Weld, Marah (b. BEF 2 AUG 1646, d. 1688)
Note: According to John Eliot, the minister of the Roxbury church and known to history as the Apostle to the Indians because he translated the Bible into their language, "the cause of the bitter name marah is that the father, Joseph Weld, is now in great affliction by a sore on his tongue." He died shortly afterwards, apparently a victim of cancer.

Roper, Ephraim (b. 23 DEC 1644, d. 11 SEP 1697)
Note: Ephraim Roper moved to Lancaster, Massachusetts, as a young man. In early 1676 the town was attacked by the Indian leader known as King Philip and perhaps as many as 1500 warriors. Forty-two or more settlers, including Ephraim, his wife and infant daughter sought refuge in the partially fortified house of the Reverend Rowlandson. The house was attacked shortly after dawn and as Mrs. Rowlandson wrote in her "Removes," 'quickly it was the dolefullest day that ever mine eyes saw." Of all the people in the Rowlandson house, only Ephraim Roper managed to escape while the rest were killed or captured. His wife and daughter perished and the town was burned.

Roper joined the command of Captain Turner sent to attack King Philip and they did so at the falls of the Connecticut River on May 18 1676, killing many in what a contemporary called "a great and noble slaughter." But Philip counterattacked as Turner and his men retired and Turner was killed. The falls near where he was found are named for him.

Ephraim Roper lived in Cambridge for some time after the massacre but returned to Lancaster early in 1684.

Twenty-one years later the Indians, this time stirred up by the French, attacked the rebuilt town once more and this time twenty-one were killed, among them Ephraim, his second wife, and one of their daughters. Their son Ephraim was captured and lived with the Indians for two years.

----------, Hannah (b. , d. 11 SEP 1697)
Note: Hannah, although not present in Lancaster when the massacre took place, suffered from it in a curious way. On Aug 7 1676 three Indian women and three children were murdered near Huckleberry Hill outside of Lancaster in an act of cold-blooded revenge for the massacre. Four soldiers confessed to the crime or to having been present. The two perpetrators, Daniel Goble and his brother Stephen, Hannah's husband, were hanged on Sep 26 1676 as was an Indian named One-eyed John, who had played a major part in the massacre. The other two soldiers, who had merely been present, had their sentences commuted.

Dolbeare, Edmund (b. BEF 26 JUN 1644, d. BEF 24 JUL 1711)
Note: Edmund Dolbeare was a pewterer and taught this trade to his two elder children. Ashburton, in Devonshire, was a center of the English pewter industry, located close to the Cornish tin mines. No known pewter of Edmund Dolbeare survives, and his pewterer's mark is unknown.

We know Edmund Dolbeare emigrated to Boston by 1671 as he gave a deposition in a court case on Sep 16 of that year. His wife and two children either came with him at that time or followed later. The family lived in Boston except, apparently, for the years 1684-1691, when his first five children by his second wife are recorded as being born in Salem.

Huntington, Simon (b. 6 FEB 1659, d. 2 NOV 1736)
Note: Simon Huntington was Deacon of the church for many years as his father had been before him. At one time or another he held most of the important town offices.

His house served as the magazine for the town's weapons and in 1720 it contained a half barrel of gun powder, 31 pounds of bullets, and 400 flints.

One can only wonder what Mrs. Huntington's opinion of half a barrel of powder--quite enough to blow the house to matchsticks--must have been.
