    Notes 
    • John “owned land in Groton, but it is not known that he ever lived there. He was a caprnter by trade, and lived in the middle district of Watertown, the the center village of Watertown. In 1669 he ran the mill on Charles river, located near where the road from Watertown to Newton Centre now crosses the river. He gave his life for his country in King Philip’s war. He was a sergeant in Captain Richard Beers’ company of Watertown. They marched to the relief of Hadley, in western massachusetts, but were diverted by a report that the Indians had attacked Northfield. On their way thither they were attacked by a large force of Indians and narrowly escaped annihilation. OUt of thirty-six only sixteen esacpted with their lives. Captain Beers was among the slain. Shattuck was chosed to make the lonesome and perilous journey to Boston to inform the governor of the state of affairs and of the result of the skirmish. In ten days he arrived safely at Charlestown, but, while crossing the ferry, the boat, overloaded with horses and other freight, was upset by the waves and foundered. He was the only many drowned by the accident.” [2]
