(1) History of Medfield by Tilden, William Smith 1830-1913 (Boston 1887): "When the Indians made their attack upon the town, Elizabeth took her youngest child, then a year and a half, in her arms, and ran toward the fort. When a little way from the house, the savages overtook her and killed her by a blow on the head. The child, Samuel Jr., was thrown on the ground, stunned, and left for dead bu recovered consciousness, and when found had crept to the dead body of his mother. One year from that day Samuel Smith Sr. married Sarah, widow of john Bowers who had also been killed by the Indians." URL: [www.archives.org]
