About Daniel Corliss Ladd

On February 22, 1698, Samuel Ladd and Jonathon Haynes, with their eldest sons, Daniel and Joseph, left to bring in hay from a meadow about 3 miles west of town. Both Daniel and Joseph were 20 years old. When returning they were surrounded by indians and taken prisoner with no chance to defend themselves. Samuel and Jonathon were killed and the two boys taken to an indian village at Pencock and held captive. Soon after arrival, Daniel was able to escape but was recaptured before he could reach safety. He was bound hand and foot and laid on his back with one foot tied to a tree and kept that way for 14 days. His face was gashed with a knife and black powder place in the wounds until his face was tattooed black. Those marks never left and was referred to as the "Marked Man". After several years, he did escape and returned to Haverhill where he lived until his death in 1751.

On Daniels return to his home he became heir to his father's estate and head of the family. He married and fathered many children.

-- from John Ladd

At the time his father was killed by the Indians, he was captured by them. Chase, in his History of Haverhill, gives an account of his capture, from which we make the following synopsis: "Samuel Ladd was killed by the Indians at Haverhill, Feb 22, 1698, and his son Daniel taken prisoner and carried to Penacook, NH. Soon after reaching Penacook young Ladd made an attempt to escape. He left the wigwam when all were asleep, and had gone but a short distance when it occurred to him that a hatchet might be needed. He returned, and entered the wigwam where a squaw was sick. He noticed him, gave warning, awakened the other Indians, and he was recaptured where his hands were bound and he was laid upon his back, with one foot fastened to a tree. In this condition he was kept fourteen days. As soon as he was bound his face was gashed, powder was inserted into the wounds, and remained there until it became indented in his flesh that it was impossible to remove it. The dark spots never left his face, and he was often referred to by his descendants as the 'marked man'. Some years after his capture he escaped and returned to Haverhill."
