elizabeth Richardson 
wife of Mr Zachari^b Richardson; she died Aug. 5, 1807 Aged 65 years." 
" Read this & weep, but not for me 
Who willing was to part with thee, 
That I may rest with Christ above. 
In peace & joy and endless love." 

Elizabeth (Brooks) Richardson, wife of Zachariah Richardson (epitaph 
69), married })ec. 30, 1767. She was born April 22, 1742; daughter of 
Nathaniel and Submit (Poulter) Brooks, and grand-daughter of Jabez and 
Hephzibah (Cutter) Brooks (epitaph, Eirst Yard). 

(45.) " This Stone erected in Memory of Mr. Joseph Lawrence 2d, who

" Remember your creator, God, 
Before you feel his chastening rod ; 
Eor death will come and stop your breath, 
And you must sleep with me in death. 
The Lord was pleased mercy to show, 
He was resign'd & long'd to go. 
When God did call, without a moan 
Yielded his breath without a groan." 

Joseph Lawrence, 2d, son of Deacon Ebenezer (epitaph 304) and Hannah

LONGEVITY IN WOBURN. 

By William R. Cutter. 



Longevity. — Closely connected with the subjects last treated * are the 
facts of longevity. A list of all the persons found in the records to the 
present time, who have died in Woburu at the age of 80 years and over, 
has been made; and the list is much longer than might be supposed, the 
later years, owing to the increased population and the improved methods 
of subsistence, showing a large number. Previous to the Revolution, it 
was not customary to record the ages in the town records, and such ages 
as are found are taken from gravestones. The town record of deaths 
begins in 1642. The first recorded age of a person over 80 is in 1699. 
For one hundred years, to 1799, the list is a short one. For the half -cen- 
tury from 1799 to 1850, the list is a longer one; and from 1850 to the 
present time, it is longer than all the rest put together. 

From 1699 to 1799, the whole number is 68 ; over 90 are 18. The name 
of Richardson is represented by 8 persons ; Johnson, by 6 ; Wright, 5 ; 
Reed, 4; Wyman, 4; Symmes, 3; all others, 38. Of 95 years and over, 
are 10; 1, 95; 5, 96; 1, 97; 1, 98; and 2, 99. The names of these very 
aged persons were as follows : — 

James Converse, 1715, 95 ; Judith Tyng (widow of Col. Jonathan), 1736, 
99; George Reed, 1756, 96; Abigail Baldwin (widow of Henry), 1771, 96; 
Catherine Spear (widow of John), 1775, 96; Mr. Perry, 1777,98; Judith 
Proctor. 1783,96; Samuel Carter, 1787, 96; Rebecca Russell (widow of 
Samuel), 1791, 99; Joseph Johnson, 1798, 97. 

From 1799 to 1850, the whole number is 115 ; over 90 are 22. The name 
of Richardson is represented by 20 persons ; Thompson, by 7 ; Reed, 6 ; 
Johnson, 5; Kendall, 5; Converse, 4; Leathe, 4; Wyman, 4; all others, 
60. Of 95 years and over, are 8; over 100, 2; over 110, 1; the oldest 
being accredited with the age of 115. There are 5 of 96; 1 of 98; 1 of 
104 ; and 1 of 115 years of age. The names of these were as follows : — 

Chloe, a black (belonging to Medford), 1804, 104; Joseph Richardson, 
1823, 96 ; Prince Walker, a black man, 1825, 115 ; Widow Holden, 1830, 96 ; 
Abel Richardson, 1831, 96; Edward Kichardson, 1837, 96; Keziah Thomp- 
son, 1845, 96 ; Abigail Flagg, 1847, 98. 

From 1850 to Aug. 30, 1889, the whole number is 330; over 90, 44; 
over 100, 3. Two are accredited with the age of 110; 1 was 101; 2 were 
99 ; 2, 97 ; 1, 96 ; L', 95. The names of the ten oldest were as follows : —

Susanna Ash. 1854, 95 years, 9 months; Mary McLaughlin, 1864, 97; 
Mary Richardson, 1864, 99 years, 7 months, 14 days; Jesse Converse, 
1864, 99 years, 5 months, 8 days; Joshua Converse, 1868, 101 years, 16 
days; Ellen O'Neil, 1872, 96 years, 5 months, 16 days; Ruth Wood, 1882, 
95 years, 22 days; Dolly Taylor, 1882, 97 years, 2 months, 25 days; 
Mary McVicker, 1885, 110; Jane Burkeland, 1888, 110. 

The ages in the above list are those given in the town records. In the 
case of very aged persons, the estimated age is apt to be placed too high 
In the last century, the contemporary diarist -would often record that such 
and such a person died " aged 90 or more " ; " 92 or more " ; "aged 96 or 
97"; "almost 100," etc.; showing a praiseworthy caution In accepting 
the facts currently stated; and our examination of such data shows that 
the lesser number given is nearer the truth ; as, for instance, the person 
" aged 90 or more," is actually found to be 90, or more nearly 90 than any 
other age. It is also true that there appears to be very little examination, 
if any, of the local records, in many of these cases, to ascertain the exact 
date of birth ; the friends evidently falling back upon the old habit of 
fixing the years by comparison with the dates of occurrences that were 
believed to have happened about the same time; and, in this, they 
depended much on their memory, not depending on accurate chronological 
records, which were not generally kept. There is no reason to doubt, 
however, that the persons mentioned were very old, and that they all had 
lived till they were upwards of a century, even if the time of their birth is 
not substantiated by the presence of accurate written records. The facts 
we have given may not be valuable scientifically, but are interesting his- 
torically. It will be noticed that three of the oldest persons in our list 
are blacks, aged respectively, 104, 110, and 115; these ages may be much 
exaggerated, but it is a fact stated by scientists, that while the life of a 
negro in Africa may be short, the negro, when transplanted to America, 
enjoys a longer life, longer, perhaps, on an average, than the majority of 
the whites. Thus there are many centenarians among that race. A few 
particulars regarding the persons whose names we have cited as instances 
of extreme longevity are here given. 

Of the first group (1699-1799), James Converse, died "in the 95th year 
of his age," — gravestone,— was the last survivor of the thirty-two sub- 
scribers to the town orders of Woburn, 1640, or of the original Woburn 
settlers of that year. He came to this country with his father, Edward 
Converse, when he was about ten years old. Judith Tyng was formerly 
the wife of the Rev. Jabez Eox, of Woburn, and daughter of the elder 
Rev. John Reyner, minister of Plymouth, and of Dover, N. H., also. She 
died " in the 99th year of her age," — gravestone,— on which she is said to 
have been " a woman of most exemplary virtue and piety, rich in grace, 
ripe for glory." Her epitaph is given by her descendant Alden, Coll., I., 
229 ; also in Sewall's Woburn, U2. The Rev. Timothy Alden, Coll., I., 225, 
published in 1814, gives also an extended account of the family of Rev. 



LONGEVITY IN WOBURN. 157* 

Jabez Fox, his ancestor. Savage does not give the date of birth of Judith 
(Eeyner-Fox) Tyng, but credits her as the issue of her father's second 
marriage, which occurred in 1642. According to her gravestone, her 
birth would appear to have occurred in 1638 ; and if she was the issue of 
a marriage that occurred in 1642, her age is evidently overstated. There 
is this to say, however ; her family connections by blood and marriage 
were of the highest to be found in the Colonies, both for intelligence and 
wealth, and weight of character, and Savage may be mistaken in assign- 
ing her as the child of a later marriage of her father, when she may have 
been a child of an earlier marriage, or of his first. We cannot believe 
otherwise than that her family connections were persons of sufficient 
intelligence to know her precise age, and that they saw to it that her age 
was correctly given on her gravestone. 

She is also the person referred to in the papers on the Fox-Jackson 
ministerial controversy in Woburn, where an ex-parte council of Mr. 
Jackson's own choosing, in December, 1746, passed an unfavorable judg- 
ment upon his conduct, touching that part of Article 6, of the accusations 
of the complainants against him, in which, after the Rev. John Fox and 
his wife had put up a note desiring that the death of their " aged mother"^ 
might be sanctified, etc., Mr. Jackson then prayed in a manner highly 
unbecoming to a Christian minister. 

George Reed died " in the 96th year of his age," — gravestone,— was a 
deacon, and was born in JVoburn, Sept. 14, 1660; his age was therefore 
correctly given as his 96th year, since he was actually 95 years, 4 months, 
6 days old. ((7/. Sewall's Woburn, 631, 632 ; History Keed Fam., 105.) 

Abigail Baldwin was Abigail Fisk before marriage. Samuel Thomp- 
son, Esq., the diarist, says her age was "96 or 97" when she died^ 
and her name is the first in his consecutive list of deaths. She was born 
in Cambridge, " 1. 2. 1674" [April 1, 1674]. (Cambridge Records.) She' 
was therefore about 96 years, 9 months, and her age, as stated above, 
is quite correctly given. {Cf. Paige's Cambridge, 546; Hudson's Lex 
ington, 69, 70; Vinton's Richardson Memorial, 44, 45.) 

Catherixb Speak and Mr. Perry. These two were temporary residents 
it is supposed. In the town, on account of the Revolutionary War. The 
town contained a number of refugees at that period. Neither are their 
names those of long-standing Woburn families at that time. " Old Mrs. 
Spear" died, aged "almost 100," says S. Thompson in his list; but he 
omits all mention of old Mr. Perry. In the absence of other data of a 
definite character, the presumption is that the facts of -very advanced age, 
as given in the cases of these two old persons, are evidently correct.* 

* The Widow Spear resided in Rev. John Marrett's parich (Woburn Second Precinct, now 
Burlington) , and he attended her funeral, which occurred on Nov, 30, 1776. John Spear^ 
probably her husband, was one of the original members of the Burlington, or Woburn, Pre- 
cinct Church, 1736. She was, therefore, a more permanent resident than the statement abovfr 
made would imply.

Judith Proctor. The same remarks in the above two cases apply in 
part to this. She is not mentioned in S. Thompson's list. We have no 
definite information, other than the record of her death. 

Samuel Cartbr. " Capt. Samuel Carter," says S. Thompson, "died," 
and was " buried this week " (Jan. 21-27, 1787), " aged 92 years or more." 
Died Jan. 21, 1787, aged 92, according to gravestone at Arlington. He 
was born in Woburn, Oct. 31, 1694, and, at his death, was actually 92 
years, 2 months, 20 days. His age, as given in the records, is therefore 
overstated, the record of the diarist and the gravestone being right. 
(O/. Sewall's Woburn, 598; Cutter's Cutter Family, 44, 377; Cutter's 
Arlington, 201, 202.) 

Rebecca KussELL. " Widow Russell died, aged about 98," says S. Thomp- 
son in diary. Her maiden name was Kendall. She was born in Woburn, 
Jan. 26, 1694-3. Her actual age at death was 96 years, 6 months, or 96i. 
Her age, as given in the records, was therefore overstated. {Cf. Sew- 
all's Woburn, 621 ; Locke's Book of the Lockes, 28 ; N. E. Hist. Gen. Reg., 
XXXIX., 20). 

Joseph Johnson. "Lieut. Joseph Johnson, 2d Parish, died, aged 97," 
remarks S. Thompson in his diary. He was born in Woburn, Feb. 9, 
1701-2. If this date is correct, his age is but little overstated ; and if 1701 
is the year, 97 years is right. {Of. Poole's W. W. Prov. introd. cli.) 

Of the second group (1799-1850), Chloe, the black, is described by S. 
Thompson in his diary as an " aged negro Tj;on;ian," dying in Woburn, but 
"buried at Medfoi'd " ; slie being "said to be 100 years old." 

Joseph Richardson was born in Woburn, Feb. 9, 1726-7. His age 
was therefore correctly stated. (Cf. Vinton's R. Mem., 254, 255, and his 
Vinton Mem., 389.) 

Prinob Walker, the black man, was an interesting character. He was 
the servant or slave of the Rev. Timothy Walker, the first minister of 
Concord, N. H. The master originated in Woburn, and the slave is sup- 
posed to have originated here also, though his birth is not discoverable on 
the records. That he died at the Woburn almshouse, after an extended 
residence there, would show that he was probably a native of the town. 
The Countess of Rumford, grand-daughter of Rev. Timothy Walker, 
alludes to him in lier memoirs. ( Cf. Ellis's Life of Rumford, 228 ; Diaries 
of Rev. Timothy Walker, ed. 1889, 25, 30, 31, 32, 35, 37, 38, 44, 45; Bou- 
ton's Concord, N. H., 252, 253.) 

Widow Holdbn. No further definite information. A reference to the 
church records has led to an examination of the early printed church cata- 
logues for the full name of this person, and In that of 1827, the name of 
Abigail Holden, adm., Nov., 1817, is found; alive in 1827, —called Mrs. 
William Holden, in that of 1832, in which her name is erased as a person 
deceased ; the copies referred to being marked copies belonging to the 
church oflicers. 

Abel Richardson. " JEt. 96," — gravestone. He was born in Woburn, 



LONGEVITY IN WOBUEN. 159* 

Oct. 23, 1736. His age, at cleath, therefore, would be 94 years, 7 months, 
i days. JEtatis signifies "year of age"; the equivalent of the phrase 
"in the — th year of his (or her) age," so frequently used on the stones 
in the Pirst (or earliest) Burying-Ground. Abel Richardson was interred 
in the Second Burying-Ground. He evidently died in his 95th year, and 
his age in the records and on the gravestone is overstated. ( Of. Vin- 
ton's E. Mem., 257, and his Vinton Mem., 390; Thompson's Thompson 
Mem., 83.) 

Edwakd EiCHAEDSON. " Jit. 96," — gravestoue. He was born in Read- 
ing, Aug. 25, 1743, and his age at death was 94 years, 2 months, 22 days. 
His age in the records and on the gravestone is therefore overstated. The 
gravestone in the Second Burying-Ground was " erected by Job Richard- 
son," a son. (C/. Vinton's R. Mem. 251, 252; Vinton Mem . 388, 389.) 

Kbziah Thompson. Unmarried. Born in Woburn, Feb. 15, 1747-8. 
Age at death, 97 years, 25 days, if the year of birth is correctly placed. 
She was certainly 96 years old, and her age as given in the records is 
not overstated, (cy. Thompson's Thompson Mem., 33.) 

Abigail Flagg. The Guide-post, Woburn, Feb. 4, 1847, under deaths, 
has this notice, "In this town. Widow Abigail Flagg, 99 years," — one 
year more than the age credited to her in the records. She was born at 
Wilmington, March 9, 1747-48, and her age, therefore, would be 98 years, 
10 months, 22 days, if the double date is correctly placed. One authority 
says she was born March 9, 1747 ; while another says the date was March 
9, 1748. The earlier date would make her age 99. Her maiden name was 
Thompson. {Cf. Thompson's Thompson -Mem. , 37.) 

Of the third group (1850 to Aug. 30, 1889), the following particulars may 
be given : — 

SusANXA Ash. Age given as 95, in deaths, Woburn Journal, March 18, 
1854. Widow. Born at Ipswich. Maiden name, Marshall. (C/. Woburn 
Records, and gravestone in Woburn cemetery.)

Woburn Journal, March 19, 1864. Widow. Native of Ireland. Parents 
unknown. Brief notice of death in Woburn Townsman, March 18, 1864. 
Maiden name, McFall. (Records.) 

Maky Richahdsox. Unmarried. Born in Woburn, Aug. 18, 1764, 
daughter of Abel Richardson, of the second group. Her age is correctly 
given in the records. Her birthplace was Reading, according to an extended 
notice of her death in Woburn Townsman. {Cf. Vinton's R. Mem., 257, 
and his Vinton Mem., 390; Woburn Journal, deaths, April 2, 1864; Wo- 
burn Townsman, April 1, 1864.) 

Jksse Converse. Born in Woburn, Feb. 9, 1765. ( Cf. Sewall's Woburn, 

606 ; Woburn Journal, deaths, and brief notice, July Ti, 1864 ; also a long 

notice in Woburn Townsman, July 22, 1864; also N. E. Hist. Gen. Reg.,

N. H., May 13, 1785. {Cf. Woburn Journal, May 19, 1882, for mention; 
ihid., Aug. 11, 1882, and Woburn Advertiser, Aug. 10, 1882, deaths and brief 
notice ; also notice from family.) 

Mary McVicker. Unmarried. Native of Greenock, Scotland. {Cf... 
notice in Woburn Advertiser, Oct. 22, 1885, where a belief in her still 
greater age is expressed.) 

Jane Burkbland. Colored. Born a slave in Richmond, Va. {Cf, 
Woburn Advertiser, May 17, 1888, and Woburn JbarreaZ, May 18, 25, 1888,

Washington.)
