Brk., and on the southerly side of the brook at the head of Ditch Meadow,
then in Brk., but now included in New Braintree. About 1730 he removed
to the place long known as the " Perez Cobb Farm," ^ on the road to Rutland,
about a mile east of the Furnace Village; his farm embraced a part of the
Indian fort, or stronghold, at Winnimisset. After the settlement of Hk. he
