Soldier and Indian=scout at Radley, Mass. His wife and children were captured and taken to Canada; one daughter was named "Canada." A descendant of this same daughter founded Smith College at Northampton, Mass. Benjamin was slain by the Indians during a fight with the French and Indians, at Deerfield, Mass.

NOTE:  This is believed to be correct; but further confirmation of the authenticity of this relationship to Thomas (1) may possibly be desirable.
