    Notes:

    "He was at first a housewright, but afterwards went into business with his brother. He owned much property in Medford; and his oldest son, John, having removed to Bedford, he resided there chiefly in his old age, and was so liberal a benefactor to the church as to be mentioned with gratitude on the records. His daughters all left issue; and one of them, Susanna, left descendants, now living in Lexington, by the name of Chandler, who still preserve some relics of their ancestor. The family of Lane, when it emigrated from England, left property there, the rents of which were paid to the heirs, John Whitmore's descendants included, until within fifty years, when the heirs, being numerous, sold the estate, and divided it."

    Notes:

    "[John Lane's] daughter Mary evidently inherited the martial spirit of her ancestors. During a season of Indian alarms, before her marriage, she was in her father's house in Bedford, with one soldier on guard, and looking from a window in the roof, she saw something suspicious behind a stump. The soldier declined to fire; she took his gun, discharged it, and a dead Indian rolled into sight."
