INTRODUCTORY NOTE 

This volume contains a complete genealogy of the town of Lex- 
ington. Every person whose birth is recorded on the Town or 
Parish Records is included with as much completeness as it is pos- 
sible to obtain, or as is consistent in a town genealogy. In some 
instances, valuable space may be occupied by unimportant data, 
but in no other way can the reader be assured that the work is 
complete. In several instances, the lack of detail is due to the 
failure of those concerned to furnish adequate information, as re- 
quested by the committee. 

In addition to those born in the town, every person well identi- 
fied with Lexington, either by residence or relationship, has been 
carefully considered and included so far as possible or expedient. 

All data published by Mr. Hudson have been verified or cor- 
rected. 

The older Vital Records of the town omit some facts which have 
been supplied from family records or other reliable sources. Occa- 
sionally discrepancies have been discovered between the Town, 
Parish, and family data which cannot be harmonized. In a few 
instances, dates of deaths taken from the Parish Records may in- 
dicate the date of funeral instead of death, but these cannot be 
verified. 

The Histories and Vital Records of many towns have been taken 
as authorities without giving special credit. Bond, " Genealogies and 
History of Watertown"; Savage, "Genealogies of Charlestown " ; 
and Paige, " History of Cambridge," have been used extensively. 
When information has been obtained from some unexpected source, 
the authority is usually specified. 

When a town is mentioned but no State is given, Massachusetts 
is always implied, except in a few cases so unmistakable as San 
Francisco, Gettysburg, etc. When no town is specified, Lexington 
is understood. Towns and cities other than Lexington and States 
other than Massachusetts are always given. 

The exponent following a given name indicates the generation in 
the genealogical line and is also used for identity in cross-references 
to marriages, etc. 

Dates in parenthesis after names are taken from gravestones in 
the cemetery opposite Bloomfield Street. "G.S." following a date 
or other statement always means gravestone inscription. 

"V.R." signifies Vital Records of the town under consideration. 

"State List" signifies "Massachusetts Soldiers and Sailors of the 
Revolutionary War," published by the Commonwealth. 



viii INTRODUCTORY NOTE 

While extraordinary care has been exercised to avoid mistakes, 
it is hardly to be expected that none will be found in such a large 
volume on a subject particularly susceptible of error. Any one dis- 
covering an error, therefore, will confer a favor by reporting it to 
the Lexington Historical Society. 

Acknowledgment is due to Mr. William R. Cutter, of Woburn, 
for planning the revision to meet the requirements of modern genea- 
logical usage, and for the addition of valuable data. Acknowledg- 
ment is also due to Miss Mina K. Goddard for the very painstaking 
and accurate manner in which she has revised the entire manu- 
script and corrected the proof.

2 HISTORY OF LEXINGTON 

2. Joseph 5 Abbott (Neliemiah, 4 Nehemiah, 3 George, 2 George 1 )! 
born 8 June 1727, died 23 June 1794, g. s. at Lincoln. In 1773 he 
bore the title of Ensign. The heirs of Joseph Abbott, 3 Sept. 1794, 
were Joseph, Nehemiah, Abiel and Asa Abbott, Sarah Coolidge and 
Mary Fassett, and the children of Hannah Wellington (Timothy 
Wellington, their father, being guardian). The inventory of Joseph 
Abbott, taken 15 Sept. 1794, shows his real estate to consist of a 
barn and seventy acres of land more or less, lying in Lincoln and 
Lexington, which were appraised at £430. Hudson, writing about 
1868, says, "He resided at or near the Spaulding place in Lincoln, 
which was taken from Lexington, when Lincoln was incorporated in 
1754." This would account for his being called of Lincoln on the 
records. 

• He married Hannah White, born 10 Dec. 1728, died 4 July 
1784, g. s. at Lincoln, daughter of Joseph 2 and Hannah ( ) of

BURBANK 

Col. Sullivan 2 Burbank (Samuel 1 ) was born at Holliston 8 Oct. 
1776, died 30 Sept. 1862, son of Samuel* and Eunice (Kendall). 

He came to Lexington in 1801 and opened a store in the village. 
On the breaking out of the War of 1812 he received a commission as 
a lieutenant of United States Infantry. His duties were at first those 
of a recruiting officer, and in August, 1812, he marched a force from 
Boston to Plattsburg, and during the following winter he was again 
detailed on the recruiting service, and in April, 1813, marched with 
about one hundred recruits by way of Greenbush, N. Y., to Sack- 
ett's Harbor, where he arrived on 29 May, just in time to assist in 
repelling an attack made by the British on that place, under the 
leadership of Sir George Provost. He accompanied the army under 
the American General Wilkinson down the St. Lawrence, in Novem- 
ber, 1813, and was present in the action at Christler's Fields, 11 Nov. 
1813. Later he was stationed with the army at French Mills, and 
still later at Sackett's Harbor and Buffalo. He was in the battles 
of Chippewa, 5 July 1814, and Niagara, 25 July 1814. As one of 
the famous Col. Miller's regiment, the "I will try" regiment, he 
helped storm the battery in the latter action, and there received a 
severe wound in the shoulder, and for his bravery and good conduct 
was honored with the brevet rank of major. 

• Samuel Burbank was a soldier of the Revolution. He held the office of lieutenant at the 
battle of Bunker Hill, and afterwards commanded a company which marched to Rhode Island, 
in the army summoned there under General Sullivan, for whom he named his eldest son. He 
resided at Holliston and Fitchburg, and lastly at Cavendish, Vt. 



80 HISTORY OF LEXINGTON 

Consequent upon the ending of the War in 1815, the army was 
reduced in size, but Major Burbank remained in the service as a 
captain in the Fifth Regiment of Infantry. He served in the peace 
establishment at almost every part of the frontier from the St. 
Lawrence River to the Sabine River. He was stationed at Detroit, 
at the outlet of Lake Huron, at Fort Snelling, at Rock Island, where 
he had the command for about four years, at Jefferson Barracks, at 
Fort Mackinaw, Fort Gibson, Ark., Fort Jessop, La., and at many

100 HISTORY OF LEXINGTON 

His ancestors were all of Concord, and John Chandler probably 
resided in that part of Concord, which was included afterwards in 
Lincoln, when that part was made a town in 1754, since his marriage 
is recorded as of Lincoln. He came to Lexington and erected a house 
on the present Lincoln Street, near his father-in-law's house, where 
he spent the remainder of his days. He held a commission under 
Governor Bernard as "Cornet qf His Majesty's Blue troop." His 
sword, holsters, and a part of his commission are preserved by the 
family, and were in the hands of his grandson, the late Samuel 
Chandler. Though he held a commission under the royal governor, 
he was not false to his native colony. He belonged to the military 
company headed by Capt. Parker in 1775, was one of the board of 
selectmen for a long period, and also an assessor and town treas- 
urer; a member of the committee of correspondence, and for many 
years treasurer of the Ministerial Fund. 

He married 7 July 1757 Beulah Merriam, born 2 Aug. 1730, 
died 9 Feb. 1813, g. s., daughter of Joseph 4 and Mary (Brewer).

the 10th of May, and of another detachment which marched to 
Cambridge on 17 June 1775. 

In 1779 John Chandler, Jr. Joseph Loring, and Burdoo entered 
the marine service under Commodore Tucker, and being on the 
southern coast, they were included in the capitulation of Charles- 
ton, S. C, by Gen. Lincoln, in 1780, and were confined as prisoners 
of war until their exchange. They endured severe suffering from con- 
finement and want of provisions, and after they were exchanged, 
Chandler and Loring, without money, and almost without clothing, 
wended their way as best they could to their native home, depending 
upon the charity of the people, and they reached Lexington in a 
destitute and wretched condition, after an absence of about a year. 
After the close of the war, he was actively engaged in the militia;

GENEALOGIES 103 

Having a hereditary taste for military matters, he entered the 
service of the United States as an ensign in 1814, and repaired to the 
cantonment at Pittsfield, whence he was detailed to conduct a body 
of British prisoners to Canada on exchange, and then returned to 
Pittsfield. Soon afterwards the troops at that place were ordered 
to the Niagara frontier, and arrived at Buffalo the latter part of 
July, the day before the battle of Lundy's Lane. They were then 
ordered to Fort Erie, which was early in August besieged by the 
British, under Gen. Drummond, and kept in a close state of siege for 
two months. During this period there were two desperate battles, 
in which Lieut. Chandler participated: an assault by Drummond 
upon the fort on the 15th of August, and a sortie from the fort on 
the 17th of September, which induced Drummond to raise the siege. 
The American loss was returned as 595, and that of the enemy at 
1700, including nearly 400 taken prisoners. After some slight skir- 
mishes on the Niagara frontier, the army was ordered to proceed 
by forced marches to Sackett's Harbor. On the return of peace, 
Lieut. Chandler was discharged. Though he held a commission as 
lieutenant during the greater part of the campaign he had the com- 
mand of a company, and during his term of service was promoted 
from a third to a first lieutenant. He was subsequently major-gen- 
eral in the militia, and held the office of sheriff of the county ten 
years. He represented the county in the State Senate, and held the 
office of justice of the peace, and trial justice. He was for many 
years an active member of the Middlesex Agricultural Society. 

He married first 29 Oct. 1818 Lydia Muzzey, born 11 June 1799, 
died 12 Aug. 1830, daughter of Amos 6 and Lydia (Boutelle) ; sec- 
ondly 11 Sept. 1834 Abigail Muzzey, born 26 Nov. 1804, died 24

Ash Grove, Mo., 27 May 1880, dau. of Porter and Betsy A. (Marshall) ; 
d. at Duck Creek, Texas, 28 Feb. 1880. He first served in the Civil War 
as captain of a company of Union Home Guards, organized about 1861 . 
This company was attacked at Bennett's Mills, Mo., 1 Sept. 1861, by a 
superior force of rebels. He received a flesh wound and after the dis- 
persal of the company, made his way on foot to Rolla nearly thirty miles 
away. On 2 Mar. 1862 he was commissioned first lieutenant and adju- 
tant of the 7th Cavalry, Missouri Vols. In the fall of 1862 the regiment 
joined the Army of the Frontier. As its assistant adjutant-general he 
was in the battle of Prairie Grove 7 Dec. 1862 and for meritorious con- 
duct was promoted to lieutenant-colonel. From this time to the end of 
the war he was in command of his regiment, his colonel being on de- 
tached duty. After the capture of Little Rock, Ark., he was appointed 
provost marshal of the post of Little Rock, and later provost marshal 
general of this department, which position he held until he resigned in 
Dec. 1864. Children, first b. at Fitchburg, the others at St. Louis, Mo. :

of practical piety, a learned theologian, correct, and pointed, be- 
yond the standard of the day, and a most intelligent, resolute, and 
ardent champion of the popular cause. He was connected by mar- 
riage with the family of John Hancock. To this circumstance no 
doubt may properly be ascribed some portion of his interest in the 
political movements of the day; while on the mind of Hancock an 
intimacy with Mr. Clarke was calculated to have a strong and salu- 
tary influence."

Hastings house which stood on the road to Concord, a back road 
running from the point where the old Viles tavern used to stand, and 
parallel to the ' main- travelled road.' The house where my father's 
family were born is where my seven brothers and sisters were born. 
The confusion between Lincoln and Lexington comes from the fact 
of my grandfather's farm lying in both towns, and the dividing line 
placed the house within the Lincoln boundary, but all the relations 
were all with Lexington."

paign of 1778. He entered the marine service with John Chandler,

5. Jonathan 6 Loring (Joseph, 6 Joseph, 4 Joseph, 3 John, 2 
Thomas 1 ), born 7 Feb. 1749-50, died at Mason, N. H., aged 100. 

He was a member of Capt. Parker's company, and was with it 
upon the Common on the morning of 19 April 1775. He was with the 
detachment which marched to Cambridge on 6 May, and also 
on Bunker's Hill on the day of the battle, and at Cambridge two 
months in the campaign of 1776. His name appears also on the list 
of men who enlisted in Lexington for three years, or during the war, 
among those who served in the Continental Line, or the regular 
army of the Revolution. He not only performed his duty after the 
war had begun, but he performed an important duty introductory 
to the affair of 19 April 1775. On the evening of the 18th, when it 
was known that certain British officers had gone toward Concord, 
he volunteered with two others to go and watch their movements. 
He was taken prisoner and kept several hours, until on the return 
of these officers he was set at liberty near Lexington Common, 
about daylight. 

This family acted a conspicuous part on that memorable occa- 
sion. The church plate was kept at the house of Deacon Loring, 
and fearing that the British soldiers in their vandalism might de- 
stroy it, Lydia Loring, a sister of Jonathan, took the precaution to 
secrete it under some brush not far from the house, and so prevented 
it from being destroyed, or carried off with the rest of the property 
of the family. 

He moved with his family to Mason, N. H. 

He married first Rhoda Hoar, died 22 Oct. 1809, aged 52, daugh- 
ter of John; secondly 13 Feb. 1812 Mrs. Hannah ( ) Danforth.

he resided at that time in the old town, or at the Farms, is uncer- 
tain, but, in 1692, when the North Precinct was organized, he was 
within the territory, and taxed for ministerial land then purchased. 
On the same tax bill is the name of his son, Thomas Mead. Israel 
Mead's name is on the tax bill for the payment of the minister's 
salary from 1 May 1692 to 1 May 1693. 

He was one of the original members of the church organized in 
1696, and of the committee to seat the meeting-house gallery in

tioned sons Thomas, John, Stephen and Ebenezer, and daughters 
Margaret Locke, and Mary and Ruth, and four grandchildren, the 
eldest children of the above Thomas, John and Stephen and Mar- 
garet Locke. He remembered his spiritual teacher thus: "I do 
Give unto M r : John Hancock the Rev d : Pastor of the Church of
