grain of pure silver or either silver or gold equivalent (if
demanded) upon the festival of St. John the Baptist in
each year. In 1745 his name was on the tax list of the
Church of Engand.

His will is to be seen to-day in Colchester, Conn. He
appoints Mary, his wife, and his son Andrew, his execu-
tors, and he leaves to his sons John, William, and Joseph
all his land lying in Marlboro ; Samuel * has one thou-
sand pounds; his daughters, Mary Carrier, Margaret
Mann, Phebe Case, and Mercy Buell, receive each five
pounds, and Andrew, Jonathan, and Bemslee are to have
the rest of the property divided between them. The will
is probated Dec. 2, 1754. The signature is a mere scrawl
and of no value, — that of a very sick or a very weak man.

Mary Marks' father, Joseph Marks, was from Spring-
field, Mass., where he had a grant of land, on the west side
of the river, Feb. 2, 1685. He was a soldier in Capt. Bull's
company, which was sent to Albany and Schenectady in
November, 1689, to protect the English settlers there
against the French and Indians. In a skirmish, Marks
and Samuel Beamen were taken prisoners. Beamen
escaped, but Marks was carried to Canada, whence, after
a varied experience, he returned in 1692. He was a noted
Indian fighter. Marks' Garrison and Mountain were
named after him.

He soon after removed to Brookfield, Mass., where he
received a grant of 60 acres of upland for a house-lot.
He afterward had an additional grant of 180 acres. His
was one of the fortified houses named in connection with
the Indian wars.

de-camp in the militia. In 1829 he removed to

commissioner for the state of Connecticut. He was

esteemed. He was a contributor to the New England
Review, Cincinnati Chronicle, Illinois Magazine, etc.;
and, though but twenty-four when he died, had already
entered upon what gave every indication of being a
brilliant career. He had no enemies, and was gen-
erally admired and esteemed, and his sudden and
singular death,* not wholly devoid of mystery, was a
loss both to literature and the bar. His volume of
Yankee Lyrics is full of wit and humor, and his verses
entitled My Native Land, Good Night, were at one time
almost as well known as Home, Sweet Home, f
