them were from that part now Lakeville ; but at this
date it is so difficult to separate them, the history of
this company will be embraced in and considered a
part of the history of Middleboro*.

The Whigs having come into power in the province
of Massachusetts, by an act of the Legislature caused
all military commissions that had been conferred
by Governor Thomas Hutchinson to end upon the
19th day of September, 1775, aud at the reorganiza-
tion of the Fourth Company of the local militia of
Middleboro', May 9, 1776, Lieut. Job Peirce was
promoted to captain, Sergt. Josiah Smith to lieuten-
ant, and Samuel Hoar made second lieutenant.

At the Rhode Island alarm, in December, 1776,
the local militia of those parts of Massachusetts con-
tiguous to and borderiug upon Rhode Island were
drawn upon to reinforce the patriot army, then seek-
ing to prevent the invasion of Rhode Island, and the
Fourth Company, as part of that reinforcement, were
called out upon the 9th day of December, 1776, and
repaired to the seat of war.

This " Secret Expedition/' so called, was an attempt
of the Americans under Gen. Joseph Spencer to rescue
Rhode Island from the occupancy of the British
army. It was arranged at a considerable expense and
with fair promises of success. The patriot forces were
assembled at Tiverton, near the present stone bridge,
and had actually embarked in their boats to cross over
to the island of Rhode Island to surprise the enemy
when Gen. Spencer prudently countermanded the
order, as he ascertained that the British commander
was apprised of his intentions, and seeiug no effort
on the part of the English to oppose his landing ap-
prehended some stratagem that might be fatal, and
such was indeed the fact, as information subsequently
obtained most clearly served to prove.

Col. White's sword was shot off in battle by au
enemy's bullet. In fact, Col. White acquired a con-
siderable celebrity as a legislator as well as brave
officer, representing the town of Rochester for nine-
teen sessions of the General Court. That town as a
token of its love aud respect erected a stone to mark
his yrave, which monument bears the following in-
scription :

" Memento Mori.

Sacred to the Memory of
Col. Euknlzlii White,

Who .lied March 1S04, let. SO.

Hem; l'J times chosen to represent the town of Rochester in
the General Court, in 14 of which elections he was unanimously
chosen.

As a tribute of respect for his faithful services the Town erected
this monument to his memory."

The only field-officer in the patriot army of the
Revolution whose place of residence was in that part
of Middleboro' now Lakeville, was Johu Nelson, who,
as a major, served both in Rhode Island and at Dart-
mouth.

Naval Service.— William Rouoseville Peirce, of
that part of Middleboro' now Lakeville (a son of
Capt. Job Peirce), shipped on board an American
privateer some time during the progress of the war of
the Revolution. That privateer was captured by a
British man-of-war, and the crew carried as prisoners
to England, and there coufiued till the independence
of the Uuited States had been secured and peace was
proclaimed.

The War of 1812.— Lakeville, then a part of
Middleboro', furnished quite a number of men who
performed duty in the "coast guard" stationed at
New Bedford and Plymouth, but at this time it is so
difficult to separate the Middleboro' from the Lake-
ville men, that it is deemed advisable to present all
with the military history of Middleboro', to which the
reader is referred to learn who, then residing in what
afterwards became Lakeville, participated in the de-
fense of our couutry in the last war with England.

War of the Great RebeRiou.— The following is a
record of the services of citizens of Lakeville in the
war of the Rebellion :

Lieut. James M. Sampson, of Company C, Fourth
Regiment of Infantry, was a son of Capt. Abiel M.
Sampson and wife, Bathsheba Nelson, and born at
North Providence, R. I., June 19, 1834, but at the
commencement of the war of the great Rebellion he
was living in Lakeville, Mass., where he had been
elected to the office of town clerk, town treasurer,
and collector of taxes for the years 1859, 18G0, 1861,
and 1862, and was holding all these responsible po-
sitions, when, in August, 1862, he volunteered as a
private soldier in Company C of the Fourth Regi-
ment Massachusetts Infantry, to do which he was
obliged to, and most cheerfully did, resign the civil
positions before enumerated.

Sept. 13, 1862, he was commissioned as a second
lieutenant, and was mustered into the United States
service Sept. 23, 1862, and put upon duty in a camp
of preparation and instruction that had been located
in Lakeville, where he remained until the 27th of
December, 1862, when, with his company and regi-
ment, he left for the Department of the Gulf, arriving
at the city of New Orleans Feb. 7, 1863.

He soon after participated in the expedition
against Port Hudson, and was in the battles of Bis-
la°nd, fought Aprill2, and Franklin, April 14, 1863.
Lieut. James M. Sampson, while engaged in the
defense of Brashear City, was, upon the 23d of June,
1863, taken a prisoner, and by the enemy carried
several hundred miles to a place of confinement at
Camp Ford, so called. July 9, 1864, he was paroled
for exchange, and marched to Shrevesport, La., and
embarked on board a steamer, and thus taken to the
mouth of the Red River, where, on the 22d of July,
he was exchanged, having been a prisoner of war about
thirteen months. He was honorably discharged from
the service Aug. 9, 1864.

Aug. 26, 1876, Lieut. James M. Sampsou was
mustered in as a comrade of E. W. Peirce Post, No.
8, Grand Army of the Republic, and for the years
1880 and 1881 held the office of adjutant in that
organization.

He was in 1883 re-elected to the offices of town
clerk, town treasurer, and collector of the taxes at
Lakeville.

Naval Service. — Jones Godfrey, of Lakeville, re-
ceived the appointment of acting third assistant engi-
neer in the United States navy, and on the 2<Jt.h of Oc-
tober, 18C6, was ordered to the Naval Academy in An-
napolis, Md. He had previously been a student in the
public school at Taunton, and there graduated at the
high school in 18C5, and entered the engineering
class of the Lawrence Scientific School of Harvard
University.

In the summer of 18b'7 he was placed upon duty
at the naval engine workshop, at Washington, D. 0.
He graduated at the Naval Academy in June, 1SG8,
and was immediately appointed a third assistant engi-
neer, and ordered to duty on board the Uuited States
steamer "Sagamore," that, under the command of
Richard W. Mead, went on a cruise to the Pacific
coast. Mr. Godfrey also served on board several
other armed vessels, and on the 2d of June, 1869,
was promoted to second assistant engineer, and on the
1st of January, 1870, ordered to duty on board the
" Saginaw," that, upon the 28th of October, ran upon
a reef and became a total wreck. In 1872, Mr.
Godfrey joined the " Nautasket," at San Domingo
City, and made a cruise among the West ludia
Islands. His last cruise was on board the United
States steamer " Kansas," employed in carrying a
surveying party to Greytown. He then returned
home, and commenced the study of law, attending
the lectures of the Boston University Law School, and
at Plymouth, at tho Ootobcr term of the Supremo
Court in 1877, was admitted to tho bar.

were, from 1GG9 to 1727, a period of about fifty-eight
years, enrolled in the first and only existing military
company in Middleboro'.

Tliis company was. in 1727, divided and made to
constitute two companies, thenceforth known as First
and Second Companies in Middleboro'. In that divis-
ion all of what is now Lakeville and a part of present
Middleboro' fell within the limits of the Second Com-
pany. A few years later the militia of Middleboro'
were divided iuto three companies, and ere long into
four companies, and when in four companies part of
the militia in what is now Lakeville continued to be
embraced in the Second and the remainder were in
the Fourth Company.

This Fourth Company, about the beginning of the
war of the Revolution, was divided into two com-
panies, the members of both of which resided within
the limits of what is now Lakeville, and one of these
came to be familiarly known as the " Beech Woods
Company," and the other as the " Pond Company."

The names of those gentlemen residing within the
limits of what is now Lakeville who held commis-
sions in these companies were as follows :

First Company. — The earliest history of this
company is so obscure that it is now perhaps impossi-
ble to learn just who iu what is now Lakeville, save
Ichabod Southworth, did hold a commission in the
First Company of Middleboro' while that organization
embraced all the militia of those tracts of country
now Middleboro' and Lakeville. But the evidence is
clear and conclusive that in March, 1716, new com-
missions were issued, thus making the officers of that
company then to have been Joseph Vaughan captain,
and Ichabod Southworth lieutenant, and the latter
doubtless resided within the limits of what is now
Lakeville, and at the division of the First Company,
in or about 1727, was made captain of the Second
Company. The following named persons residing in
that part of Middleboro' that became Lakeville, held
commissions in the Second Compauy :
