About Joanna Hudson

On September 11, 1697 a party of about 40 Indians surprised and killed 26 persons of Lancaster. They burned two garrison houses and two barns. Among those killed, besides Daniel and Joanna, were two of their daughters, Joanna,37 and Elizabeth,40; also 2 children of their son, Nathaniel ,and Nathaniel's mother-in-law, Hanna Pescott Rugg.

Joanna Hudson was slain, along with her husband Daniel Hudson (b. 1625) , along with two daughters and two grandchildren in the Lancaster, MA Raid of 1697. One-third of the Town of Lancaster was wiped out in that raid and many people taken captive, including Daniel's two daughters, Joanna and Elizbeth, ages 37 and 40. They were never heard from again. The townspeople made a valiant effort to defend their homes during the raid, but many of them were killed, including the above Hudson family. For more information about this raid by the Indians and several other raids in Lancaster, please see Early Records of Lancaster, MA. Family links:
