CONNECTICUT

HEBRON

The founder of the Connecticut line was John, only-
child of William (II), the son of our earliest ancestor,
Andrew (I). He was but ten months old when his
father was killed. He is mentioned in his grandfather's
will and is left "tenne pounds is paij." The following
accoimt of the death of William is given in a letter which
was written Aug. 14, 1696, by Capt. Christopher Osgood,
head of the militia in Andover, to express his fear that
the men who had been called away to serve in the East
should have been left at home, where they were sure to
be needed, as the force on hand was insufficient to cope
with the enemy should there be an attack; the river, he
said, was low, and could easily be crossed by the Indians,
and he wished men from the "inmost towns" sent to
Andover for their present help. " For we are in expecta-
tion every hour of an attack by a great body of the
enemy that hath been discovered this day, we are in-
formed, between Exeter and Haverhill upon the march
towards Haverhill and Andover. We have therefore no
other help under God but to make as speedy application
to your honour for present relief which we doubt not
but that your fatherly pity towards us will appear in
preferring the most humble addresses of him, that is in
behalf of our town.

"Your honours most humble petitioner

"Christopher Osgood of Andover."

Another paper pasted upon the first is as follows :
" Our Major being at this instant at Newbury I account
it nextly my duty to give your honour of some mischief
done upon us by our enemy, which in brief is as follows.
Yesterday in the afternoon William Peeters belonging to
Samuel Blanchard's garrison, went from the garrison to
his house to fetch up his horse and another man whose
name was hoyt was with him and as we conceive by the
effect, went both into the house which was about half a
mile from the garrison just upon Billerica Road " [he wrote
it Bildrecky] "in an open plain place and were both sur-
prised by the enemy and killed without any shooting so
that no discovery neither of the enemy nor of the tragedy
wrought by them till about sunset which were then dis-
covered by two persons going to the house to look after
them because of their tarrying longer than was expected
who found them both killed and scalped and lying in
their blood within the house and our enemy undiscovered.
Sir, I am sorry that I have the occasion to trouble you
with reading such news. Your honours most humble and
obedient servant

"Christopher Osgood. *
