INTRODUCTION. 



This volume, comprising the family records of the descendants 
of James Gilson, now Jilhon, of Rehoboth, Mass., and of Joseph 
Gilson, of Groton, Mass., although so insignificant in size, has 
occupied much of the author's time for the past three years. 

The family records, and other items, have been obtained from 
various sources. For the records of the family previous to the 
fifth generation, the author has had to rely (mainly) on town, 
county and church records, as but few of the name now living 
could furnish dates of births, marriages and deaths of their 
ancestors. 

No one (unless they have had some experience in collecting 
material for a work of this kind) can form an idea of the diffi- 
culty encountered in trying to obtain the family record of date 
of births, marriages, and deaths of our ancestors. People were 
very negligent in ye olden time in regard to such matters. All 
the town records were imperfectly kept. Perhaps in a family of 
eight or ten children, there would be found but three or four 
whose births were on record. In another family living in the 
same town, at the same time, there could be found no record 
whatever. 

It has also been impossible to obtain the family record of many 
of the name now living, for the reason that they do not take in- 
terest enough in the matter to answer letters of inquiry. 

It is difficult to compile a work of this kind wherein mistakes 
and omissions are not found. It is seldom that individual and 
town records of births, marriages, and deaths agree, and which 
are the most reliable it is hard to determine. There is often 
found a difference of dates in records received from different 
members of the same family, In such cases the preference has 
been given to town records, when they are to be found. 



IV. INTRODUCTION. 

The genealogy of the descendants of Nathaniel and James, the 
two sons of James Gilson, of Rehoboth, has been arranged in 
two parts. The first, called the Cumberland branch, represents 
the descendants of Nathaniel; the second, or Attlehoro branch, 
the descendants of James. 

There is none of the descendants .of either branch (now living) 
that knew the degree of relationship between the ancestors of the 
two branches. The writer has been informed by a very aged 
lady, who is connected with the Attleboro branch by marriage, 
that Luke* Jillson, who resided at Cumberland Hill, about seven 
miles from the original homestead in South Attleboro, used to 
call occasionally to see the grandfather of the writer, (Daniel*). 
Luke* and Daniel* were second cousins, and, as this lady says, 
knew the degree of relationship existing between them. 

The descendants of both branches are noted for their inventive 
and mechanical genius. In all mechanical occupations they ex- 
cel. Tradition says, the reason our ancestor left England was to 
escape a fine for hanging a gate, as that was not his trade or oc- 
cupation. 

Few of the name have become rich or famous. On the other 
hand, few have been poor, or have become a town charge. They 
are also noted for their longevity, as the record of births and 
deaths show — owing, no doubt, to our Norman or Norwegian 
origin. The Gilsons and Jillsons are the descendants of a hardy 
and vigorous race, as were most of the early settlers of New 
England. 

In all dates previous to 1752, between January 1st and March 
26th, one year has been added, in order to have all dates corres- 
pond with new style. 

The arrangement of the work will not require much explanation. 
The small numbers prefixed to the names refer to the same person 
in the next generation as the head of a family, so that it is very 
plain for any one to trace their ancestors back to the first of the 
name, or the reverse. 

Perhaps at some future time this work will, as others of like 
nature that have preceded it, be revised and republished, and in 
this connection the writer would say to all of the name, please 
send to his address all corrections and omissions that may have 
occurred, and to those not represented, their family history for 
the next edition. 



IKTRODUCTIOK. V. 

To all those that have responded to his request for their family 
history the writer tenders his sincere thanks. 

Among those who have given the writer material assistance in 
collecting their family records, and those of their ancestors, are 
the names of Edwin M. Jillson, Otisfield, Me. ; Hon. Clark Jill- 
son, (Mayor of the city of Worcester, Mass.); Nathan T. Jillson, 
Whitehall, N. Y. ; Sylvester W. Jillson, Warwick, Mass. ; Samuel 
T. Jillson, South Wilbraham, Mass.; Miss Rebecca S. Jillson, 
New London, Ct.; Horace Grey, Pelham, Mass.; Mrs. Samuel F. 
Baker, Montville, Ct. ; Miss Lucy M. Jillson, Norwich, Ct. ; Mr. 
Charles L. Jillson, Boonville, N. Y. ; James F. Jillson, Chicago, 
111. ; Arnold Jillson, South Attleboro, Mass. ; Mrs. C. A. Helmer, 
Dayton, Ohio; Benjamin C. Jillson, Pittsburg, Pa., and others. 

Hoping that this little work will become the medium of a 
better acquaintance among the different members of the family, 

I remain, yours fraternally, 

DAVID JILLSON. 



PREFACE. 



According to the best authority, the name Oillson, or Oilson, 
is derived from Gill and Giles. Archbishop French, in his book 
on words, remarks concerning the Gillsons, that some pronounced 
the G hard and others soft, and he. accounts for it by saying 
the former were the sons of Gilbert, and the latter the sons of 
Giles. 

Family surnames were not commonly in use previous to the 
tenth century. They were first used in France, particularly in 
Normandy. Previous to the Norman conquest the people in 
England had generally but one name. 

The Gillson name is not found in England previous to the 
Norman conquest. The ancestor is said to have come over from 
Normandy with William the Conqueror, A. D. 1066, and from 
the name of Gillson being found in France, gives countenance 
to this. 

Many of the name were located in Baresby County, Leicester- 
shire, where some of the name now reside. The writer has a 
coat of arms sent him by a clergyman of the name, who says that 
his ancestors have been located in Leicestershire and Rutland for 
many generations. Unfortunately the parish records where most 
of them resided do not date back prior to 1 653. It is said that 
the Leicestershire property was originally a park of the ancestor 
who came over with the conqueror. 

The first of the name who emigrated to New England was 
William Gillson. He came from County Kent, England, (prob- 
ably from the town of Feering, as many of the name were 
living there) with his wife Frances and two of his sister's chil- 
dren, Frank and Hannah Damon. He settled in Scituate, Mass., 
in 1631, (the history of S. says 1633). He probably came over 
in Winthrop's fleet in 1630. He was one of the founders of the 



PREFACE. Til. 

church in Scituate, (January 8, 1635), a man of good powers of 
mind and property, only four in the colony paying a higher tax 
in 1633. He built, (says Dean in his history of Scituate,) the 
first windmill in the colony for grinding com, which before was 
pounded. There is an act of court respecting his mill in 1637. 
"It is enacted that ye miller of Scituate shall not take above the 
twelvth part for ye toul for grinding corn." 

He was an assistant in the government of Plymouth colony 
from 1633 to 1638, (with the exception of 1635). In 1633 Ed- 
ward Winslow was chosen Governor, William Bradford Dejnity 
Governor, and William Gillson one of six assistants. (See 
Bailie's Memoirs of Plymouth Col., p. 209). 

In the first tax list of Plymouth Colony extant, January 2, 
1632-3, William Gillson is assessed 12 shillings. Second tax, 
January 2, 1633-4, 1 pound and 7 shillings, paid in corn, at 6 
shillings per bushel. 

His will is dated January 27, 1639, dying five days after, viz., 
February 1, 1639. Inventory of his estate taken by Anthony 
Annable, Henry Cobb and Edward Foster. Amount of the 
estate, 229 pounds 3 shillings and 2 pence. He left his estate to 
his wife Frances, (no child), and bequests to his nephew and 
niece, Frank and Hannah Damon, and kinsman Daniel Romball. 
After the decease of his widow, in 1649, John and Hannah Damon 
were sole heirs of his estate. They were very young when they 
came from England under the guardianship of their uncle 
William. The writer has interviewed several of the descendants 
of John Damon, now living in Scituate, but could not obtain 
any information leading to connect the family of William Gillson 
in England with the ancestors of James Gilson of Rehoboth, or 
Joseph Gilson of Groton, Mass. 

John Damon married Catharine Merritt, June, 1644. There 
is an order of court relating to the estate of William Gillson 
after the death of his widow. "June 8, 1649, at this court, John 
Damon required yt he might enjoy his rights in ye lands of Wil- 
ham Gillson, of Scituate. To clear up the aforesaid rights, 
papers were read and approved. Whereas, William Gillson did 
in his life time require earnestly several parcels of land for his 
accommodation, but being required of him by us the reason of 
his desire for so much land, heing ancient, and having no issue 
of his body to inherit the same after him, his answer was, yt he

hundred and eighty-four pounds five shillings and five pence. 

The deed from Samuel Sabin to James Gilson is dated March 
20, 1667, and acknowledged the 27th of Febniary, 1673. Re- 
corded in Plymouth Land Records, book third, page 333. Wit- 
ness, Nathaniel Paine and William Carpenter. 

The first division of land to the proprietors, of fifty acres to a 
share, was made March 18, 1668-9. The second division of fifty 
acres, February 18, 1684. Third division of fifty acres, October 
31, 1699. Fourth division of fifty acres, in 1703. Fifth divi- 
sion of fifty acres, June 10, 1707. Sixth division of fifty acres, 
July 21, 1714. Seventh division of twenty acres, February 21, 
1726-7. Eighth division of ten acres, April 14, 1735. 

From the proprietors' records it appears they made their own 
regulations, gave their own titles to land, and enacted all their 
laws relative to the ownership and the original conveyance of 
their lands to others. A transfer of a share might be made by 
deed, and recorded in the proprietors' books. 

The first and fourth division of land, and also a part of the 
division in 1707 and 1714, and all of the divisions of land in 
1727 and 1735, was taken by James Gilson in what is now 
called South Attleboro, and was the homestead farm where he 
lived and died, and where his children were born. The second 
division and a part of the third division, as also a part of the 
divisions of 1707 and 1714, were taken in the west part of the 
purchase, now Cumberland, R. I. 

This land was on the north and west of what was called Hunt- 
ing Hill. This hill is located near land now owned by James 
Wetherhead, George W. Clark, and heirs of Nathan Sprague. 
He also took up land on the east side of Abbott's Run, near 
where Orrin Mowry now resides. His lands near Hunting Hill 
were sold by his sons (Nathaniel and James) to Jonathan 
Sprague, as the proprietors' books show. 

Below will be found a few extracts from the proprietor's records. 

** First book of Rehoboth North Purchase lands, page 53. 
Bounds of the lands of James Gilson and his son Nathaniel. 
Likewise, 50 acres of land laid out to James Gilson and Na- 
thaniel Gilson, his son, surrounding his first 50 acres, where his 
house stands, laid out March 8, 1705-6." (The bounds are 
omitted here). 

And immediately following, same book and page, November 



PREFACE. XI. 

13, 1712, it reads, *' Nathaniel Gilson and James Gilson (his 
brother) divided the above said 100 acres of land between them, 
and is butted and bounded as in the record above mentioned. 
And Nathaniel Gilson's i)art is the east part, (bounds given) and 
James Gilson's part is the west part Recorded by Daniel Smith, 
Proprietor's Clerk." 

There are other entries of laud in the proprietors' books, laid 
out to James Gilson, sen., as also to his son James after his 
father's death, which occurred in 1712. It would be superfluous 
to insert them here. Below are given abstracts of several sales 
of land by Nathaniel and James. 

"Bounds of the lands of Jonathan Sprague. First book of 
Rehoboth North Purchase Lands, page 227. Likewise 25 acres 
of land, (be it more or less) bought of Nathaniel Gilson, it being 
his father, James Gilson's, in the former division, near Hunting 
Hill. (Boundaries are here given.) Recorded July 9, 1708." 
And on page 228 it reads, ** Likewise 6J acres on James Gilson's 
right sold to Jonathan Sprague, lying adjoining his own land, 
north from Hunting Hill. Recorded March 13, 1715-6. Like- 
wise, 12i acres sold to sd. Sjirague on sd. Gilson's rights, 6i acres 
in the division grant of 1707, and GJ acres in grant of 1714, be- 
ing his first lot in sd. division, lying adjoining his own land, west 
side of Hunting Hill. (Bounds given.) Recorded March 13, 
1715-6. Likewise i of a share right, bought of James Gilson, 
which by deed at large doth appear, dated Sept. 28, 1708." 

"Lands of Benjamin Crabtree, (page 363). Likewise, three 
acres and twenty rods laid out on the right of James Gilson, on 
the east side of Abbott's Run, it being partly aj)ine swamp. 
(Bounds given). Laid out March 24, 1724-5, (John Foster, sur- 
veyor)." 

"Lands of Israel Woodcock, (page 402). Eighteen acres of 
land bought of James Gilson, lying by his own land, begins by a 
chestnut tree by the river, (Abbott's Run). Recorded January 7, 
1714-5. 

The surveyors were not very exact about the amount of land 
laid out to each proprietor. They called it so many acres more 
or less. The writer knows that the old hoiuestead lot in South 
Attleboro, of two divisions of fifty acres each, contained over 
two hundred acres. 



Xll. PREFACE. 

Now, a word about the change from Oillso7i to Jillson. It 
happened, no doubt, in this way. The majority of the early 
settlers here were of the middle and lower classes in England, 
and at that day very many could not read or write. James^ 
Gilson, sen., left no papers of any kind, and his son James', in 
all deeds, &c., left by him, the originals of which are in the 
possession of the writer, were written by others, which he signed, 
or witnessed, by making his mark. 

In the proprietors' land records the name is written Oilson in- 
variably. The FIRST change is found in the Attleboro town 
record of births of the children of James', in 1709. It is written 
Jelson, a mistake of the clerk without doubt. DanieP wrote his 
name Jelson, after the pattern set by the town clerk (or some one 
else), for some years, and then changed to Jillson. 

Nathaniel' and his wife, in their deed of his share of the home- 
stead to Benjamin Day, dated December 18, 1712, signed their 
name Oilson, but in the proprietors' land records of Dedham 
Gore (now Bellingham), when Nathaniel drew in the first divi- 
sion of land. May 19, 1714, the clerk enters his name Jillson, 
and it is continued so to be written by all of the descendants of 
Nathaniel' and James' (with the exception of some of the de- 
scendants of James*,) to the present time.

JAMES' GILSON, 

(NOW JILLSON,) 

OF REHOBOTH, MASS. 



Jo/mes^ There is no record to be found of his 
marriage. The name of his wife was Mary, and 
they both died a short time previous to the divi- 
sion of the homestead between their two sons, 
Nov. 13, 1712. 

Their tomb stones are in the old burying ground in South 
Attleboro, and are common stones from the fields, plainly in- 
scribed, "L G., 1712, M. G., 1712.'' 

The spot where James first located and built his log house can 
still be pointed out. It was burnt by the Indians in the summer 
of 1675 or 1676, at the time they were scouring the country in 
small bands. He was away at the time, (so tradition saith,) and 
his wife was at a spring near the house, with her child, washing, 
and the Indians did not discover her. If they had, there would 
have been no occasion of writing our family Genealogy — ]N'a- 
thaniel being an infant at that time. She fortunately eluded 
their observation, and escaped with her child to the garrison in 
Rehoboth, a distance of six miles, where her husband found her. 

James Gilson's proportion of the tax to defray the expense of 
King Philip's war, was four pounds eighteen shillings and two

marriage and birth of children there is no record 
extant All that is known of his wife is her 
name, Elizabeth, and that they were married 
between the year 1700 and 1705. He lived for 
several years after his marriage on a part of the 
homestead in Attleboro that has ever since been 
called the Old Field. The spot where his house 
stood can still be pointed out, but a part of the 
land he improved has since returned to its orig- 
inal state of nature. His two sons were probably 
bom in Attleboro, before he removed to Dedham 
Gere, (afterwards Bellingham.) Nathaniel had 
lived in Bellingham but a short time previous to 
his father's death, in 1712. He was living there

at the time the homestead in Attleboro was divi- 
ded, (Nov. 13, 1712). Nathaniel sold his share of 
his father's estate in Attleboro to Benjamin Day, 
the following month, viz., Dec. 18, 1712. This 
deed is recorded in the first book of the Rehoboth 
North Purchase lands, p. 376. It reads, 

"To all persons to whom these presents shall come, Greeting: 
Know ye, that I, Nathaniel Gilson, of the township of Dedham, 
in the Co. of Suffolk, in New England, Cooper, have, for the 
sum of twenty pounds current money, &c., paid by Benjamin

B. Day, fifty acres of land, be it more or less, situate in Attle- 
boro, it being one half part of a hundred acre lot that was form- 
erly laid out to James Gilson, and his son Nathaniel Gilson, viz., 
March 8, 1705-6. The bounds of the whole are the same as in 
1705-6. The easterly part of the 100 acres, being the part here 
sold by me, the said Nath'l Gilson, there being a stake and heap 
of stones, which is the south comer, and a Red Oak and heap of

the incorporation of the town, viz., Dedham Gore, 
May 19, 1714. 

*' Laid out to Nath'l Jillsofi, (this is the first record of tM 
change m the orthography of his name,) seventy-four acres of 
land; thirty acres in the first division, and the ballance in the 
second division. Also, Jan. 9, 1717-18, forty-seven acres in the 
third day'i^ion, joining the land where his house standeth,'' 

There are other entries of land on the Proprietors' 
records, but it is not necessary to mention them here. 
He, as well as his two sons, were large land owners in 
Bellingham and Attleboro Gore, (now Woonsocket and 
Cumberland, R. I.) Some part, and perhaps all of the 
estate originally laid out in Bellingham is no doubt, 
by the changes that have been made in Massachusetts 
and Rhode Island State line, now included in Woon- 
socket, R. I. 

Nathaniel, sen., gave his son Nathaniel a deed of 
gift of a part of his homestead in Bellingham — it 
being sixty acres, more or less — Oct. 25, 1735. Ac- 
knowledged and recorded in Suffolk County Records, 
Nov. 16, 1736. 

I also find in the Proprietors' book of land records, 
of Bellingham, a deed of gift (in consideration of love 
and affection) of nine cow common rights, from Na- 
thaniel, sen., of Bellingham, to his sons, Nathaniel 
and Uriah, dated Sept. 1, 1743. 

The date of the death of Nathaniel's wife, Elizabeth, 
is not known. She probably died previous to 1735, as 
her name does not appear in the deed of gift of land 
to Nathaniel, jun. 

Nathaniel, sen., was no doubt living with his son 

Nathaniel at the time of his death, which occurred 

May 9, 1751. The Jious^ then occupied by his son,

and built nearly or quite 150 years ago, is still stand- 
ing and in good condition. The house and estate has 
always been owned and occupied by the descendants of 
Nathaniel to the present lime, and in the adjoining 
enclosure, near the house, lies buried many of those 
that lived and died on the estate. 

The house and estate is now owned and occupied by 
Ranselier A. Jillson, a great great grandson of Na- 
thaniel.* 

Nathaniel Jillson, jun., his eldest son, was appointed 
administrator of his father's estate. (There is no men- 
tion made of real estate, as he had disposed of that 
before his death, by deed, to his sons Nathaniel and 
Uriah). On the third day of June he presented the

THIRD GENERATION. 



Natlumiel,^ James.* 

2. Nathanielf^ owned large tracts of land in 
Bellingham and Cumberland — common lands — 
that he bought of the proprietors at difft^rent 
times. Seven acres of land laid out to Nathaniel 
Jillson, jun., in 1729, on the rights of Jonathan 
Draper. Also, in 1730, five acres which he bought 
of the proprietors ; and Feb. 21, 1734-5, two acres 
and one hundred and twenty rods of land of Daniel 
Jencks, (in the third division in Bellingham), laid 
out on the east side of the great river (Blackstone) 
west from his house. I also find in Suffolk Coun- 
ty Land Records a deed of fifty-two acres and 
three-quarters of land that Nathaniel, jun., 
bought of David Wilkinson, in the township of 
Bellingham, lying near the great river, dated Jan. 
15, 1732-3. Nathaniel was a prominent man in 
town affairs. At the first town meeting in Cum- 
berland, Feb. 10, 1746, he was chosen one of the 
overseers of the poor. And in town meeting held 
June 1, 1747, he was chosen one of the Town 
Council, which position he held for many years. 
He gave his son Nathaniel a deed of gift of a 
part of the homestead, dated April 27, 1774. On 
said land was a dwelling house, built in 1770. 



JILLSON FAMILY. 23 

The house is in good condition at the present 
writing, and is occupied by one of the grand- 
daughters of his son Nathaniel. His will is dated 
April 27, 1774, from which I will here give 
some extracts : 

" I, Nathaniel Jillson, of Cumberland, in the County of Prov- 
idence and Colony of Ehode Island, in New England, Yeoman, 
Being advanced in years, and drawing near the close of life, but

JOHN DEXTER." 

His will was proved June 3, 1782. His widow, 
Sarah, dying before she had rendered her account of 
the estate, Nathan, her son, was appointed to make 
the final settlement. 

The description and boundaries of bequests of land 



JILL80N FAMILY. 25 

in Nathaniers will are very fully given. The descrip- 
tion is omitted, as it would occupy too much space 
and be of no particular interest to any one. 

Sarah Jillson's will is dated Nov. 4, 1783, in which 
she makes the following bequests, (said bequests to be 
paid within one year after her death) : 

^' To Nathan, twenty Spanish mill dollars and her side saddle, 
and appoints him executor. To Nathaniel and Luke, one Spanish 
mill dollar each. To her daughter, Martha Aldrich, her gold 
beads and silver sleeve buckles. To her daughter, Bhodia Jill- 
son, thirty Spanish mill dollars. And to her four daughters, 
viz., Hannah, the wife of Joab Aldrich, Martha, the wife of

Ballou, all her remaining goods and chattels."

4:S. Willidfit^^ was (in connection with his hro- 
thers) a manufacturer of cotton goods, in Willim- 
antic, Ct. He was for a numher of years President 
of the Cumberland bank, in his native town. It 
is said that he was a person very fond of a prac- 
tical joke. It is related of him that on one of 
his journeys from Cumberland to Connecticut, he 
had occasion to stop for refreshment at a public 
house where he was not personally known. On 
paying his bill, he purposely, (there being quite a 
number of persons present,) produced a roll of 
bills of the Cumberland Bank, minus the Presi- 
dent's signature, signed his name to one of them, 
and gave it to the landlord for the payment of his 
bill. Soon after he left the house the people 
present concluded he must be a forger, or some- 
thing worse, pursued him, (as he supposed and 
hoped they would). He drove a fast horse and 
led them on till he arrived at the place where he 
usually stopped, and was of course well known. 
The pursuing party returned rather crestfallen, 
after being convinced that he was in the habit 
of signing (as President) all bills issued by that 
particular bank. He married, in Wrentham, 
Mass., 12 of 9 m. 1813, Elizabeth, daughter of 
William and Mary (Everett) Pond, of Wrentham, 
who was bom 12 of 2 m. 1791, and died March 
27, 1835.

237 • Capt. AmosJ^ When about the age of 
seventeen he went to Norwich, Ct., and learned 
the trade of stocking guns. He m. in Norwich, 
Jan. 1, 1764, (by Hezekiah Huntington, J. P.,) 
Mrs. Mehetable Hunn, of Norwich, who was born 
in 1739, and died in Norwich, Sept. 9, 1831, aged 
92 years. They separated previous to the year 
1776. She remained in Norwich, and supported 
herself and children by working at her trade, 
(tailoress). After her sons were married, she re- 
sided with them alternately. Amos returned to 
Attleboro, Mass. His name appears as Ensign in 
Col. Christopher Lippitt's Regiment, that was 
raised in January, 1776. This Regiment joined 
Washington's army at New York, and was in the 
disastrous action on Long Island, — also in the 
battles of Trenton and Princeton. 
It seems that Amos did not march with this Regi- 
ment, for his name appears as Lieutenant in Captain 
Gideon Wescott's Company, belonging to Col. Robert 
Elliott's Regiment of Artillery, raised in Rhode Island. 
A Brigade of three Regiments were raised in Rhode 
Island, — enlisted in December, 1776, — two Regiments 
of foot of 750 men each, (Cols. Topham and Crary,)

and one Regiment of Artillery of 300 men, command- 
ed by Col. Robert Elliott. They served three years

148 THE ATTLBBORO BRANCH OF THE 

275. Sylvester,* b. May 2, 1773; d. in West Dummerston, Vt., 
Jan. 30, 1863. 
Samuel,* b. Apnl 18, 1775. He entered the merchant ser- 
vice, as a sailor, at an early age, and was impressed on 
board an English man-of-war previous to the war of 
1812. He ran away several times. Once, when the 
ship lay near the Island of Jamaica, he swam ashore in 
the night and lay concealed in a cane brake for several 
days. He hired a negress to briug him his food, which 
was the cause of his recapture. She, expecting a re- 
ward, informed the Lieutenant where he was, and one 
night he awoke from pleasant dreams by feeling a sharp 
pain in his leg, caused by the point of the officer's 
sword. The Lieutenant sang out, " Sam, aint it most 
time to go aboard?" He made a virtue of necessity and 
went, and in the morning received three dozen lashes. 
The marks of these and others that he received while on 
board the English man-of-war were carried to his grave. 
England was at war with France at this time, and it 
happened that he was in several engagements. Once, 
(the writer well remembers hearing him tell the inci- 
dent,) in cutting out a French vessel of war, under the 
walls of some fort or town, at night, by boarding with 
boats from the English ship, it did not happen to 'be a 
complete surprise, for as Samuel climbed the vessel's 
side a marine struck off the head of the man by his 
side. It happened to be a messmate of his, which ex- 
asperated him so much that after reaching the deck and 
. taking off the fellow's head with one blow of his cut- 
lass, he commenced using it as a football — when the 
Lieutenant advised him to take another head. When 
war was declared between this country and England, he, 
like every other true American sailor, refused to fight 
against his native country, and was sent with others to 
Halifax and confined in Dartmoor prison, where he re- 
mained till the close of the war, when he returned home. 
He had been from home more than twenty years, and no 
one recognized him. It was evening when he called at 
his father's house and asked for a night's lodging, (in a 
disguised voice,) and was refused, being told by his father 



JILLSON FAMILY. 149 

that they were not in the habit of keeping stragglers over 
night; but when he spoke in his natural voice, and said, 
^*MU 1 will Rtay^^ his mother recognized him. He still 
continued to follow the sea, until the death of his bro- 
ther (David). From that time till his death he remained 
at the homestead and labored on the farm. He died 
unmarried, June 14, 1834.

Hornet's third cruise, as one of the squadron of Com- 
modore Stephen Decatur. She returned to New York,

OBITUARY, (by REQUEST). 

"John Gardner Clift, a devoted Christian for nearly forty 
years, fell asleep in Jesus, at his residence at Mystic River, Gt., 
Feb. 18, 1875, aged 67 years and 11 months. He lived in the 
enjoyment of the full confidence of the community and conscious 
favor of God. He has been an honored member of the Method- 
ist church at Mystic Bridge since 1836. He possessed an intelli- 
gent B,nd positive piety, which was aided by reading the Christian 
Advocate, for which he has been a subscriber longer than he has 
been a member of the church. In feebleness, the companion of 
his youth waits for her summons hence, and the happy reunion 
of those that die in the Lord."

descendant of the brave Hannah Dustin, of Hav- 
erhill, Maas., who, with her nurse and infant, 
were taken captive by the Indians, March 15, 1697. 
She was the mother of eight young children, the 
youngest but a few days old. Her husband caught 
the alarm and flew from his labor to save them 
and their mother, who, with her nurse, were 
within doors. Hurrying away his seven eldest 
children, he succeeded in making good their es- 
cape to a fortified house. Meanwhile, the mother 
with her nurse and infant were taken by the In- 
dians, but before they had gone many steps they 
dashed out the brains of the infant against a tree. 
The mother's heart would have sunk, but she 
thought of her surviving children and summoned 
strength to march with the savages towards the 
Canadian frontier. One night, on an island in the 
Merrimac, a little before daybreak, while the In- 
dians were heavy with sleep, she encouraged the 
nurse, and a captive lad, to nerve themselves to 
the work of retribution. They armed themselves 
with tomahawks and struck with convulsive 
energy, until of the twelve sleepers, ten lay dead

PREFACE, 



The writer has given in the following pages all that can be 
obtained from County, Town, and Church Eecords relating to 
the genealogy of the descendants of Joseph Gilson, of Groton, 
Mass., down to the names and date of births of the children of 
the fourth generation. He also has obtained the family records 
of some branches down to the present time; but mfew have re- 
sponded* to letters of inquiry, that a connected genealogy of all 
cannot be arranged. 

If any of the descendants of the Groton branch will take the 
matter up where the writer has left it, and continue the genealo- 
gy to the present time, any assistance that he can give will be 
freely made. 

DAVID JILLSON, 

South AttleborOy Mass, 



JOSEPH GILSON. 



Of the history of Joseph Gilson previous to his marriage, in 
Chelmsford, Mass., the writer can obtain no information from 
County or Town Records, here or in England. He married in 
Chelmsford, Mass., (by Capt; Johnson, of Woburn,) Nov. 18, 
1660, Mary Caper. He removed from Chelmsford to Groton, 
Mass., previous to March 5, 1665-6. At a town meeting held in 
Groton, March 5, 1665-6, the town agreed with several of the 
inhabitants to build a common pound, viz., Joseph Gilson, Joseph 
Page, and Daniel Pierce. I find by the history of Groton, (pub- 
lished in 1848, by Caleb Butler, for which I am indebted for 
much valuable information,) that at the period of King Philip's 
war, in 1675 and 1676, those of the inhabitants of Groton who 
had not taken their families to the garrisons, or block houses, had 
removed to some safer locality. The names of those who availed 
themselves of the protection of the garrisons are given, and as 
the name of Joseph Gilson is not on the list, he had probably re- 
moved to Concord, Mass., in the fall of 1674, or spring of 1675. 
Joseph died in Concord, in April or May, 1676, as I find by the 
inventory of his estate returned from Concord, and recorded in 
Middlesex Probate Records at Cambridge. The widow and chil- 
dren probably resided in Concord, or in that part of the town 
which is now Stow, (incorporated in 1683,) for some time. The 
date of her death is unknown. Two of the sons of Joseph, viz. : 
Joseph and John, returned to Groton, as the births of their chil- 
dren are recorded there. What became of Timothy is not 
known. The records of Groton give the births of two children 
of a Timothy Gilson and wife Percis, viz. : Jonathan, born Dec. 
15, 1726, and Timothy, born Oct. 29, 1730, (perhaps a son of 
Timothy, sen.) Joseph, sen., was one of the original proprietors 
of Groton. The name has ever prevailed in town to the present 
time. They have resided in those parts of the town set off to 
Pepperell and Dunstable, and in the northerly and easterly parts, 
as it is at present. Joseph located in what is now a part of 
Dunstable, set off from Groton in 1793.
