About Martha Pattishall

{Source: Thanks to Judy Wester's Postings on - Site - "Dale/Judy Wester Family" - updated 09 Jun 2003 - emial -}:

"The following is from "Paul Revere & the World He Lived In" by Esther Forbes: "Richard Pattishall married Captain Woody's Daughter, Martha. With his fine clother and bold adventures he was typical of Boston Puritans of his day. It is true he prayed loud and long, but 'irreverently enough.' He was not the man to stay quietly in one village, cultivating his soul, but ranged up and down the coast from New York to Maine.' In Maine he owned thousands upon thousands of wild acres stretching from Salmon Falls to beyond Pemaquid. When drums were beat calling volunteers to chase the pirates, Veal and Graham, it was he who took charge. When he died, it was on his own ship. The Indians boarded it at night as it lay off Permaquid and butchered him as he slep. It was in these Maine waters Paul Revere was to suffer the greatest humiliation of his life."
