In their records the engine is sometimes called the Western Engine Company. They held their meetings the first Monday in every month at the houses of the members or at the hotels in the town. In January, 1820, the Selectmen appointed the following persons as members of the company, viz.: William Butters, Ebenezer Putnam, Cornelius Bigelow, Abial Butters, Henry Woodwarth, James T. Floyd Jr., Benjamin Floyd 2d, John M. Kuhn, Oliver Wyman, William E. Otis, Marshal Symmes, Sewall Pierce, Thomas Calf, Edward Hudley. Thus it seems that the Selectmen, with the approval of the engineers, appointed new men every year or two which was in accordance with the act of the General Court. This company voted to disband on the twenty-second day of December, 1859, and so notified the Board of Engineers. Engine N

He died in the year 1753, and his widow, Mercy Bradshaw, was licensed for the remainder of the year, and the record reads that she occupied the house formerly of Mr. William Willis. Mr. Reaves sold in the year 1784 to Mr. Abijah Usher of Roxbury. In 1792 Mr. Robert Usher was licensed as an innholder and kept this tavern. He was succeeded by Messrs. Abijah Usher, Eleazer Usher, Wyman Weston, Ebenezer Putnam and others. The estate passed from the ownership of Mr. Usher, and through many different persons down to the present day; it is now in the possession of Mr. F. E. Chandler. This estate has been aptly described as a well chosen location for a place of entertainment for tired horses and thirsty men, at the foot of that sharp rise in the road known as Marm Simonds' Hill. A contemporary further described this house as a groggy old hole. The Fountain Tavern. Under the date of

ast drop of their blood From his home to the south came the impetuous Israel Putnam. Hearing the news the next morning, as in leather frock and apron he was at work in his field, he stopped only to arouse the militia, and mounting his horse in hot haste he travelled one hundred miles in eighteen hours without changing his horse, and reached Cambridge the next morning before sunrise. From his home to the north came John Stark in the same heroic, picturesque way, leaving his sawmill as Putnam had left the building of a stone wall. As he hurried along he told his followers to meet him in Medford on the banks of the Mystic. Soon after these men came thronging in, until nearly two thousand had gathered here. Some returned home, others came back after arranging their affairs, and some of these joined Massachusetts regiments, while men of this province joined regiments of the New Hampshire line, among the latter being a few from this town. By three ways these men may have entere

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 o
