Today for we look to an Adams, but probably not the one you’re thinking of!
Hannah Adams was born in Medfield October 2, 1755(Medfield broke off from Dedham in 1650). She was a shy and sickly child, so she did not attend school. Though her father was a graduate of Harvard College, so he taught her at home.
She became an accomplished professional writer, writing this title here ‘A Summary History of New-England’ as well as ‘A View of Religions’ and ‘History of the Jews’.
Pictured here, this title was published in Dedham, MA. It is part of the Imprints Collection at the If you want to learn more about Hannah Adams check out the Medfield Historical Society they have a collection about her!!
I did some googling.

I used to live on Mt. Nebo (Eastmount Road) in the 1980s, and I was always curious about what exactly happened on the hill in the runup to King Philip's War. Have there been any archaeological digs done there? Has anyone made a map of Metacom's attack, or other trails that they used before the English settlers arrived?
Just wondering, Vincent Bravo was my uncle and I inherited the flag that was used as his funeral... I would like to donate it to the medfield historical society if they are interested. I a going to visit his only surviving sister in Thomas Upham Nursing home in a few weeks and I can bring it with me..
