1729, Feb. 25, the first meeting of settlers to locate at
Contoocook, N. H., was held in Andover, Mass. 1732,
the second meeting was held in Newbury, Mass. 1733,
William was one of the settlers. 1734 (spring), he was
living in Contoocook (now Boscawen), N. H. 1734, he
was one of the first grantees of Contoocook. 1743, Nov,
29, he was a soldier at Contoocook, N. H. 1747-48, Jan.
2, he was a petitioner for a grist-mill at Contoocook,

A muster roll of the company (near Manchester, N, H,)

346 New Hampshire

in His Majesty's service, under command of John Goffe,
Capt., employed in scouting on the frontiers of the Prov-
ince of New Hampshire, Anno Domini, 1748. William
Peters, Sergt. Time of discharge, Oct. 3, 18 weeks, 3
days service, whole wages, 13-16-5.

1752, July 13, his name appears on the proprietors'
grant of Henniker. 1753, July 18, the proprietors went
to Portsmouth and drew their lots. His lot was
numbered No. 76. 1753, July 18, the petitioners of
Henniker, being mostly from Londonderry, etc., met in
Portsmouth, N. H. Hopkinton, or No. 5, as it was called,
was settled mostly from Hopkinton, Mass.

This William is unplaced, but the mention of Andover
is most significant. He was probably the William who,
in Haverhill, Mass., Sept. 16, 1742, married Ruth Standley.
In that case Hannah would be a second wife. This would
account for the names of Elizabeth, Ruth, and Mary. A
William was in garrison with Sebome in Jonathan East-
man's house in the West Parish, Concord, N. H., and was
probably Sebome's son, or brother of Sebome of the next

1138 IV. Ohadiah, (probably youngest) child of Se-
bome, and Mary (?) , bom in

(1725 ?), died at Pennacook, N. H., Aug.
II, 1746, being killed by the Indians. Was probably

1744-45, he was in the expedition against Louisburg,
in a company commanded by Capt. Eastman.

1746, Aug. II, Monday, he, with others, set out from
Rumford (now Concord), for Hopkinton, N. H. He at
the time was a member of Capt. Melville's Co. of Mas-
sachusetts, enrolled in the Rumford company under
command of Capt. Nathaniel Abbott ; his name is thus
mentioned on the muster roll, and his death is so re-
corded. His father and family lived near Eastman's fort.

to which the party were going when they were attacked
by the Indians. They, knowing that there were Indians
in the vicinity, were using all due care; two were on
horses, the others on foot, all armed, but, not at all ex-
pecting an attack, they marched on leisurely.

Obadiah was one of those on foot, and had gone some
distance beyond the others, into a hollow about one and
one half miles from Concord; here he set down his gun
and awaited the approach of the others. The Indians,
thinking themselves discovered, rose from their hiding-
place, fired, and killed him, shooting him through the
head. At this moment the rest of the party, with Jona-
than Bradley at their head, came over the hill, and,
seeing the fate of their comrade and their own danger,
Bradley cried out, " Fire, and follow on !" and then rushed
down upon them. But the savages were too strong for
them, being twelve to one. Samuel Bradley was shot
down in the road. To Jonathan Bradley they offered
quarter, having known him, but he refused, his heroic
spirit thirsting to avenge his comrades. They then de-
spatched him with their tomahawks; two others, John
Bean and John Lufkin, were fired upon, ran four or five
rods, fell, and expired. The rest were captured and
carried to Canada as prisoners.

The following is a report of one of the company who
escaped: "Daniel Oilman says that Lieut. Bradley, with
six men, was going about two and a half miles from Rum-
ford to a garrison, on August 11, 1746, when they had
gone about one and one half miles they were shot upon
by about thirty or forty Indians if not more, as it was
supposed, and killed down dead Lieut. John Bradley,
Samuel Bradley, John Lufkin, John Bean, and Obadiah
Peters. These were killed dead on the spot, and the most
of them were stripped, two of whom were stabbed, cut
and disfigured, it was supposed that there was an Indian

348 New Hampshire

killed when they had the fight for the said Oilman who
made his escape, saith that he was about sixty rods be-
fore those men, when they were shot upon, and he says
the Indians shot three guns first, and as he thought that
the party had shot at a deer, he ran back up a hill about
forty rods, so that he could see over upon the other hill
where the Indians lie and shot upon the men, and. when
he came upon the hill so as to see over upon the other
hill he heard Lieut. Jonathan Bradley speak and say,
' Lord have mercy upon us, fight ! ' In a moment his gun
went off and there was more of the party also who fired,
then the Indians rose up and shot a volley and ran out
on to the path making all sorts of howling and yelling,
and he did not stay long to see it, he said it was supposed
that John Lufkin was upon the front and Obadiah Peters
in the rear, and they were shot down the first shot, and
they were in the path about twelve or fourteen rods apart,
and Samuel Bradley was about twelve feet from Oba-
diah Peters." This account is attested to as a true copy
by the clerk of the county. The General Assembly passed,
November 19, 1747, the following resolution: "Voted
that there be paid out of the money in the public treasury
;;^75 to those that were killed, heirs or legal representa-
tives." The heirs of Obadiah Peters received £"] los.
The initials of those massacred were inscribed on a large
tree standing near the spot, which remained for a number
of years, until some person cut it down. In 1836, August
22, a monument was erected at the place of the massacre,
and bears the following inscription :

" This monument is in memory of Samuel

Bradley Jonathan Bradley Obadiah

Peters John Bean and John Lufkin

who were massacred Aug. 11, 1746, by the In-
dians. Erected 1837 by Richard Bradley, son of the
Hon. John Bradley, and grandson of Samuel Bradley."

The New Hampshire section entitled Andrew is ex-
tremely short and fragmentary. That the first Andrew
therein is the son of John, oldest son of our earliest ances-
tor Andrew there can be no doubt. But beyond this, and
a few glimpses of him later, all is darkness. The name of
John would naturally go down in this line, but there is a
confusion of Johns. In the Gloucester, Mass., records is
the marriage of John Peters, sojourner, to Mary Sweet of
Ipswich, Jan. 5, 1770. This is probably a descendant of
our Andrew and, presumably, the John whose record is
as follows :

It seems possible that the first John was son of the
second :

In the Miscellaneous Papers in the department of the
secretary of state, Concord, N. H., vol. i. : "Aug. 18,
1778, John Peters of Concord, bill for £/\.-6-6 for nursing
Timothy Johnson, in the state service in July, 1777, son-

Andrew 355

in-law of John Peters." Johnson was in Capt. Peter Kim-
ball's Co. Col. Stickney's Reg., in Stark's Brigade,
marched to Bennington, was taken sick, and was cared
for by John Peters who was in the same company. The
paper is addressed "To The Hon'ble the Council and the
House of Representatives of the State of New Hamp-
shire convened at Exeter, Aug. 18, 1778." Thus it is
evident that the second John is considerably older than
the first John, who was bom in 1745.

the war, was reported deserted Feb. 27, 1778, and Sep.
25, 1780 ; was from Sturbridge, Mass., and is in one place
