Soldiers of the King Philip's War
                       From "Soldiers of the King Philips War" by George M. Bodge, Boston,
                       1906.  Transcribed by Cynthia and used here with her permission.

                       Will start out with the roster of officers and gradually as time allows,
                       send out the different  companies in the Massachusetts Bay area which today
                       include Mass.,Conn.,Maine, and  NH.

                       I realize this is very early for many of you but these folks were our
                       early ancestors of descendants who later settled in the Conn River Valley area of
                       Mass,Conn,Vt,and NH. [some later Mass>NH>Maine]
                       I did not change any spelling , if you see [___]after a name, it's my
                       suggestion only.
