Over time, memories of their family histories and ancestral homes tended to fade for New Englanders pioneering new territories to the north and west after the close of the French and Indian and Revolutionary Wars. In the author's case, his family settled the little northern border town of Berkshire, Vermont, about 1800, and all that remained of its history prior to that time was a cryptic reference to its "colonial family strains." The fact that the family in question had the common surname "Lewis," further added to the difficulty of tracing them prior to the settlement of Berk... View more info

Captain John Johnson was an "uncommon man" because he devoted his life to the benefit of the Massachusetts Bay Colony and the town of Roxbury. Johnson was about forty years old when he and his family immigrated to America aboard the Winthrop Fleet in 1630. An educated man, he supported the building of a school for the children of Roxbury, was elected as a selectman, was a constable, and was also "Surveyor-General of the Arms," which meant that he was entrusted with storing the gun powder and arms used in the defense of the colony. A staunch Puritan and family man, he eventually... View more info
