    Gender Male 
    History 1675  Worcester, Worcester County, Massachusetts Find all individuals with events at this location  [1, 2
    According to Jennings (1899) "The tradition is that he was with the earliest settlers of 'Quinsigamond' (Worcester); if so, he was driven off as were the others, by the Indians in 1675. The family may have tarried for a while in Marlborough, but probably during most of King Philip's War were in Bridgewater, as that was considered more secure from the attacks of the Indians than the newer towns.

    Possibly they may have lived a short time in Mendon, but on the second attempt to settle Quinsigamond, now named Worcester, in 1684-5 we find him and his family located in the vicinity of what is now called Quinsigamond Lake. They were, however, so troubled by the raids of the Indians, that them became discouraged and removed to Bridgewater about May 1, 1693, for the town records show that at this date they were 'warned out'"
