which formerly stood at the foot of the hill on the westerly side of Great
Meadow Brook, and had the care of a grist-mill then standing on the south-
erly side of the road, but demolished long ago. He was simple and shiftless,
and became a state pauper. He seems to have died in 1789, when an account
was allowed for the expense of his last sickness and funeral. His w. Hannah
d. 17 Jan. 1824, in extreme old age, — estimated on the town record at 95,
though it is doubtful whether any one knew with certainty. In her day, most
of the spinning and weaving was done in families; she could neither spin nor
weave, when I knew her, but she would card wool, or comb worsted, for spin-
nin2f, from morning until night. She thus made herself useful, going from
house to house, as lier services were required, until she was disabled by the
infirmities of aije, when she also became a public charge.
