  8. John Brewer, the immigrant ancestor, was born in England about 1620. He settled in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he was a proprietor as early as 1644-45. Very little is known about him. He married Ann __. He removed to Sudbury, Massachusetts, about 1646. His first two children were born in Cambridge, the other three in Sudbury. There was another John Brewer among the early settlers at Ipswich, Massachusetts. Thomas Brewer, very likely his brother, was also a pioneer at Ipswich. The only other early settler in Massachusetts was Daniel Brewer, of Roxbury, who may have been related to John Brewer, of this pedigree. Children of John and Ann Brewer: 1. 'John born October 10, 1642, mentioned below'. 2. Hannah, born January 18, 1645, married, at Sudbury, February 25, 1664, Daniel Goble. 3. Mary, born September 23, 1648. 4. William, born October 6, 1653. 5. Sarah, born March 27, 1658.

----------------------------------------------- Hannah (Brewer) GOBLE remarried on Nov 20, 1677 to Ephraim ROPER (son of John J. ROPER and Alice __) and they had 5 children. Hannah, Ephraim and a daughter, Priscilla ROPER were all killed by Indians on Sep 11, 1697 in a massacre at Lancaster, MA. Sources: (1) Charles Henry Pope, Pioneers of Massachusetts, (Gen. Publishing Co., 1981), page 67. (2) Dorothy Hand Dymond, Genealogy of the Hand Family and Related Families, (Gateway Press, Inc. Baltimore, MD 1982). (3) New England Historical and Genealogical Register, 1854. Early Records of Boston, page 345 says 18 (11) 1644 which translates to 18 Jan 1645.

Out of the 4 children born to Daniel GOBLE and Hannah BREWER, only one has known descendants. Daniel (also known as David) GOBLE, born May 21, 1669 as you have stated. He married Sarah HOUGHTON Jun 23, 1689 in Lancaster, MA. She was the daughter of John HOUGHTON III and Beatrix Joselyn/WALKER according to LDS files. Daniel/David GOBLE and Sarah HOUGHTON had 8 children. Sarah died Feb 1715/16 in Morristown, NJ after which Daniel/David married Abigail __. Sources: (1) Dorothy Hand Dymond - Genealogy of the Hand Family and Related Families, 1982 - pg. 170. (2) Compiled from the Original Applications, Sons & Daughters of the Pilgrims, (Published by the Society 1929), says Oct 17, 1740.

----------------------------------------- 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. He was married to Hannah ---------- on Nov 20 1677 in Concord, Massachusetts.

917. Hannah ---------- (117) died on Sep 11 1697 in Lancaster, Massachusetts. 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.
