To connect the canal with Medford River, as Mr. Hall calls it, he was the prime mover in building a Branch Canal in 1807.
This was mostly used in carrying ship timber to the various shipyards of Medford.
It left the main canal at Mystic avenue. Benjamin, Eb
's Book; A Romance of the Republic; Looking toward Sunset; and, only two years before her death, Aspirations of the World.
Her death occurred quite unexpectedly on the morning of the twentieth of October, 1880.
She had been as well as usual, and had been making plans for the winter, when suddenly she complained of a severe pain, and before help could be summoned, passed gently away, in the seventy-ninth year of her age. A few friends from Medford drove up to her funeral on the beautiful October day, and listened to the inspired words of Wendell Phillips, as he stood by his old friend, with his hand on her coffin, and told us, as only he could, of the struggles and the triumphs which had built the noble character he described.
Then, led by the whitehaired undertaker, the small procession slowly walked to the burying-ground near by, and as we stood there, in reverent silence, a magnificent rainbow spanned the eastern sky.
