we quote from another page of Mr. Swan:—
The visit of General Washington to Colonel Brooks in 1789 was in the forenoon.
He came on horseback, escorted by several gentlemen from Boston.
They came through Cambridge to old Menotomy across Wear bridge, through High Street to Col. Brooks' residence in the easterly end of the old Watson house [demolished in 1916] next the meetinghouse.
Their horses were taken to the barn of Mr. Isaac Greenleaf (nearly opposite Dr. Osgood's) [present Unitarian parsonage], where Capt. Ward from Salem afterward built his house and died, and now owned and occupied by Thatcher Magoun.
Mr. Swan also noted, that Thatcher Magoun, Sr., came to Medford about 1803, married Miss Mary Bradshaw of Medford, died April 16, 1856, aged 80, and that she died April 23, 1862, aged 78.
They had daughters, Susan, Mary and Martha, and son Thatcher, who married his cousin, Martha Tufts of Charlestown.
Susan married Rev. Dr. Wm. Adams of New York, died—— and Marth<
