About Elizabeth Palmer (Hunt)

Info added per DARs "Lineage Book of the Charter Members" by Mary S Lockwood and published 1895.

"In the month of November, 1773, one evening about 10 o'clock, I was sitting rocking my baby in the cradle, when I heard the gate and door open. I supposed my husband was just returning from his club, and so I opened the parlor door, and there stood three stout looking Indians! I screamed, and should have fainted of very fright, had I not recognized my husbands voice, saying, don't be frightened, Betsey, it is I. We have only been making a little salt water tea. His two companions were Foster Candy and Stephen Bruce. Soon after this secretary Flucher called upon my husband and said to him, Joe, you are so obnoxious to the British government, that you had better leave town. You can take your personal property, but none of your goods. Accordingly we left town, and went to live in part of my fathers house in Watertown." --Betsey Hunt, from an oral account a few years before her death.
