In Reply to: Hezekiah - Oscar Broad by Olga Wise of 219

Hezekiah b. 1746 had a couple of wives. Lydia Bacon who died and married Miram Sawin. I have that he had a wife in between those two but unable to find a name.

Colonel Hezekiah Broad met with Commander in Chief George Washington in front of Broad's home on Eliot St. in South Natick. General Washington was on his way to take command of the new Continental Army surrounding General Gage's regiments in Boston. Said General Washington upon his visit to Natick, "The roads in every part of this state are amazingly crooked. . . and the directions you get from the inhabitants are equally blind and ignorant." Col. Broad was a delegate to the 1774 Provincial Congress in Concord, MA and the 1787 Constitutional Convention. He married Lydia Bacon Broad in 1770. After Lydia's death he married 23 year old Miriam Sawin Broad when he was 67. Today Hezekiah Broad lies buried between his wives in the South Natick Burial Ground along with many other of the original Natick Minutemen.

My family line follows this Hezekiah's father's lineage.
