On 15 March 15 1697, Hannah witnessed the brutal killing of her baby and several of her neighbors. Later in her captivity, while detained on an island in the Merrimack River in present-day Boscawen, New Hampshire, she acquired the assistance of two other English captives, her daughter's nurse Mary (Corliss) Neff and 14-year-old Samuel Leonard. Together, they scalped ten of the Indian family members holding them hostage. Duston's captivity narrative became famous more than a hundred years after she died. She was the first woman honored in the United States with a statue.2

John Endicott1

b. 1588, d. 15 March 1655
Birth*1588John Endicott was born in 1588 in Dorchester, Dorset County, England.1
Biographical Info*John Endicott, whose name was also spelled Endecott or Endicot, was a colonial magistrate, soldier, and governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony. He had arrived in New England in 1628 and resided for many years in Salem, Massachusetts before his relocation to Boston where he lived for only a few years near the end of his life. He was one of the original patentees of the Massachusetts grant and acted as Governor until John Winthrop and his large group arrived. Endicott was once chosen Governor while Winthrop lived, and after Winthrop's death was elected chief magistrate for fourteen out of fifteen years. In his religious views, he was bigoted, but no doubt conscientious and sincere. He despised the Quakers and perceived them as a threat to the state religion (Puritanism) and to the community. Several Quakers were hanged while he was Governor, with other penalties pronounced including ears or tongues cut off, public lashings, and bread and water diet jail sentences. He was very popular among his constituents and a zealous defender of civil rights in the Colony.2
(Magistrate) Marriage1660Governor John Endicott performed the marriage ceremony of John Hayden and Hannah Ames in 1660.3
Death*15 March 1655He died on 15 March 1655 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England).1
Burial*He was buried in Granary Burying Ground, Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England).2
