ship-yard), was made by Charlestown, 1641, to their land north of Medford. The road is now called Cross and Fulton Streets. To have free access to the river, the great highway, they opened private roads for the use of owners of lands, and what were called range-ways for the free use of the public. Many of these are found in Charlestown. One of these was Cross Street; the next, west of it, was at the Ford, and the Governor Lane was a part of it; the next was by the easterly side of Mr. T. Magoun's house; the next was east of Mr. Turell's house, the lane is yet open; the next was at the Rock Hill, and the old Woburn road was part of it; the next was above the Lowell Railroad Depot, in High Street, and connected with Grove Street, formerly called the road round the woods. These roads to the river, in Medford, were opened soon after the main thoroughfare. The first public road laid out in Medford was Main Street, leading from the Ford to Boston; the second was Salem Street, leadi

He baptized 853 persons; married 359 couples; admitted to the church 304 communicants; and officiated at 990 funerals.

This great ship-builder was born in Pembroke, Mass., June 17, 1775, the aid, he made the model of the first vessel he ever built, the brig Mt. Aetna. Mr. Magoun was not a man to remain content with a subordinate position in his trade, andat time until 1836, and during that period built 84 vessels.

r. John Brooks. Ensign Stephen Hall was the eldest son of Stephen Hall, Tertius. He was born Jan. 3, 1745, and died at Revere in 1817. His granddaughter said of him: I remember my grandfather well; he lived and died at my father's, and I never can forget his life and counsel; he was very exemplary in his daily life, and dearly did I love him; he was a large man of very dignified appearance. Thomas Bradshaw, private, was the proprietor of the Fountain House. His daughter married Thatcher Magoun, Sr. There were nine Tuftses in the company, all kinsmen. Seven of them were voters in 1776-7. James Tufts, Jr., was a potter in later years. The land on which his shop stood, between the river and Tufts place, is owned by his grandsons to-day. Daniel Tufts lived opposite the Powder House, on land set off to Charlestown in 1811. One hundred twenty-three years ago to-night a feeling of excitement and suspense pervaded the town.

street was laid out in the year 1746, in order to make a convenient way to the tide mill. The most easterly of the ways leading from the River road to the river is now known as Foster court, and the landing-place was called Labor in vain Landing, it being opposite Labor in vain Point. There is some reason to believe that it was also called Hall's Landing. The next westerly landing was situated near the foot of Park street, and the way thereto was through land afterwards used by Mr. Thatcher Magoun as a shipyard. The third and last landing-place east of the bridge was situated at the foot of Cross street and was called No Man's Friend, and also Wade's Landing. Charlestown laid out a way from this landing to its woodlots, on the northerly line of Mr. Cradock's farm, the southerly end of this way being at or near the present location of Cross street. It has been said that Charlestown laid out both Cross and Fulton streets, but, as will be hereinafter shown, the way laid out b

his own home, he was contented to remain the prop of his father's old age, and the bond between the two was unusually close. Benjamin, Jr., died in 1807, and his son Dudley crept into his father's place in the grandfather's heart. With the building of the bridges, and the continuation of Middlesex canal to Boston, the trade of Medford declined. Lightering, which for a century had been carried on with profit, was at an end. As the old business died, a new interest—ship-building Thatcher Magoun laid the first keel in Medford in 1802.—sprang into being, and a new era began. Benjamin Hall was a stanch Federalist. In fact, the whole town was unanimous in the support of that party. In the campaigns between Jefferson and Adams, Medford went solidly for the Massachusetts man. Mr. Hall was a delegate to the electoral college which made John Adams president. The personal popularity of Governor Brooks caused the town to follow his leadership in politics as long as he lived, b
