Samuel Lenorson Housesite Marker, Worcester, Massachusetts

Tablet on Davis Tower, Lake Park, Quinsigamond State Park, Worcester, MA. It was placed by the Worcester Society of Antiquities in 1910 but stolen in the 1960s. The tablet reads: "On this site stood the home of Samuel Lenorson. This tablet is erected in memory of his son Samuel who at twelve years of age was stolen by the Indians in 1695. His master joined in the attack on Haverhill in 1697, assisting in the capture of Mrs. Hannah Dustin and Mrs. Neff. On the march toward Canada while encamped on an island near Concord, N. H., these captives, led by Mrs. Dustin, killed ten of the Indians and thus regaining their liberty returned to their homes."
