Neighborhood Sketch no. 7. Winter Hill By Harriet A. Adams. commencing with Joseph Adams, farmer, on the righthand side, facing down at the top of Winter Hill, was the old Adams house, sometimes called the Magoun house. In 1840, and for many years afterwards, the nearest house was that of Abby and Edmund Tufts, on the lower corner of Broadway and Central street. Mr. Tufts was a printer, and got out the first directory of Somerville. The next house, that of Chester Adams, was afterware families of Luther and Nathaniel Mitchell, brickmakers.

Two sons of Joseph Adams, through their children, figure in this history,—Thomas4 Adams being the father of Hannah, the wife of Walter Russell, to whom reference will be made in our next paper; and Joseph4 Adams (styled deacon), whose children contrive to confuse us still further with their mar, and Hannah married Peter Tufts, the third; Nathan5 Adams took to wife Rebecca, the daughter of Peter, Jr., and Joseph5 Adams (styled major) married, for his first wife, Lucy, the daughter of our Samuel Kent. Samuel and Rebecca (Adams) Kent had seven children, some of whom died in infancy. Besides the above-mentioned Lucy, thereams, his wife, was not, I believe, a daughter of Joseph Adams.
