  • Notes 

    • "The Marked Man" had been captured and tattooed by Indians, 2/22/1697-8. After his father was killed in his presence, he was taken prisoner, along with a young friend. Warren Ladd describes it: "They then started for Penacock, where the arrived with the two boys. Young Ladd soon grew weary of his situation and one night after his Indian master and family had fallen asleep, he attempted to escape. He had proceeded but a short distance, when he thought that he should want a hatchet to fell trees and assist him in crossing streams. He then returned, entered a wigwam near his master's, where an old squaw lay sick, and took a hatchet. The squaw watched his movements and thinking that he was going to kill her she screamed loudly. This wakened the Indians in the wigwam, who instantly arose, re-captured him and delivered him again to his master, who bound his hands, laid him upon his back, fasted one of his feet to a tree, and in that manner kept him fourteen nights. They then gashed his face with their knives, filled the wounds with powder and kept him on his back until it was so indented in the flesh that it was impossible to extract it. He carried the scars to his grave, and is now frequently spoken of by his descendents as the "marked man." Some years after he found means to return and his scarred and powdered countenance produced many witticisms at his expense. He was one day walking the streets of Boston, and a parrot observing his marked features screamed 'a rogue, a rogue'. Young Haynes remained a prisoner with the Indians some years and was at least redeemed by his relatives. The next month Andover was again attacked killing five more. This proved to be the last attack in the vicinity during this war. Peace being declared between France and England, the governor of Canada informed the Indians that he could no longer support them in their war against the English. "
