  • 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." ["The Whitmores of Medford and Some of Their Descendants", Medford Historical Society Papers, Volume 8, at http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/text?doc=Perseus%3Atext%3A2005.05.0008%3Achapter%3D16.]
