Under the name of John Fezington (Fessenden) he says: In his family is Reuben Luxford, alias Olbon, who, together with his sister Elizabeth, were baptized in this church, being the children of our Sister Olbon (lately Cole), now deceased. The original record was thus written; but subsequently the words—Luxford alias—were erased. 2. Reuben, s. of James (1), resumed the name Luxford, and m.

It would seem that his appearance was very dignified, and somewhat more haughty than would be tolerated in these days, since it has been discovered that all men are born free and equal. In the Library of the Mass. Hist. Society is preserved a letter from Nathaniel Cotton, a member of the Senior Class in College, to his father, Rev.
