the will of Isaac Royall, senior, which has given rise to ingenious surmising as to the identity of his wife. He leaves certain property to my daughter-in-law, Ann Oliver, the wife of Robert Oliver of Dorchester. Brooks (History of Medford) and Harris (New England Royalls) state that Isaac Royal married Elizabeth, daughter of Asaph Elliot of Boston, which is undoubtedly correct. Harris further states that this Elizabeth had been previously married to one Oliver by whom she had a male child (pHarris further states that this Elizabeth had been previously married to one Oliver by whom she had a male child (presumably Robert Oliver). But the Elizabeth Royall who came to Charlestown with her husband was the widow of James Brown of Antigua, and was married to Isaac Royall in Antigua, June 3, 1707. Her daughter by her former husband, Ann Brown, married (also in Antigua), February 3, 1721, Robert Oliver. This seems more reasonable than to suppose that a widow Oliver should have been married a second time under her maiden name of Elliot, for so the record stands. Brooks speaks of the suspicion that n
last of the troops had embarked. The Medford company was in the 37th Mass. Regiment, commanded by Col. Thos. Gardner. In the account of the Battle of Bunker Hill in his Siege of Boston, Frothingham says, After the British landed, this regiment (Gardner's) was stationed in the road leading to Lechmere's Point, and late in the day was ordered to Charlestown. On arriving at Bunker Hill, General Putnam ordered part of it to assist in throwing up defences commenced at this place. One company (Harris') went to the rail fence. The greater part under the lead of their colonel on the third attack advanced towards the redoubt. On the way, Colonel Gardner was struck by a ball, which inflicted a mortal wound. The loss of the regiment in this battle was six killed, seven wounded. September 1, 1775, Isaac Hall was discharged to organize another company of men from Medford, Stoneham and other adjoining towns. With this company he marched to Dorchester Heights in March, 1776. During 1775
Police arrests. --The Mayor's police arrested yesterday afternoon three men, named Timothy Barrett, Patrick Madden and Hugh McGurdy, on the charge of stealing a mule, valued at one thousand dollars, the property of the Confederate States. When arrested, they protested their innocence; but the complaint against them was direct, and the officers had no other recourse than to lock them up till this morning, when the Mayor will investigate the matter. Davy Robinson was arrested and locked up in the lower station-house by officer Bibb on the charge of committing an assault upon Elizabeth Harris and striking her with a rock.
l of by the traitors and their dupes who lately assembled at Chicago, has lost the confidence of the loyal people of the land; and the open prayers in his behalf, on the part of the rebels at Richmond, should be a warning to every patriot. Resolved, That the course of George H. Pendleton, in persistently voting in Congress with the enemies of our country, against furnishing supplies to our army and navy, has placed him in the same category with Ben and Fernando Wood, Vallandigham, Long, Harris and Voorhees, and, as such, he deserves the contempt of the community. Resolved, That our thanks are due, and are hereby tendered, to Grant, Sherman, Meade, Thomas, Sheridan, Farragut, Porter, and all the other gallant officers, soldiers and sailors of our army and navy, for their patriotic efforts and gallant deeds in our behalf. General E. C. Carrington, District Attorney, was then introduced, and proceeded to portray the "Democratic wigwam"--reviewing the political character of
lizabeth, slave of John a farmer near Chaffin's Bluff, who was arrested by watchman E. H. Hicks on Tuesday night as a runaway, was committed till such time as her owner can be heard from. She informed the Mayor yesterday that when the Yankees commenced their fighting at Chaffin's, a few days since, the shells came so near where she was living that she became alarmed and ran off on account of it. The charge preferred against a free negro, named Davy Robinson, of throwing a rock at Elizabeth Harris, and being without a register, was continued till Friday. Becoming very much annoyed by the constant application of persons for the release of their servants who had been arrested on the streets during the morning by order of the Governor, the Mayor took occasion, before leaving his seat, to notify all such that he had no authority whatever to interfere in the matter, nor had he the inclination to do so, even supposing it was in his power. He said it was a duty we owed to the caus
