he Neck. Sons Bernard and Asa married and left town. Abigail, the eldest daughter, and Edmund, the youngest son, lived in the old homestead. Edmund was intimately connected with the early history of this town, and his sign on the old house, Edmund Tufts, Printer, is still remembered. For some years he did the printing for the new town of Somerville and its inhabitants, and we find his name on most of the early town reports. He issued a Somerville Directory in 1851, a pamphlet of thirty-two pages. Edmund was a cultivated, genial man of somewhat portly figure, and in the words of his sister was a very pleasant brother. All the children loved him and well up the hill near the tower in Mt. Auburn cemetery a stone was erected to Uncle Edmund Tufts. The two younger sons of Peter were Asa and Thomas. The former is the ancestor of the highly respected family of Dover, N. H.; the latter settled in Lexington, but grandchildren in the persons of Mrs. S. Z. Bowman and the late Albert N.
lity, and not a pretense or a cover. He lived in Charlestown before he came to Somerville. It was related of him at the time by a Charlestown baker that his bill against Mr. Forster in one year for bread was over four hundred dollars, not one loaf of which went to his own house. Of late years his house has been owned and occupied by Mrs. E. R. Sawyer, but has now been removed to the rear. One rangeway more, now Central street. On the first corner stood a house owned and occupied by Edmund Tufts,—the first treasurer of Somerville,—and his sister, Abby Tufts. The house is now a thing of the past. The next house was owned and occupied by John C. Magoun, for many years an assessor of the town and city of Somerville. The house is still standing, and is occupied by one of his daughters. Next came the unfinished brick house of Samuel Welch, about which so many romantic stories have been told. The next was the Powder House, with perhaps a house in front of it. I am not sure. Beyo
