    Notes 
    • "About 1720, the Indians at the East again began to manifest open hostilities to the whites, which soon assumed the proportions of war. There had been occasional fights previous to 1722, instigated by the French Jesuits, and in August 1723 the General Court met and approved of the proclamation of war which had been issued by Gov. Samuel Shute . . . . By the death of Gov. Shute the conduct of the war fell to the lot of Lieut-Gov William Dummer, acting governor of the colony; hence it is sometimes known as Dummer's War. Expeditions were sent in successive years, with great loss of men and money,until the natives were subdued.

      " 'First in the order of tie of our military heroes, in these days of trial,' says Marvin, 'was Lieut. afterwards Capt. Jabez Fairbank. He was a famous scouting officer, and traversed large sections of the country to the north, east and west, in search of prowling Indians." [1]
