at Lynn among the early settlers. He removed to

caster to visit her sister, the wife of Peter Joslin,
and while there on July 18, 1692, an Indian out-
break occurred and she was taken captive and car-
ried to Canada. She spent four years in captivity
before the government redeemed her. Although
she suffered many hardships, they were such as the
Indians had to share with her, for she was treated
humanely and kindly all the time. She brought back
to her home in Marlborough many of the habits
and customs she had learned from the Indians. The
lovers were reunited and after a few months they
were married, January 23, 1698. She lived to the
