Birthplace according to 1994 IGIMary Smead, born about 1741, was captured by the French and Indians along
with her parents and four brothers and sisters, from Fort Massachusetts on
20 August 1746. They were carried to Canada and eventually redeemed, altho
the mother died in captivity. The following is an account of what happened
one night after they were taken captive:

"The first night after the capture, Mary was wrapped in a blanket by a
French Soldier and soon fell asleep by his side. During the night she awoke
and crept out into the dark in search of her friends whom she expected to
recognize by feeling the hair of the sleeper; after some searching she found
two men lying together whom she took to be her brothers, John and David. and
she closely nestled down between them and was soon asleep again. The
Frenchmen, missing her, went out with a blazing torch to find her. Who can
picture

the dismay of the child, when by its light she saw her companions to be two
hideous Indian warriors instead of her brothers. She was quite willing to
return to the tent."

She came back from Canada motherless and was brought up by the family of
Rev.

Timothy Woodbridge of Hadley. She married Aaron Willard of Charlestown,, NH,

formerly known as Fort #4.
