Marriages, Deaths and Births
Harvard - 1732 - 1800.
 
p.497
 
In the year 1890, Harvard appropriated fifty dollars to pay for copying the records of Births,
Deaths and Marriages to the year 1840. The work has been completed but the following lists
have been made without reference to this transcript.  Those of Marriages and Deaths copy the
order of entry and the spelling of names in the original registry.  The

various scribes are here made uniform.  The words "of Harvard" have been omitted, it being
understood that all are of this town unless otherwise noted.  Words in brackets give infor-
mation derived from other sources than the clerks' entries, or point to discrepancies between
church and town registers.
 
The clergyman's record of marriages usually has appended to each entry the fee received.
These are not here printed.
 
John Seccomb, during the early years of his ministry, generally had five shillings for each
couple joined by him, though some generous grooms gave him double that sum.
 
About 1750 the marriage fee became "one pound old tenor."  Towards the close of his pastorate
the entries were mostly "a dollar" or "half a dollar."  One one occasion he sets down in his
very plainest chirography a "pistareen."  Reverend Joseph Wheeler, from 1760, commonly records
"2.5s"  as the fee received. This was, of course, in depreciated currency. During the
Revolution, the usual fee was six shilings legal money.
 
Mr. Seccomb's record of deaths is probably the more complete, because at the time of his
coming to the pastoral duties, the custom had grown somewhat general in the country of in-
viting the minister to offer a prayer at the dwelling before the body was borne to the grave.
To the earlier New England, such ceremony would have seemed to favor Episcopalianism. The
classic but much abused custom of offering refreshments to the watchers over the corpse, and
to the visitors on the day of the funeral, was deemed obligatory even by the poorest family.
 
The death rate of 1778 surpassed that of every other year, the register noting forty-eight
funerals. Three fourths of the deaths were of young children, and nearly half of them were in
the month of September.
 
The list of births here given is a labored complilation from various records found scattered
through the early town books and elsewhere. For convenience of reference and to economize
space, the disorderly entries of the clerks have been arranged by families and alphabetically.

"This is to certify whom it may concern that the bearer
Lieutenant James Johnson, inhabitant in the town of
Charlestown in the Province of New-Hampshire in New Eng-
land, who, together with his family, was taken by the
Indians on the 30th of August, 1754, has ever since
continued a steady and faithful subject to his Majesty
King George, and has used his utmost endeavors to re-
deem his family and all others belonging to the Province
aforesaid that were in the hands of the French and Ind-
ians which he cannot yet accomplish, and that both him-
self and family have undergone innumerable hardships and
afflictions since they have been prisoners in Canada.
 
In testimony of which, we, the subscribers, officers
in his Britannic Majesty's service and now prisoners of
war at Quebec, have thought it necessary to grant him
this certificate and do recommend him as an object
worthy of aid and compassion of every honest Englishman.

Quebec, Sept. 16th, 1757.
 
James Johnson, his wife, Susannah Willard (dau of Lieut.
Moses Willard and Susannah (Hastings) Willard) together
with her sister, Mirriam Willard, Peter Labaree and
Ebenezer Farnsworth were taken prisoners Aug. 30, 1754
by the Indians and carried to Canada.
 
Mrs. Johnson with her two youngest daughters and her
sister Mirriam Willard after remaining in captivity
eighteen months, were conveyed in a cartel ship to
England and arrived in New York on the 10th of December
1757.
 
She met her husband after his release in Boston, at
two o'clock in the morning Jan 1, 1758 (and in her own
words, "I again embraced my dearest friend. Happy New
Year."
 
A few days after this meeting James Johnson set out for
New York to adjust his accounts in Canada.  On his this
journey he was pursuaded by Governor Pownal to take a
Captain's commission and join the forces bound for
Ticonderoga, where he fell at the breast work on the 8th
of July 1758 in the battle that proved also fatal to
Lord Howe.   His commission was dated at Boston, March
30th 1758 in the 31st year of reign of His Majesty, George
the Second (England).  He was commissioned to be captain
of a company in the batallion of light infantry, to be
formed out of the forces then raised by the Governor
for a general invasion of Canada, commanded by Colonel
Oliver Patridge.
 
Thomas Putnam of Charlestown, NH, afterwards Deacon
Thomas Putnam, was in his company as a sergeant, and
gave the following account of the manner in which he was
killed.
 
"On the 8th of July, 1758, Capt. Johnson's company was
ordered on the left wing of the army, and we arrived
within gunshot of the breast work, when the enemy fired
upon us.  We in turn fired at them, whenever we had a
chance to get sight of their heads above the breast work
till we had discharged a dozen or more shots, at which
time the firing appeared to cease on the part of the
enemy.  Immediately the enemy hoisted a flag, which was
supposed by Capt. Johnson and others, to be a signal
that they were about to give up to our army.  A part of
his company being still at some distance to the left,
Capt. Johnson ordered me to go immediately to the left
to have those cease firing, saying with joy "The day
(or battle) is ours."  I immediately set out climbing
over brush, trees and logs, lying eight or ten feet
from the ground; when stepping on a tree some rods
distance from where I left Capt. Johnson, there was a
full volley fired from the enemy. 
 
I escaped from being wounded, a ball only grazing my hat. 
I let myself down as soon as I could and made the best way
possible to escape their fire.
 
 I soon found some of my companions
that were with Capt. Johnson, who gave me the melancholy
tidings of his being shot through the head and of his
having expired instantly on the spot where I had left
him.  His body was left on the ground, but his arms and
equipage, together with some of his clothing were brought
off.
 
 I was acquainted with him from my youth, knew him
in the former war when a Lieutenant under the command of
Edward Hartwell, posted at Lunenburg, Townsend and
Narragansett, Fort No. 2, etc.  He was universally be-
loved by his company and equally lamented at his death.
 
He was the soldier's friend and a friend to his country,
was of easy manners, pleasant, good humored, yet strict
to obey his orders and see that those under his command
did the same.  The loss to his wife and family was
irreparable.  His acquaintance also lost an agreeable
companion, a valuable member of society as well as a
faithful and valiant Soldier."
