broken, so that the said Convars, his head lying as before expressed, we judge his death to be by the water wheel of the Come Mill.
In the case of Collins vs. Converse, it seems that Collins charged Converse with detayning a mare and her colt at the Converse farm, which belonged to Collins, and which Converse took from Collins' yard.
Josiah Converse's property was attached June 7, 1670 (the next year after his brother's death), as security for Josiah's appearance at the county court, June 24, 1670.
The witnesses for Collins were all Medford citizens—John G. Wiggin, Daniel Markham, Joseph Blanchard, and two negro servants or slaves belonging to Collins named Francis and Fortune.
Wiggin testified that he perfectly knows her to be the same mare he once bought of Mr. Collins notwithstanding shee is disguised by the clipping of her mane, eares & tayle, yet perfectly knows her to be the mare aforsaid, which himselfe first bought of Mr. Edward Collins and since sold to Daniel Markham.
