Soldier of the Revolution In Memy of Mr. Robert Abell of Rehoboth who died Jan. ye 5th 1776 in ye 24th Year of his Age

S. A. R. 1775.

"More than one Revolutionary hero who died in Brookline barracks found his last resting-place in Brookline Cemetery. Lieutenant Robert Abell was one; and he and two soldiers of a Connecticut company were probably the men who assisted in the siege of Boston and were quartered in the Benjamin Davis house, much to the discomfort of the excellent housekeeper, who used to tell in after years of their cutting up their rations of pork on her front stairs. The soldiers were subsequently removed to the barracks on Parker's Hill." H. F. W., pp. 49 and 221.

"The names of John and William Ackers, and that of their father, appeared on the petition for the separation of Muddy River from Boston in 1704. In 1744 the Ackers built a fine large house on the corner of Brighton and Boylston Streets, which was quite imposing for a farm-house in those days. In the Revolutionary times it was occupied as barracks for the colonial troops, but the family did not leave it, as many families left their houses but divided with the soldiers and bore the inconvenience. "Mr. William Ackers died in 1794, at a good old age. His son William, the third of the name, married the adopted daughter of Mr William Hyslop. "Mr. Hyslop gave her a great wedding, which was a grand event in the town for those times, and was not only a theme for tea-table chat, but was remembered, talked of, and written about, long after. The sons of this marriage were outlived by their father, who died in 1841, the last male member of this ancient family." H. F. W., p. 311.

"Isaac Adams came to Brookline about the year 1815-16. The history of Master Adams and his methods is a chapter which will shed much light on the progress of Brookline during the last forty years. "He married Miss Martha Washington Hill of Portsmouth and after her death he had her name incorporated into his own by act of legislature, on this wise: 'Isaac Mahtra Wanshongtri Adams.' "He was one of the first schoolmasters in the old brick school house on Walnut Street. William Hyslop gave to the town the triangular piece of ground in the fork of the roads, west of the church, for a site for the old brick school house in 1793. "Requiescat in pace, Master Adams! We trust thou hast found the Great Master more lenient with thee, than thou wert to his little ones." H. F. W., Chap. XII. Pub. 1871.

Footstone Capt. Samuel Aspinwall

In 1727, at the age of sixty-five, the Captain was drowned in Charles River, not far from his farm. One can imagine something of the sensation this event must have produced in this thinly settled town; the loss of so prominent a citizen, the search for the body, - the military procession, for he was buried under arms, - the long funeral sermon, probably in the little church then only ten years built, - the vacant seat in the square pew, "in the northwest corner," - the muffled drums, and the volley fired over the grave. And how it was doubtless the topic of conversation among neighbors when they met for weeks after, and with what superstitious awe they looked upon the fore-runner or "warning" as they probably considered it, that he. should have selected for his morning reading at family devotions the 27th chapter of the Proverbs, beginning, "Boast not thyself of to-morrow, for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth. H. F. W., p. 67.

In treating the smallpox, that dangerous and destructive malady, few, if any cotemporaries had more extensive practice, or were more successful." Dr. Pierce.

Dr. Zabdiel Boylston, F. R. S., son of Dr. Thomas Boylston, first physician of this town. Brother of Peter and Dudley. He was, famous in his day, not only for eminence in his profession in general, but especially for the practice of inoculation for the smallpox, which, though so strenuously resisted by many of his cotemporaries, proved of such essential benefit to society. A memoir of this distinguished man, (who was born in this town, in 1679, bapt. in the First Church, Roxbury, March 1, 1679, under the ministry of the so-called Apostle Eliot) was written by Dr. Peter Thacher, minister of the Brattle Street Church, Boston, and published in the Massachusetts Magazine for December, 1789. In consequence of high attain. ments in his profession, Dr. Boylston was elected Fellow of the Royal Society in London, a distinction very rarely conferred on natives of this country. A plain monument to his memory may still be seen in our Cemetery. Dr. Pierce, p. 21.

"Captain Timothy Corey was in active service in the Revolutionary war, and was one of three who were all that were left of an entire company who died of wounds, sickness, and imprisonment. He and his comrades returned footsore, ragged, and forlorn, from their terrible exposure and hardships. At the time of the battle of Lexington, his young wife with her two little children left the house, as -did many other women of Brookline, and carrying some blankets and provisions with them, sought shelter in the woods, till the fright and danger from the enemy passing through the town were over. "Captain Corey is remembered as an old gentleman who dressed in the costume of the last century, as long as he lived, wearing a 'three-cornered cocked hat.' An anecdote is told of his wife, which indicates her opinion of her husband's appearance. Some one, a stranger, called at his house one day when he was away from home, desiring to see him. Mrs. Corey told him to go down the road and if he met 'a fine-looking, portly man on horse. back, he might know it was her husband.' "Captain Corey died in 1811, aged 69 years. He was buried from the First Church, with Masonic honors. "The two sons of Capt. Corey, afterwards known as 'Deacon Elijah' and 'Deacon Timothy,' joined the Baptists." H. F. W., p. 181 and 182.

All the Coreys of three generations have been farmers and have been considered shrewd, practical men. The two brothers, Elijah and Timothy,, were among the first projectors of the Baptist Church enterprise in this town, and to that purpose devoted time, labor, and money. H. F. W., p. 184.

Caleb Craft resided in Brookline and was one of the most prominent and influential men of his town. He held many public offices. (His name is on the Honor Roll on the tablet in the Public Library, also that of his third wife, Jerusha White.) At the first outbreak of the Revolution, Caleb Craft entered into the service of his country, and remained in the service until 1779. At the time of the Lexington Alarm he marched as first lieutenant of Capt. Thos. White's Company. On the 10th of April, 1776, he was commissioned as first lieutenant of the third company, whereof Thomas White is Captain and William McIntosh, Esq., is Colonel. This commission was signed by the "Major part of the Council of the Mass. Bay in New England." It is now in the possession of William F. Crafts to whom it was bequeathed by Mr. George Craft of Brookline, a grandson of Lieut. Caleb Craft. Among the family papers are a great many military orders and receipts relating to the period of his service in the Continental Army. The earlier ones relate to the service in northern department of Canada; those in 1778 to the transports for Burgoyne's Army, and to service on Dorchester Heights, where he was in command of his company for a long time. Later ones relate to procuring men for service in 1781, 1782 and 1783. Copies of some of these papers are given in "The Crafts Family," page 163. Lieut. Craft lived in the upper part of Brookline near Newton. In 1791 he bought his father's estate on Newton Street, Brookline, and lived there until 1812, when he left it to his son Samuel and removed to the South Street farm. This farm he also purchased of his father, it being the farm given to his brother Samuel by their grandfather, Samuel White, about 1775. He built on this farm in 1805. He resided there the remainder of his life, and afterwards it passed by inheritance to his son Caleb. Lieut. Craft also owned portions of the old Griggs and Chamberlin farms located in that section of the town. He attended church in Brookline, and among the family papers is a receipt for 6 lbs. 13s. 4d. for a pew in "Brooklyn Meeting House" July 80, 1772. In 1824, when he was eighty-two years of age, he had a family tomb built in the Brookline Cemetery, which contains the remains of three generations of the family. The Craft Family.

Caleb Craft, Jr., and his wife Sarah (Richardson) Craft were removed to Walnut Hills Cemetery, Dec. 6, 1881. Charles Craft, who d. March 5,1864, and Caleb Craft, 3d, d. July 30,1875, were also removed Dec. 9, 1881, to Walnut Hills Cemetery.

Samuel Craft married second Lucy Richards Griggs, dau. of Moses and Melatiah Farrington (Richards) Griggs of Roxbury. She was b. Jan. 7, 1787. She died July 24,1875, aged 87 years, at the residence of her daughter Mrs. Henry Loomis, at Poughkeepsie, N. Y. Samuel Craft took a prominent part in town affairs, and was active in establishing the Orthodox Congregational Society in Brookline, their church being built upon his land on the corner of Washington and School Streets, in 1844. He had six children. His photograph and autograph and also those of his wife are given in the "Craft Gen." The Craft Family.

"In the late sixties, my grandmother, Lucy R. Craft, finding the Craft tomb sadly out of repair, bought a lot in which she might eventually be buried herself, in the Walnut Street Cemetery. She was not buried there but with the Loomis family in Poughkeepsie, N. Y. "William and Rebecca, children of the first wife, were buried in Mt. Auburn, and their brother Samuel in New Hampshire. "Finally about 1880 the Craft tomb became so dilapidated that my Aunt Rebecca commissioned a distant relative to have the bodies taken from the tomb and buried in the Lucy R. Craft lot. This was done, positive proof of identification being made by coffin plates. No stones were erected and this is the reason you find the record only and no stones. My grandfather was one of the original members of the Brookline Harvard Church. He and all his descendants spell the name without the s (Craft not Crafts.)" Helen Loomis, New York City.

Lot 50 was sold in 1860 to widow, Betsey C. Warren, for $25. She sold It in 1869 to Mrs. Lucy R. Croft for $65. B. R.

"The elder Capt. Samuel Croft built in 1765 a large house on the north side of Washington Street, in what is now the garden of T. P. Chandler, Esq., a rod or two west of the house. "At the time of his death in 1771 it was owned by his son Capt. Samuel Croft, Jr., who married into the Sharp family. "Capt. Croft's house was a large, square, two-story house with a spacious front yard, well filled with trees and shrubbery. Behind the house was a deep ravine, and here was a spring of cold and excellent water, overshadowed by two very large buttonwood trees." H. F. W., p. 152.

Samuel Croft took a prominent position in the affairs of the town, being honored with many offices of trust and responsibility, and was widely known as Capt. Samuel Croft, Jr., although his father died before he had Attained his majority. Like his father he adopted the "0" in spelling his same. By his will, April 6, 1814, he left all his estate, which was very extensive, to his wife Susanna. He died in Brookline, 1814, aged 63. His widow died in Brookline, February 9, 1821, aged 70. They were without children, and as he was the only son who lived to marry, this branch of the family is extinct in the male line. By the terms of Mrs. Croft's will, made Nov. 3, 1820, she left part of the large estate to her nephew Samuel Craft to his heirs and assigns forever. The Crafts Family, p. 140.

"Perhaps the most distinctly remembered personage of this household, inasmuch as she lived the longest, and was a marked character, was an old colored women named Susy Backus. We say OLD because she called herself fifty, for about forty years, and neither she nor any one else knew her age: but she was a young girl when taken into the Croft house as servant, and here she rendered such service as money cannot buy, during the life-time of her master and mistress. "It has often been said by Brookline people that Susie was a slave, but this was not the case. Her father was a kidnapped African who served a blacksmith in Dorchester, and was called Backus. After the death of the blacksmith, the negro kept on with the business in the same shop, but assumed the more aristocratic and imposing title of 'Mr. Cleveland.' "There was a poor Indian woman living in Brookline by the name of Molly Hill, and 'Mr. Cleveland' relieved his solitude and perhaps added to his importance by marrying her. "Susy was the child of this marriage, but somehow the name 'Cleveland' would not stick to her, and she was always known as Susy Backus. "After a four weeks' illness Susy died in 1863, probably eighty-four years of age, if not older, judging from her recollection of ancient events. The old Croft Tomb in Brookline Cemetery, which had not been unclosed for nearly forty years, was opened to receive the body worn out with a long life of toil for others, - and then closed up forever." H. F. W., p. 155 and 156.

"After the death of Mrs. Croft, Susanna Backus went to live with my grandmother, Mrs. Hancock and lived in her family for nearly fifty years, she was buried in the Croft Tomb, after which by Mrs. Croft's will the tomb was never to be opened again for burial." Mrs. Kilby Page.

"There was an ancient house in the village which stood upon the site of a part of Panter's building, Hunting's grocery store, and Mrs. West's house. It was known as 'Dana's Tavern,' and was kept for many years by Mr. Jonathan Dana. It was a large gambrel-roofed house, with a row of sheds and out-buildings behind it reaching nearly across from Washington Street to Harvard Street. "This tavern was a great resort for country produce dealers, but never had as large a local patronage or entertained as much fashionable company as the Punch Bowl, - as the latter had a large dancing-hall, which the Dana Tavern had not." H. F. W., p. 49.

Jerathmeel Davenport married Susanna Haynes, Nov. 18, 1848. B. R.

"Jerry Davenport, as he was familiarly called, was as much one of the village institutions as the old 'Punch Bowl.' His ruddy face, erect steps, and ready jokes are well remembered, and also his twenty-seven years' courtship, his slyly-planned marriage so quickly detected, and the Calithumpian serenade which followed, making night hideous, from Heath Street to Corey's Hill. Neither will his sudden death be soon forgotten, nor the singular circumstance of his body being taken from the tomb a day or two after burial and set upright in the coffin to be photographed. 'Alas! poor Yorick.'" H. F. W. p. 26.

"Benjamin B. Davis was chorister for the First Parish in 1818. Of the faithful devotion with which for thirty-eight years he led the choir, any attendant upon Dr. Pierce's ministry for that length of time will bear witness. Two daughters of Mr. Davis were members of the choir, they both died young, leaving a childless father to sing sorrowfully without them." H. F. W., p. 256. "Mr. Davis will ever be identified in the annals of the Handel and Haydn Society as one of its most enthusiastic members during the greater part of his long and useful life." H. F. W., p. 49.

"Deacon Ebenezer was, according to all accounts, an excellent farmer, and his estate was adorned with splendid peach and cherry orchards, to may nothing of apple trees in great variety. He also ventured upon an experiment in horticulture, for those times and raised the first muskmelons that were ever offered for sale in Boston market. It was a success and gave him such a notoriety that his portrait was painted with a muskmelon under his arm. The picture was subsequently carried to England, where it is still preserved in a collection. Under it is written, 'An American Farmer.'" H. F. W., p. 42.

Footstone Mr. Edward Devotion.

"Edward Devotion, son of Edward, was a public spirited citizen, and reference to the old town records show that he held various offices of trust for many years. In the church he was for a long period the tithingman. "The principal duty of this officer was to keep good order during divine service, among the children, who sat in rows by themselves instead of with their parents. A long rod was usually carried by the tithingman, with which to touch any delinquent who might become drowsy or mischievous. "The old house in the village (now on Washington Street), was probably built for Edward Devotion, as he died in that house November 7, 1744. "To the Brookline church he left a silver tankard. He also left to the town a sum of money, which at the time of its being received in 1762, amounted to '739 4s. lawful money,' for the use of schools." H. F. W., p. 113 and 114.

Erosamon Drew, whose name is spelled in six different ways in old documents, came from Ireland in his youth. He married Bethiah, daughter of Vincent Druce. The elder Druce, who seems to have been a wealthy man for those times, left his son-in-law considerable property. A most curious and elaborate deed dated in 1683 conveys a tract of sixty-four acres of woodland for fifty-five pounds to Erosamon Drew from "Vincent Drusse and Elizabeth, his wife," in which an imperfectly scrawled V for his name and E for hers, are their only attempts at penmanship.

"The third Thomas Gardner in the regular line of succession bore a prominent part in the affairs of the town, and was chosen first deacon of the First Church.

Rev. James Allen, the first minister of this town, though distinguished in his day, has spelt the name of the town three different ways, in his seven printed discourses extant, namely, Brooklin, Brooklyn, Brookline, and a fourth way in the church records, Brooklynn. Dr. Pierce.

On the 5th of November, 1718, the Rev. James Allen of Roxbury was ordained minister of the church. He preached here more than twenty, eight years. During his ministry one hundred and fifteen were added to the church, "besides forty-four who owned the Covenant without coming to the Lord's table." The baptisms were two hundred and sixty-one. Mr. Allen was called "a pious and judicious divine." There are seven sermons of his now extant which were published during his lifetime, which have been said to "do honor to his head and heart." H.

"John Goddard was born in Brookline 28 May, O. S. 1730, a man of uncommonly extensive observation and with a memory proverbially accurate. He had peculiar facilities for a knowledge of the facts relating to this little town. For he was not only a native, but spent a large portion of a long life in the place of his nativity. He was, moreover, for many years, Selectman, Assessor, and Representative of this town to the General Court. He was son of John Goddard, grandson of Joseph Goddard, one of the founders of the First Congregational Church of Brookline; also father of Joseph Goddard, born April 15, 1761, and grandfather of Abijah Warren Goddard. These five generations of men all cultivated the same farm, and have been members in full communion of the First Congregational Church." Dr. Pierce.

"During the Revolutionary War, Mr. Goddard was a commissary. general for the American Army in this vicinity. "During the siege of Boston, Mr. Goddard was intrusted with the command of three hundred teams, which worked in darkness and by stealth in constructing the fortifications on Dorchester Heights, now South Boston. The absolute silence of the men, the promptness and efficiency with which they labored, and the success which crowned their efforts, were no doubt largely owing to the firmness, courage, and tact of the sturdy patriot in charge. Captain Joseph Goddard, who at that time was a boy of fourteen, was a driver of one of the teams under his father's direction, and often described the event to his children. "When the American army removed from Boston to New York, General Washington was urgent that Mr. Goddard should accompany them, but his large family was a sufficiently strong reason why he should decline such service." H. F. W.

"Mr. Goddard was twice married; his first wife was Sarah Brewer, who lived but two years, then he married Hannah Seaver, the dau. of Nathaniel and Hannah (White) Seaver." Bond's Watertown, P. 369.

"She was a most excellent, energetic, and highly esteemed woman, who brought up a family of sixteen children."

One son, Mr. Joseph Goddard, who settled upon the farm of his father, was during his long and prosperous life a prominent citizen of Brookline. He was a justice of the peace for many years, and was captain of the militia of the town. He married Mary, a daughter of Samuel Aspinwall. Of the twelve children of Mr. Joseph Goddard, several are widely known. Another son, a prominent citizen, born in the old house, was Mr. Benjamin Goddard, who lived opposite the Reservoir. He was a man of much influence, though he never would accept or hold public office. He acquired much wealth and lived to a great age, being over ninety-five years of age at his death. H. F.

In 1843 the Selectmen were instructed to furnish the Congregational and Baptist societies in town each with a gratuitous deed of a lot for the families of the ten pastors, their successors, or their friends, provided the societies would inclose the lots and ornament them with trees, turf, or shrubbery, in a manner satisfactory to the committee; and by the report in 180 it appears the selection was made by the three different parishes in town, and deeds were prepared for delivery when the conditions as to ornamentation should be complied with.

Thomas Kenrick built a house on South Street, which would now be considered a curiosity; it was one story high only, of but two rooms. It was lighted by little windows of diamond-shaped glass in leaden sash, which swung on hinges, like doors. There was no paint within or without and the best room was papered with old newspapers, riot being even plastered. The only ascent to "the loft" was through a trap door by a well-worn ladder, and in a similar way access was had to the cellar. Thomas Kenrick married a Griggs and after his death his widow married Jacob Harvey. An old document, dated 1781, is still preserved, in which eight of the old citizens of the town "promise to pay Jacob Harvey on conditions of his serving as a soldier in the Continental army for the term of three years unless regulerly discharged - the sum of fifty hard dollers and three thousand seven hundred and 50 of the oald Contenantal dollers and to deliver at his hous in said town Four Cords of good Fire wood." This was to be repeated each year or fraction of a year thereafter that he remained in the service. An old receipt for a part of this money signed by his wife "Marey Harvey X her mark" is also extant. The old house became so dilapidated that Mrs. Harvey for the last ten years of her life spent her winters with a married daughter in Boston, but she was always impatient for spring to come that she might return to her country residence, or "hut" as she called it. After the old lady died in 1826, the house was taken down. The land on which it stood is a part of the Weld place. It is a rocky and beautifully wild country place thereabouts, on one side of the street almost covered with forest trees. H. F. W., p. 393-4.

It will be remembered by those familiar with the early history of Massachusetts that Rev. John Cotton, minister of the first church in Boston, was twice married before coming to New England and that his eldest son, Seaborn, born on the voyage, as the name implies, was son of the second wife Sarah Hawkridge, the widow of William Story and said to have been a dear friend of the first Mrs. Cotton (Elizabeth Horrocks). Four years atfer Mr. Cotton's death in 1652, his widow, Sarah, married Rev. Mr. Richard Mather of Dorchester. She was buried in King's Chapel Ground in Boston. Her son Rev. Seaborn Cotton became minister of Hampton, N. H., where he died. He was succeeded by his son Rev, John Cotton who died at Hampton, N. H. in 1710. His wife was Anna, dau. of Thomas Lake, a merchant of Boston, and a niece of Sir Edward Lake, LL.D., Chancellor of the Diocese of Lincolnshire, Eng. Thomas, only son of John and Anna Cotton, came into possession of the part of the Cotton Farm east of Cypress Street and in 1740, after removing to Pomfret, Conn., sold it to Ebenezer Davis. This Thomas Cotton was a farmer and lived in Brookline from abt. 1711 to abt. 1739. His mother had married for a second husband Rev. Increase Mather of Boston, son of the Rev. Richard Mather above named. She died in Brookline of small-pox in 1737, and was buried in the old Walnut Street Ground. Rev. John Cotton of Boston had a son, Rev. John Cotton of Plymouth. His son, Rev. Roland Cotton was minister of Sandwich. After him came Rev. John Cotton of Newton and from him the western half of the Cotton Farm passed to various owners. H. F.

Samuel Philbrick Born Feb. 4th, 1789 Died Sept. 19th, 1859
Eliza Southwick widow of Samuel Philbrick March 21, 1793 October 11, 1891

Mr. Samuel Philbrick, who was one of the pioneers in anti-slavery reform at a time when a man must have had in him the courage and the perseverance of a martyr to dare identify himself with so unpopular a cause, was a worshipper at the First Church for years. He was born and educated among the Friends or Quakers, but did not identify himself with them in later years, though his marriage was consummated according to the peculiar forms or usages of that sect. Mr. Philbrick never united with the Unitarian Church, as a member. He was a man of wealth and influence and occupied a central pew in the church. He was the friend of Garrison, May, Phillips, and others of the leading abolitionists of those days, and his house was one of the way-stations of "the underground railroad," which here and there gave brief shelter and rest for the fugitives, on the way from Mason and Dixon's line to Canada. Mr. Philbrick outlived much of the odium attached to the name of "abolitionist," and saw their ranks swelled by thousands after the rendition of Anthony Burns. He died, however, in September, 1859, before the triumph of the principles for which he had sacrificed convenience and popularity. In less than ten years from that time his son was supervising the industries and economies of the freedmen of South Carolina without molestation or hindrance. H. F. W., p. 270-274.

Mr. Pierce was a native of Dorchester, and a cousin of Rev. Dr. Pierce, and long a member of the choir of the First Church. Whether living in a house which had once served the Revolutionary soldiers as a barrack inspired him with patriotic ferver or not, we do not know, but when he was seventy years of age he walked to Concord, Mass., and back, on the occasion of the laying of the corner-stone of the battle monument, to hear Webster's oration, a distance of eighteen miles each way. His widow, a much beloved lady of the olden style, survived him several years. Mr. James Pierce also played the bass-viol, as well as sang in the choir of the First Church, he took his little daughters into "the singers' seats," when they were so small that they were obliged to stand on crickets to bring their heads above the balustrade. One of them, who was afterwards the wife of Charles Stearns, Jr., was for years the leader of the female voices. H. F. W., p. 23-256, cor. by C. H. Stearns.

Dr. Pierce was graduated, holding high rank in his class, at Harvard College in 1793. He was for the two succeeding years assistant Preceptor at Leicester Academy. In 1795, he commenced the study of theology with Rev. Thaddeus Harris, of Dorchester. In 1797 he was invited to fill the vacancy in the Brookline Church caused by the death of Mr. Jackson. He held at that time a tutorship at Harvard College. He was ordained pastor of the Brookline Church, March 15, 1797. In October of the following year he was married to Abigail Lovell, of Medway, who had been one of his pupils at the Academy. She died in July 1800, leaving an infant son, who lived but three years. In 1802 Dr. Pierce was married to Lucy Tappan of Northampton, a lady beloved for her quiet virtues, and who lived to a venerated old age. H. F. W., p. 251.

Mrs. Poor as the daughter of Dr. Pierce and sister-in-law of Dr. Hedge, was a person of especial interest. Mr. Poor I always think of as possessing a quite unusual combination of qualities. To know Mr. Poor aright, one should have seen him on "his native heath." It was once my happy privilege to spend some days with him among the scenes of his boyhood in Andover, Maine. There all the sweet. Rego of his nature came forth in full strength. He loved those great hills passionately, and especially it was his delight to follow up and explore the dim recesses of a mountain stream. Could I visit that place again, I think I should know that he was with me, and that his delight in its natural beauty was still undimmed. H. N. B., p. 13.

Soldier of the Revolution. Phineas Lyman Tracy, Adjutant.

Several of our main guard were killed by cannon shot. Our adjutant, Phineas Lyman Tracy, from the town of Norwich, died soon after we calm into camp. - The day following his departure we all turned out to attend his funeral; we carried him three miles to the burying ground in Brooklyn. The order of march was, arms reversed, drums muffled, and pipes playing the tune called "Funeral Thoughts." Just fifty years afterwards, out of respect to the memory of this young man, I went to view the spot and find the grave in which he was deposited, but found nothing by which it was to be distinguished from many others.
