I can attest to what is said in this video about the Pilgrims working the Indians. My eighth great-grandfather, Deacon Samuel Edson, was
“An original proprieter of Bridgewater, MA. He, with 56 share holders including Miles Standish and “Goodman Alden” bought the land Mar. 23, 1649 from Chief Massasoit the “White man’s friend to the Pilgrim fathers”.
Deacon Edson built the first grist mill in Bridgewater on this site where these mill stones testify to his courage and foresight.
A deacon in the Puritan church prominent leader in the affairs of the community until his death July 19, 1692″
This is the inscription on a commemorative plaque in War Memorial Park in West Bridgewater, Massachusetts.
