It was one of the few trees in Somerville old enough was probably named from the great number of cedars growing in the vicinity. Years ago it was a pasture, known as the cedar pasture, and was owned and used by Thomas Rand, whose grandsons drove the cows there and gathered wild rose leaves for distilling. Old residents remember a small, round pond, with an island and solitary p large red cedar, whose trunk was more than a foot in diameter, once grew on Willow avenue not far away. From Willow avenue to Davis square was a tract known as Rand's woods. In the sixties it was a resort for enthusiasts in botany. A little further north, where the power-house now is, was another cedar pasture, owned, as wer

he lived in the upper part of the town, and posterity are still living there. He married Lydia, daughter of Ammi Cutter. The descendants of William Teele now living in this city are nineteen in number. John Stone, 1782, son of Jonathan Stone, Jr., of Medford, was of the sixth generation of the Stone family of Watertown. He married Mary, daughter of Nathaniel Tufts. Their children, who lived in Somerville and have issue here, were: Nathaniel T. Stone, who married Sarah, daughter of Thomas Rand; Hannah A., who married David A. Sanborn; and Lydia, who married Robert Vinal. Seth Stone, a brother of John, married another Mary Tufts, and although he lived elsewhere, has descendants here through his daughter Susanna, who married Benjamin Tufts. It would seem to be difficult for a person living in Somerville, and of Puritan stock, to run his or her line of ancestry back without striking a Tufts. The posterity of the progenitor now living in Somerville are twenty-four in number.
