UNDER the direction and with the assistance of the Town 
• History Conunittee, Bev. Moses T. Bunnels, an accom- 
plished genealogist^ was actively employed two years in the col- 
lection of material for the registers of Plymouth families. In 
this work he was a devoted and a tireless laborer. Before the col- 
lection of material was completed, and before any of the registers 
were prepared for the press, his faithful labor was suddenly 
arrested by his death. Many of the pages of this volume are 
memorials to his industry and intelligent investigation. 

In a research for the earlier American generations of the Ply- 
mouth families, in extending the record of the registers and in 
preparing them for the press, I have written over two thousand 
letters, and have labored without interruption two years. 

The constant types of mental and moral forces which have 
characterized many of the families of Plymouth through suc- 
ceeding generations, and the influence for good or ill effected by 
intermarriage, present an interesting study of the law of inher- 
itance. And in the same connection a study of the manners, 
customs, and usages of the early settlers in the vaUey of the 
Pemigewasset, compared with those of the present generation, 
will present abundant evid^ice of the intellectual progress and 
the improvement in the conditions of life which have attended 
the succession of years. 


With tmalloyed pleasure and with grateful and enduring mem- 
ories I freely acknowledge the e£Scient and constant assistance of 
all the members of the Town History Committee and of Louisa 
y. George^ Charlotte E. Dearborn, Martha M. Clark, Helen M. 
Clark, — all of Plymouth* To the New Hampshire State Library, 
the New Hampshire Historical Society, and the New England 
Historic Genealogical Society I am indebted for free access to 
their accumulating volumes of genealogy. It is a part of the 
pleasure attending the completion of this volume that I am per- 
mitted to express my gratitude to Bev. John L. Merrill of Fitch- 
burg, Mass., for his efficient assistance in compiling the Merrill 
Tester, to C. F, Surge of HoUis and Guy S, Rix of Concord 
for polite attention to repeated inquiries. From Dexter D. Dow 
and Russell T. Bartlett, custodians of county records, and from 
George A. Gordon, corresponding secretary of the New England 
Historic-Genealogical Society, I have received many valuable 
favors which have been incorporated in this volume.

received the advantages of the public schools, he started out with the 
eagerness of youth to win his way in the world. At this time the 
railroad had been built through the town, and the whistle and rumble 
of the passing trains incited an early ambition to engage in railroading.

Valley RR as passenger conductor, and subsequently as general pas- 
senger agent, with an office in New York City, from which he retired 
with an honorable record in 1888. Later, for twelve yeara he engaged 
in the coal business, and was an active partner of the firm J. A. Brad- 
ford & Co., of Boston, Mass. In the Masonic fraternity he has attained 
unusual prominence and distinction. He was made a Mason in St. 
Mark's Lodge, of Newburyport, Mass., in 1863, and was exalted in 
Zerubbabel R. A Chapter, New York, 1867. He was Eminent Com-

register of probate, to succeed Jonathan M. Sewall. It is probable 
that this appointment was the occasion of his removal to Plymouth. 
He attended the April term of the court of sessions, and was selected 
by the court to act as the Eing^s attorney, and again at the April 
term, 1775. At the June term of the court of common pleas, 1774, 
he entered five actions. In advance of many who were holding office 
by royal appointment he openly declared for the cause of the Ameri- 
can patriots. With the force of a vigorous mind and the influence of 
a worthy character he earnestly combated a waning sentiment of 
loyalty to the crown. In the fourth provincial congress, which con- 
vened at Exeter, May 17, 1775, and was dissolved, Nov. 15, 1775, 
Abel Webster was a delegate, representing Plymouth, Gamptou, 
Sumney, and New Chester. About the middle of the session Moses 
Dow was admitted a delegate, representing Plymouth and Bumney. 
During the remainder of the session of the fourth provincial Congress, 
Plymouth and Rumney enjoyed the service of two trusted delegates. 
In 1776 Moses Dow was an agent of Plymouth to receive arms and 
ammunition from the State. He removed from Plymouth to Haver- 
hill, 1779. He was a representative from Haverhill, 1781, 1782, 
1790, 1793. Councillor under temporary constitution for the official 
year, Dec. 17, 1788, to June 2, 1784, and senator under the permanent 
constitution for the years, beginning June, 1784 and 1791, and the 
last year he was president of the senate ; councillor, 1785 and 1786. 
He also was postmaster, town clerk, moderator, treasurer, and select- 
man of Haverhill. He was continued in the office of register of pro- 
bate until 1808, when he resigned to accept the appointment of 
justice of the court of common pleas for Grafton County, which office 
he held until his death. In the militia his premotions, running an 
even race with his honors in law and in politics, wore fully earned 
by popularity and efficient service. He rose to the rank of major- 
general and retired frem the service 18 — . Gen. Dow, as appears, 
lived in Plymouth only a few years, and an extended sketch is not 
demanded in this connection. Reference is made to notices, which 
are found in Bench and Bar History of Haverhill, '' Granite Monthly," 
Vol. X. It will exercise the most facile pen of some future biog- 
rapher to equal the admimble portraiture found in his letter declin-

16. JosiAH HoBART, son of Gerahom**, b. Plymouth, Sept 3, 1765. 
He was the first white male child born in Plymouth. It has been 
stated in print in several papers that Bev. James Hobart, son of 
Oapt« James, was the first boy bom in Plymouth, and all the author- 
ities and records assert that he was bom August 2, 1766, when little 
Josiah was nearly a year old. Kev. Grant Powers, who wrote with the 
benefit of fresher traditions, stated with bold confidence that Josiah 
was the first male child bom in the town of Plymouth. Beference is 
made elsewhere to Lydia Webster, dau. of Stephen Webster, who was 
bom June 2, 1765, being the first child bom in this town. Josiah

of the peace 1805, and coroner of Grafton Co., 1799 and 1802. He 
was a deacon, and in 1801, as shown by the records, he sought the 
advice of the church in regard to his preparation for the ministry. 
It is well known that he did preach occasionally, and several of his 
manuscript sermons are preserved, but he never formally entered the 
ministry. He d. May 14, 1812. She d. June 8, 1816. Of their

1. Capt. Edward Johnson, ftom Canterbury, England, came to 
America in Winthrop's fleet, 1630; freeman. May 18, 1631. He re- 
turned to England and with his family sailed again for America, 
1637. He was one of the founders of Wobum and the town clerk 


until 1671. He was a selectman, captain, and deputy to the general 
court many years. In Woburn he was foremost, and in the affairs of 
the colony he was frequently employed on important commissions. 
In 1662, during the union of New Hampshire and Massachusetts, he 
and Major Simon Willard were commissioners to establish the north- 
em boundary of the colony. The initials £. I. at the upper left hand 
of Endicott Bock at the Weirs are the attest of £dward Johnson. In 
the world of letters, as the author of " The Wonder Working Provi- 
dences of Sion's Savior in New England/' he was an American pio- 
neer. He d. April 23, 1672. His wife Sarah d. March 7, 1690. In

4. Noah Johnson, sou of William ^ b. Charlestown or Wobum, 
Feb. 2, 1699. Settled in Dunstable, now Nashua, about 1720. He 
was a sergeant in the renowned company of Capt John Lovewell, and 
was severely wornded in the fight at Pigwacket, and through life he 
suffered from a debility of the hands and arma In answer to his 
petition the General Court of Massachusetts granted him twenty-one 
pounds and seventeen shillings, in consideration of his loss and suffer- 
ing ; in June, 1726, he was allowed thirteen pounds and fifteen shil- 
lings for expenses and medical attendance. In Dec., 1726, he received 
ten pounds, and in 1737 he was granted a pension of fifteen pounds. 

The colony of Massachusetts, then claiming jurisdiction over a 
part of New Hampshire, in 1728 granted a township, first known as 
Suncook and now Pembroke, to the soldiers in the Lovewell expedition 
and to the heirs of those deceased. Being one of the grantees Noah 

872 J0HK80N. 

Johnson removed from Dunstable to Suncook about 1735. He was 
a prominent proprietor and active in forwarding the settlement He 
was the clerk of the proprietors, one of the committee to arrange for 
the settlement of Kev. Aaron Whittemore, a member several years of 
the '' committee to manage the affairs of the plantation.'* He was a 
deacon of the church, and while he remained in Suncook he was the 
most prominent man in the conduct of affairs. He returned to Dun- 
stable, 1746. In the registry of deeds there are found many convey- 
ances in which he appears as grantor and gmntee. In a deed dated 
1745 he is styled **of Suncook," and in deeds dated 1747, 1748, 1749, 
1750, 1753, 1755, 1761. 1762, 1767, 1773, 1777, and 1781 he is styled 
" of Dunstable." So far as tax lists are found he was taxed continu- 
ously in Dunstable until after 1781. It is probable that he removed 
to Plymouth soon after this date. Owning no land and in age exempt 
from a poll tax he was not taxed in this town. The closing years of 
the life of this venemble man were passed in the families of Col. 
Joseph Senter and his son Edward Senter. He d. August 13, 1798, 
aged 99 years, 6 months, 11 days. 

In the diary of Lieut Samuel Thompson, edited by Mr. William 
B, Cutter, and published 1896, appears a clipping from a newspaper. 
The name of the paper is not known. 

" Dea. Noah Johnson, the last of the soldiers in LovewelPs fight, died at 
Plymouth, N. H., iu August, 1798. Among his stories of that famous fight, 
the old man used to tell, that near the close while he was in the act of aim- 
ing his gun at an Indian, a bullet whistling from the woods, entered the 
back of his left hand, and going through it, entered the palm of his right, 
passed up his arm to near the elbow and there lodged. His gun dropped 
to the ground and he was entirely disabled, but did not feel or perceive the 
wound in his left hand. It was a bright, hot day, and almost fainting 
with the heat and thirst, he stooped to drink at a rivulet* The wound iu 
his right hand and arm, which paiued him keenly, prevented his bowing to 
the surface of the water to drink ; he attempted to dip some up in the 
hollow of his left hand, when he discovered the bullet hole in it by the 
water trickling through it. The probability of the truth of the latter part 
of the story may be estimated by those acquainted with gunshot wounds. 
Doa. Johnson was a very respectable old man and often narrated the facts. 
He died at the age of 99. Within two years of his death his sight, which 
for some years had been almost entirely gone, was suddenly restored to 
such a degree that he could see to read without spectacles and even by 
moonlight as he proved to his neighbors and visitors by frequent experi- 
ments. He was bom at Woburn, Mass., in March, 1699." 


In the '' Columbian Ceuiinei;' Boston, Oct 24, 1798, is found : 

"Died. At Plymouth, N. H., Dea. Noah Johnson, iEt 104. He was 
engaged in the famous battle of Lovell at the place now called Fryburg ; 
and had three or four years been the last survivor who engaged in that 
memorable transaction.'' 

In this notice the age is too literally computed, and in Fox's "Dun- 
stable " it is erroneously stated that Dea. Johnson died in Pembroke. 
The name of the wife of Dea. Noah Johnson was Elizabeth, as proved 
by Dunstable town records and by a deed of Noah Johnson to 
William Robertson, dated Jan. 6, 1749. I have not found a record of 
marriage or a record of her deatli. Three children b. in Dunstable. 

i. Elizabeth, b. Oct. 8, 1728. m. Col. Joseph Senter (see). 

ii. NoAH, b. May 27, 1730, was a lieutenant and later a captain in 
Rogers rangers, serving in that perilous service five years. In 
an engagement with the enemy near Lake Champlain in the early 
summer of 17G0, he " was wounded through the body, a second 
shot through his left arm, and a third in his head." A vessel was 
despatched to Crown Point but he died on the pAsage. His es- 
tate was probated in 1761, and in the final settlement it was stated 
that his sister Elizabeth and his father were the only heirs. It 
has been stated erroneously that Noah Johnson, the fatlier, was 
an officer in the French War. 

iii. Edward, b. June 6, 1788, was deceased before 1761. He was a 
soldier in Massachusetts regiments, credited to Dunstable in the 
campaigns of 1756, 1756, and 1757. Fox's ** Dunstable ** says he 
was killed in the service.

6. Jambs Fogg Langdon^ son of Capt Woodbury ^ b. Durham, 
April 27, 1804. In youth he was employed two years by Ebenezer 
Coe, Esq., a merchant and an eminent citizen of North wood, and later 
he was a clerk in the store of Hon. John Harvey, also of Northwood. 
Many who remember Mr. Langdon will testify that if he had pursued a 
mercantile career he would have become successful and distinguished ; 
but there was a resistless element in his fraternal nature that directed 
him to a more impulsive and a closer contact with his fellowmen. 
For thirty years he was a driver and proprietor of stages and mail- 
coaches. B^inning 1823, he drove four years from Laconia to North- 
wood, owning a half interest in the properties of the line. From 1827 
to 1832 he drove for Robert Morse the stages from Rumney to Con- 
cord, making three round trips each week. The next four years he 
was associated with William French. They owned the stages from 
Haverhill to Stanstead, P. Q. In 1836 Mr. Langdon became pro- 
prietor of the stages from Concord to Dover, and from Meredith to 
Dover. He drove the coaches from Concord to Dover. Selling these 
lines, he bought in 1838 the well-remembered line from Haverhill to 
Concord, which he conducted until the building of the railroad. He 
also owned the stages from Plymouth through Franconia Notch to 
Lancaster and Stanstead. In the carriage of parcels and in doing 
errands for the public, the drivers of the stages laid the early founda- 
tions of the express business. When the swifter locomotives drove the 
stages from the road, Mr. Langdon was associated with Benjamin 
Pierce Cheney and Nathaniel White in an express business from 
Boston to Montreal, which was continued until the purchase, in 1881, 
by the American Express Company. Mr. Langdon m. Oct. 11, 1827,
