About Nathaniel Hodges

From "Genealogical record of the Hodges Family of New England"

Nathaniel Hodges settled in Norton between the homestead of his brother John and the location of the Norton meeting-house. His place was on the road now leading from Norton Center to the Copper Works Tillage, and was owned by Thompson Tripp in 1858. His house stood back from the road, about midway between the houses of Mr. Tripp and of Mr. L. O. Makepeace, and very near where a large house now (1894) stands about one-half mile from the First Church. The site now is owned by the heirs of Mrs. Dennis. Nathaniel was one of the original and persistent petitioners for having Taunton North Purchase (Norton) set off from Taunton as a separate church precinct. He kept, in 1712, the first public house in Norton of which there is any record. He was drawn for service in King William's War, in 1696 ; was among those ordered to Boston to strengthen Castle Island, 1697, in the same war; and was on the roster of the Taunton Military Company, May 30, 1700.
