Reminiscences of Old Dunstable [Nashua] with Sketches of Events and Persons of the Early Times of That Town

By Hill, John B(ancroft)

Nashua, New Hampshire: E. H. Spalding, 1878. furthur subtitled: also Genealogical Tables of Portions of the Families of Henry Farwell, Robert Fletcher and John Jones of Concord, and Thomas Bancroft of Reading, and James Cutler of Watertown, from the earliest immigrant Ancestor to the Present Generation. 125, [1] pp. Genealogies of the families of Farwell, Bancrolt, and other names enumerated on the title page, are also found here. A good example of Hill's scholarship is his treatment of a local legend from the French & Indian Wars, in which an Indian leader named Pagus was killed by a colonist named Chamberlain. An early broadside, " Expeditions of Lovewell," says Pagus and Chamberlain stopped in mid-fight to wash their flint lock muskets in a stream; and then Chamberlain having finished first, shot Pagus. Hill showed that this version of events was not only wrong, but patently ridiculous. (He felt the early settlers should have known you can't fire loose black powder in a wet pan!) Fannie Hardy Eckstorm cites his approach to the story of Pagus in a journal article. Chipping along spine of blue paper wrapper has been archivally stabalized. List of names of families included in the work written on front cover.. First Edition. Paper Wrappers. Very Good.
