I moved for separate trials and got t and they all went home that evening, and so did the rest of the inhabitants of Malden. But that night they hanged the poor lawyer in effigy.

Medford men were with Washington at Monmouth, at Brandywine, at the crossing of the Delaware, and in other places, and fought bravely for the liberties and independence of their country. Mr. Nowell, in his diary, kept at Boston, has the following:-- Aug. 6, 1775: Skirmishing Mistick River. Several soldiers brought over here wounded. The house at Penny Ferry, Malden side, burnt. Aug. 13.--Several gondaloes sailed up Mistick River, upon which the Provincials and they had a skirmish many shots exchanged, but nothing decisive. It appears from these records that the enemy attempted incursions here, but were promptly met and repulsed by our fathers. This event put the inhabitants of Medford in a state of watchfulness and defence at the very earliest period of the Revolution. A detachment of troops from the army at Cambridge were ordered east; and
of taking command of another company; and Lieutenant Caleb Brooks was chosen captain in his stead, and, as such, made a report, January 3, 1776. The corps which Captain Isaac Hall commanded was made up of men from Medford, Charlestown, Woburn, Malden, Cambridge, and Stoneham, and were called the eight months men. They enlisted for that time; and, in addition to their pay, each one was to have a coat at the expiration of his enlistment. Eight of this company belonged to Medford; and they werhan AdamsApril 26, 1802. Samuel ThompsonApril 3, 1804. Until this time, this company had belonged to the first regiment of the first brigade of the third division; but now a new regiment, the fifth, was formed, and Medford, Charlestown, and Malden composed it. The next captain of the Medford company was Rufus Frost, chosen May 12, 1806. He resigned, and was discharged March 10, 1810. He was re-elected April 3, 1810, but he refused to qualify. The next captains were:-- Henry Reedchose

Chapter 9: public buildings. First meeting-house. First meeting-house, 1696. during the first years of their residence in Medford, our pious ancestors were not sufficiently numerous and rich to support a minister of the gospel; hence they joined the churches of Cambridge, Charlestown, Watertown, Woburn, and Malden. That they had preaching in the town at funerals and baptisms, is most probable; but the loss of our earliest records prevents our stating any specific action on the subject till about 1690, when the desire to build a meeting-house became strong and effectual. They worshipped in private rooms; and we find a vote of the town to pay Thomas Willis thirty shillings for the use of his rooms for one year. January 17, 1693, we find the following record:-- At a general town-meeting of the inhabitants of Medford, being fifteen days warned, voted that there shall be a meeting-house erected, to be finished the first of October following, on the land of Mr. Thomas
