of Ephraim and Elizabeth Mallet
served faithfully in the Revolution, and we find Ephraim Mallet
, aged eighteen years, among the little garrison on Prospect Hill
Afterward he re-enlisted at Fishkill, N. Y.
, and there are various records of his service in the archives of the State House
The name of Mallet
, once so common in this locality, is now extinct, and all that remains to mark the record of their lives are a few old gravestones in the ancient cemetery at Charlestown
, and various wills and deeds in the Registry offices
of Middlesex county
Much of story and romance is hidden between the lines of these old records, and in imagination one can call up vivid pictures of life in the old colonial days while poring over these old papers.
