	3.	DANIEL HUDSON Jr. ( DANIEL Sr.WILLLIAM) was christened on 30 Jul 1620 in

Daniel Hudson came to America about 1640 and first surfaces at Watertown,
Massachusetts.8He was named in the will of his Uncle Joseph Joslin, of Granham,
Essex, in 1642.9A mason by trade, Daniel helped to build the first school house in
Cambridge, Massachusetts  in 1647. 10 In 1665, he purchased for L40, a proprietor's
right in Lancaster, Massachusetts  situated on Gibson's Hill, from Major Simon Willard
and soon afterwards became a resident of that town. 11 In 1672 William Clemance Sr.
sold all  his real estate in Cambridge and Billerica to Daniel  Hudson of Lancaster,
Massachusetts with the provision that Hudson maintain Clemance and his wife Ann.
12Note that Clemance could well have been a close relative of Daniel Hudson's wife.(If
Daniel's wife were a daughter of Clemance she was not the daughter of Ann Clemance
who was married 3 Apr. 1659 to Clemance as second wife, as Savage (1:408) tells us,
and this leaves the possibility that the relationship was with Ann whose name is shown
to have been Taylor at the marriage). 13In 1673, Daniel Hudson "of Concord,
sometimes of Lancaster" purchased 20 acres of land in Lancaster from John Moore,
deeding this tract in the following year when "late of Lancaster but now of 
Cambridge Village," to his son Daniel "who is about to be married to Mary Maynard, of 
Sudbury, daughter of John Maynard".14 On 6 Oct. 1690, Daniel Hudson, bricklayer,
was admitted as an inhabitant of Charlestown, Massachusetts.15  By 1692 he had
moved back to Lancaster, for in that year he and his two sons were ordered to take
safety at the garrison in Lancaster in time of danger .16  On 11 Sept. 1697, Daniel and
his wife Joanna, and two of their daughters and two of their grandchildren were slain by
the Indians at Lancaster.17

His will dated 2 June 1695, probated 14 Oct. 1697 mentions wife Johannah (sole
executrix), and three sons Nathaniel, Daniel & William.18  An agreement connected
with the settlement of the estate is signed by Nathaniel Hudson for himself and for his
brother Thomas; by Samuel Waters, in right of his wife Mary; by Jacob Waters, in
right of his wife Sarah; and by James Atherton, in right of his wife Abigail.19
:
     On 18 Mar 169l/2 Daniel Hudson & his two sons were ordered to repair to the
Roper garrison  house in Lancaster in time of danger however "at present they may
continue in their own house it having a good Fort." Daniel was a brickmaker who dug
clay for his bricks beside the highway a few rods west of the bridge over Roper's Brook. 
When the Indians did attack on 11 Sept 1697, both Daniel Hudson & Ephraim Roper's
garrison houses were burned by the Indians.20

Seth Hudson was living on 7 June 1774 when he declared his signature to be authentic on a
deed regarding land he had sold to James Stratton Jr. of Athol, MA.

Records of Seth Hudson Sr. & Seth Jr. are very confusing.  Seth may have been a
soldier at Fort Massachusetts but the records might refer to his son Seth Jr. who was a
known soldier & surgeon at this Fort. Some researchers think that Seth Sr. was the
infamous counterfeiter and rogue Dr. Seth Hudson but this has yet to be proven. I
personally think that the ‘rogue” was Seth Sr’s son Seth Jr.54

Stratton Jr. of Athol for the consideration of 10 pounds, deed witnessed by Zara Hudson
and Samuel Humphrey, recorded 7 June 177460

Salem Gazette 14 Mar. 1782:  In our last we mentioned the melancholy circumstance of
a house being burnt at New-fane, in the State of Vermont, and seven persons perishing
by means of that fatal accident; we have since been made acquainted with the particulars
relating to that most unfortunate event, which cannot fail of exciting the tear of
humanity, and filling our breasts with the most poignant sorrow for the distresses of an
unhappy family, who were awakened from their slumbers, by the approach of death
arrayed in devouring flames, from whom there was no escape. The house was built with
logs; it consisted of two apartments, in one of which was a fireplace and a door, or
outlet; there was no window in the building through which an escape could be made, nor
was there another door, it was occupied by Mr Henry Sawtell, his wife, four sons and a
daughter; the eldest of his children a boy of about 14 years of age: He had but lately 
removed his family from Templeton, in this county, where he and his wife were born,
and where their aged and now unhappy parents still live.  The house was burnt on the
night of the first inst., the neighbors who lived about 80 rods off, were led to a discovery
of this sad catastrophe the next morning, by the columns of smoke which were seen to
arise from the inside of the building. Mr. Sawtell and his family all lodged in the
apartment where the fireplace was. It is supposed that as the fireplace was very near to
the door, they could not make their escape by that way without encountering with the
flames, which is supposed, had got to a considerable height before they awaked; that
they did try to make an escape is highly probable from the circumstance of the 
remains of these people being found on the spot where the other apartment of the house
stood; the bones & cc of Mr. Sawtell, and several of his children were found in the
corner of the building, and it is conjectured that he was attempting to force a pillage
through the roof, but was suffocated before he could accomplish it; the wretched relicts
of Mrs. Sawtell (who to make this seem ? more wounding to our feeling was far
advanced in pregnancy) and a young child , which it is likely (from the situation of the
bones when discovered) that she held in her arms, were found between the remains of a
hogshead of salt and a barrel of pork, where it is probable she had taken shelter. 
Another circumstance which makes it appear highly probable that they could 
not make an early escape from their horrible situation, is, that the bones of a large dog, 
belonging to Mr. Sawtell, were also found among the ruins.  The bodies of this most
unfortunate family were chiefly consumed, what remained was collected together, and
put into a coffin of middling size, but it was but about two-thirds filled.  Before
interment, the coffin with its contents were carried into the meeting-house in that town,
attended by a large number of people; and an excellent sermon, suitable to the occasion,
was preached by the Rev. Mr. Taylor, from Luke xiii, 2,4,5. One of Mr. Sawtell's
children resided with its grandparents in Templeton; by which means its life was happily
saved. It is hoped the unhappy fate of these people, will induce all persons who settle on
new land, and are obliged to build log-houses for a temporary residence, to make more
than one outlet to their buildings, which may prevent a similar calamity.

HARRINGTON, on 4 Apr 1768 in Templeton, MA.94 Henry was born on 14 Sep 1745 in
