Other Places of Interest.

147 SENTRY HILL ROAD. The first road passed over

Sentry Hill back of the house now owned by Gen.
Harland and came out in front of the house now
owned by William H. Palmer. Four elm trees
\n front of this house stand two on one side and two
on the other side of this old highway.

148 MILL LANE (Lafayette Street). Was for many

years the only road from the town plot to the old
landing below the falls.

149 OLD LANDING PLACE. The first settlers landed

at the head of navigation on the Yantic, below the
falls, and that place for many years was the principal
landing place.



NOTES ON PERSONS AND PLACES. 235

150 LEXINGTON ALARM. In front of the Christopher

Leffingwell shop No. 82 near Sentry Hill stood a many
branched elm tree, under which it is said the troops
assembled, the day they marched to Lexington.

151 BEAN HILL (at the west end of the Town Plot).

Tradition says that before the settlement hungry and
weary prospectors discovered pots of beans deposited
in the earth which furnished them with a substantial
meal, and that in remembrance thereof the inhabi-
tants and their descendants to this day, all over the
world, eat baked beans for their Saturday night
supper.

152 OLD WHIPPING POST. The old whipping post,

pillory and jail stood near the south corner of the
parsonage lot.

153 MOHEGAN TURNPIKE. The road to New London

was laid out as early as 1670, but was little better
than an Indian trail. In 1792 it was made a turnpike,
the first in the United States, the funds for its im-
provement being raised by a lottery granted for the
purpose by the Legislature.

154 UNCAS MONUMENT. To Uncas, "the ancient

friend" of the English people, sachem of the Mohegan
Indians, who sold the original town plot to the first
proprietors, and who died about 1682, the monument
on Sachem street was erected in 1842 by the ladies
of Norwich. Others of the royal family were buried
near by. The gravestone of his descendant, Samuel
Uncas, one of the last of the sachems, who died
before the Revolution, is preserved in the Slater
Memorial Building with this inscription:
"For Beauty, wit, for Sterling sense,
For temper mild, for Eliquence,
For courage bold, for things Wauregan,
He was the Glory of Mohegan,
Whose death has Caused great lamentation,
Both in ye English and ye Indian Nation."

MIANTONOMO MONUMENT. (See page 30.)

Historians of Norwich.

FRANCES MANWARING CAULKINS. Born in
New London 1795 ; died there in 1869. Her ancestry
is traced to the early settlers of Plymouth, Mass. Her
early life was spent in Norwich where she was a pupil
of Lydia Huntley (Mrs. Sigourney). For fifteen
years she was a highly successful teacher and
manifested unusual talent for poetical and prose
writing. Her "History of Norwich," published in
1845, was re-written and extended in 1865 to a
volume of 700 pages. The fruits of her indefatigable
researches are household words with all who are
interested in the history of the town.

MARY E. PERKINS. Daughter of Edmund Perkins,
a brilliant lawyer, and granddaughter of Francis
Asher Perkins, one of the grand old men of Norwich,
will be held in grateful remembrance for her invalu-
able historical investigations long after the last of
"The Old Houses of the Antient Town of Norwich,"
shall have disappeared from the face of the earth.
