    From the Find a Grave page for Pvt John Damon:

    John was a minor when his father died (about age 15) and as such his father's will puts him under the guardianship of Thomas Poole (1673-1732) for male guidance. Poole was indirectly related to the Damons since his sister Rebecca had married Peter Emerson. Poole was also trusted by the community since in 1721 the Reading community vote him to a committee of three that would oversee a loan fund from money provided to various towns by the Massachusetts General Court to stimulate growth. Individuals could borrow from 5 to 20 pounds. His brother-in-law Peter Emerson was also on this committee. John's 12 year old sister Abigail was placed under the guardianship of her mother Lucy Ann. [...]

    He enlisted (or perhaps had already trained) as a private in the Captain Josiah Putnam's company in Col. Jedediah Foster's regiment which marched to Roxbury at Boston when the first alarm was raised. His son Peter was a corporal in this same company, which was led by his father-in-law (Peter had married Lydia Putnam, and his brother Jude married Ruth Putnam, both the nieces of General Israel Putnam).

    A John Damon is named in the the fourth school district for Western in 1779 when it was divided into six districts. There are 14 other families in this district including Peter Demon (Damon) who is John's son and Isaac Gleason who must be a relative of John's wife Hannah Gleason. In district 4 there are also five Bliss families (Aaron, Edward, Isaac, Moses, and Solomon) and others as well( Reuben in #2, and Samuel in #3) who are likely relatives of John's daughter-in-law Esther Hubbard whose mother was Hannah Bliss. Other Gleasons in the town include John (district 1) and Joseph (district 5). So it would appear that these families stayed close to each other as a social network for mutual support.

    John married Hannah. Hannah died in 1758. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
