King Philip's war and Capt James Parker

+3 votes
I recently noted the King Philip's War category and checked Capt James Parker to see if there was mention of his part in it.  There is not.  There is lengthy discussion in "Groton during the Indian Wars" by Samuel Green of his role in the conflict (much of it in correspondence).  I am not that great a writer, and not familiar enough with the proper conventions here. Would someone like to take this on?

I added a paragraph on events on King Philip's war.  I would welcome suggestions or a complete re-write.
Well I think it is coming along nicely Jack, you have got it all in there, maybe whittle down a little of the sort of redundant paragraphs some, looks like maybe a few wrong things left from some sloppy genealogy sites could be cut out, I have another story about King Phillips War I think, let me find it
I was mistaken, it was after.  One lady who had  lost first husband and daughter and been captured before, later was again in danger when Natives attacked her town, when she and her husband could no longer hold the door shut, she ran her baking spit through the man trying to get in.  She lived to be 100
Some early Stetson Family were involved in this as well - see the Space: The Descendants of Cornet Robert Stetson - Vol 1, No 1. in the early pages.
