    Notes 
    • Joshua and Hanna resided in Friendship, ME. According to Ruth Gardner Hall: “Both scalped by the Indians. Two sons (possibly Benjamin and Joshua) taken into captivity. Other children at the fort. Joshua grinding corn did not hear the warning shot. Did not fear local Indians because he had saved the life of the chief when he was drowning—having fallen through the ice. Meletiah hid under bed with Elisha. When Elisha cried, she crept out and dashed toward the fort. Indians leaving, saw her and started in pursuit. One gave her an ugly wound—supposed to have severed two lower ribs from spine. A soldier from the fort rescued her. Some claim 10 children, some 11. If 11 children, Joshua, his wife and son Winslow d in 1758 k by the Indians; if 10 children d in 1756.” [1]
