  • Notes 
    • He was a blacksmith, and one of the original petitioners for the town of Harvard in Worcester County.

      His gravestone reads:

      Here lies the Body
      of Mr John Daby
      who Departed this
      Life Jan'y 6th AD 1769
      Aged 80 years and
      11 months.

      Tis but a few whose Days amount
      To three score years and ten;
      And all beyond that short Account,
      Is Sorrow, Toil and Pain.

      Our Vitals with laborious Strife
      Bear up the crazy load.
      And drag those poor Remains of Life,
      Along the tiresome Road.
