This veteran Captain of the French and Indian
War, born in Woburn, Mass., settled here about

Lexington, he recruited several companies
to form the Third New Hampshire Regiment
which aided General Stark at the Battle of
Bunker Hill in the Revolutionary War. He was
commissioned a Brigadier General following
the siege of Boston and his engagement at
the Battle of Ticonderoga.
