Medford Historical Society Papers, Volume 15., Marshall Symmes of Upper Medford. (search)
Marshall Symmes of Upper Medford. Since the preceding article on the 18-18 Boys was prepared, Marshall Symmes, the last of the company, has passed away. His death occurred on July 19, 1911, at his home in Winchester, of which town he was the oldest resident. He always lived near his birthplace, which was, in 1818 and till 1850, in that part of Upper Medford known as Symmes' Corner. He was seventh in descent from Rev. Zachariah Symmes, the first minister of the Charlestown church. The ancestral home was upon the minister's farm, granted to him in those early colonial days. Some portions have never passed from, but are still in the family name.

Curtis, December 18, 1911, on Scenes Along the Mystic in the Early Fifties.] IN 1850 the population of Medford exceeded that of Maiden. Maiden then included both Melrose and Everett, known as North and South Maiden, respectively. Medford's population was then also larger than Somerville's, which now outnumbers us three or four to one. At that time Medford was in her palmiest days, having a great prestige through her ship-building industry following the discovery of gold, in 1849, on the Pacific coast. A few years later, however, it became evident that wooden vessels were passing, and this fact, together with other circumstances (such as the withholding of lands from the market, and our location on a spur track instead of a main line) will account for being outstripped in growth by these neighboring communities. There were three ship-yards on the south side of the ri
