Medford Historical Society Papers, Volume 1., Sarah Bradlee Fulton Chapter, D. A. R. (search)
who achieved American Independence. To promote, as an object of primary importance, institutions for the general diffusion of knowledge. To cherish, maintain, and extend the institutions of American freedom, to foster true patriotism and love of country, and to aid in securing for mankind all the blessings of liberty. The chapter was named in honor of Sarah Bradlee Fulton, one of the most heroic women of the Revolution, and a resident of Medford from 1772 to the time of her death in 1835. The chapter started under auspicious circumstances, and holds a warm place in the consideration of our citizens. Its relation to the Medford Historical Society is most happy, the work of the two organizations being along similar lines. Our meetings are held in the Historical Rooms. The special work of the past year has been the locating, and decorating on Memorial Day, the graves of Revolutionary soldiers. Our present membership is thirty-seven, with a waiting list of eleven.
nage continued to increase; the very sleepers used in the construction of the railway were boated, it is said, to points convenient for the workmen. The strange spectacle was thus presented, perhaps for the first time, of a corporation assisting in the preparations for its own obsequies. In 1832 the proprietors declared a dividend of $22 per share; from 1834 to 1837, inclusive, a yearly dividend of $30. The disastrous competition of the Lowell railroad was now beginning to be felt. In 1835 the Lowell goods conveyed by canal paid tonnage dues of $1,975.-51; in 1836 the income from this source had dwindled to $6,195.77. The canal dividends had been kept up to their highest mark by the sale of its townships in Maine and other real estate; but now they began to drop. The year the Lowell road went into full operation, the receipts of the canal were reduced one-third; and in 1840 when the Nashua & Lowell road went into full operation, they were reduced another third. The board of d
Sarah Bradlee Fulton. Dorchester, 1740. Medford, 1835. by Helen T. Wild, Secretary. By permission of the American Monthly, Washington, D. C. the names of the men who fought in the War of the American Revolution are carefully preserved in the archives of the State, but the women who through all those sad years endured hardship and loss, and who toiled at the spinning-wheel and in the hospitals for their country's cause, have long ago been forgotten. Only here and there a woman's name is found on the honor roll of Revolutionary days. Among the Medford women whom history has remembered, Sarah Bradlee Fulton has a prominent place. We have been proud to name our chapter for her, honoring with her all the unknown loyal women who worked and prayed in this dear old town of ours, for the cause of liberty. Mrs. Fulton was a member of the Bradlee family of Dorchester and Boston. In 1762 she married John Fulton, and ten years later they came to Medford with their little sons
ridge in the grounds of Mr. Brooks, and then, leaving the boat, made our way to the pond. Mr. Brooks was always kindly disposed, and took pleasure in allowing his friends to visit his beautiful garden and grounds. We had no steam railroad till 1835, when the Boston & Lowell Railroad was laid out. So little foresight had its projectors as to its future uses and values that it was thought desirable to avoid the towns between the termini and have no way stations. So the road, instead of its natural course through the Mystic valley, was carried at great additional expense through Winter and Walnut hills and away from the centre of the town. When the road was opened, in the spring of 1835, Mr. P. C. Brooks, desirous of giving his townsmen the novelty of riding for the first time on a railroad, arranged with the managers to have the train stop one morning at West Medford and take a party to Lowell and return. I happened to be here on a visit at the time and joined the party of about
