In 1707, John Comce was killed, and Benjamin Mussey captived Sergeants William Cheever and Eliazar Parker served in 1722; Zechariah Hicks, clerk, and John Manning, in 1724; Sergeant Simon Holden, in 1725, and John Oldham, in 1740 Next after Colonel Goffe, William Brattle was for many years the most prominent military character. He attained the rank of Major as early as 1728, when he was only twenty-two years old; Colonel, before March, 1739; Adjutant-general in 1758; Brigadier-general, as early as 1760, and Major-general of the militia throughout the Province in 1771.

His brother Samuel, born 1741, died at the age of fifty. He, also, as we have attempted to show, rendered valuable service to his section of the town.
