JOB SHATTUCK (11 February 1736/6–13 January 1819) — 5G Grandfather
Job Shattuck was 1st lieutenant in Capt. Josiah Sartell’s company of Massachusetts militia at the Lexington Alarm, 19 April 1775 [Hambrick-Stowe and Smerlas 60]. (Or in Capt. Asa Lawrence’s company according to Shattuck .) He was later 1st lieutenant in Capt. Henry Haskell’s company of Col. William Prescott’s 10th Regiment at the battle of Bunker Hill, 17 June 1775 (certificate of merit signed by Prescott). He was commissioned Captain 12 February 1776, and served thereafter in the 7th company of Col. John Robinson’s Regiment, Col. Jonathan Reed’s Regiment, Gen. Brickett’s Brigade. Saratoga Campaign: 2nd Co., Col. Jonathan Reed’s 6th Mass Regiment from 16 July 1776 to close of the war. Butler  reports his service as follows: “February 25, 1776, he received a captain’s commission from the Council of Massachusetts, for a short time only, ending on the first of April following. Under this commission, he marched with a company of seventy-five men, exclusive of subalterns and musicians, to Boston, about the time that town was evacuated by the British troops. This service lasted only eight days. In 1776, he commanded a company raised in Groton and the neighboring towns, and marched with them to Ticonderoga and Saratoga, and returned in January, 1777. In July, 1779, he received a captain’s commission from the Council of Massachusetts, of the second company in the sixth regiment of Massachusetts militia, which office, it is supposed, he held till the peace.” “During the whole period of the revolution,” Shattuck writes [122–123],he spent much time and monty, performed very important public services, and at all times exhibited great bravery, energy, and self-sacrificing patriotism. On one occasion, in 1780, finding it difficult to obtain men, he consented that his two sons should volunteer for the service, notwithstanding the demand for labor upon his farm. Ezekiel wento to Rhode Island; Job, Jr. went to West Point, and was there when Arnold deserted and André was executed. The father’s conduct on this occasion was so highly approved, that his townsmen “made a bee,” by which some thirty men reaped and gathered about 400 bushels of rye in one day.
SARAH (HARTWELL) SHATTUCK (19 March 1738–5 May 1798) — 5G Grandmother Sarah (Hartwell) Shattuck, the wife of Job Shattuck, “was one of those patriotic women known in her neighborhood as ‘Mrs. David Wright’s Guard.’ A few days after the 19th of April, 1775, it was expected that Leonard Whiting of Hollis, N.H., a noted tory, would pass through Pepperell to Groton; and a number of noble women, partly clothed in their absent husbands’ apparel, and armed with muskets, pitchforks, and such other weapons as they could find, collected at the bridge over the Nashua River, between these two towns, now known as Jewett’s Bridge. They elected Mrs. Wright as their commander; and resolved that no foe to freedom should pass that bridge. Soon Whiting appeared, and he was immediately arrested and searched; and despatches from Canada to the British in Boston were found in his boots. He was taken to the house of Solomon Rogers in the neighborhood, and there detained, securely guarded by the women over night. He was afterwards conducted to Groton, and the treasonable correspondence was forwarded to the Committee of Safety” Mrs. Wright had named her son, born in 1774, " Liberty ". It had just than died; but to perpetuate the noble sentiments she entertained, she gave thesame name to another son born three years later.

Name: Capt Job SHATTUCK
Birth: 11 Feb 1735/36 in Groton, Mass.
Death: 13 Jan 1819 in died @ residence of Noah Shattuck, Groton, Mass
Job Shattuck was a son, the youngest of eight children, of William Shattuck and was born at Groton, on Feb... 11, 1736. He began his militarylife as a private in Capt. Ephraim Jones`company, which served in an expedition to Nova Scotia under Col. John Winslow in 1755 to bring away the poor French families from that Provence. He went as a First Lieut.in a militia company that marched from Groton on April 19, 1775, of which Josiah Sartell was Captain, and Shattuck Blood, Second Lieutenant. There is no record at the State House to show that he was at the Battle of
Bunker Hill, as has been stated in print. His name is found next on the muster roll of Capt Henry Haskell`s company, dated at Cambridge, Jan 13,1776, where he appears still as a First Lieut. On another document (Mass.
Archives, XLI.48 , dated Jan, 1776, he appears as the captain of a company recently formed, and was duly commissioned by the Council, on February 12. This company went to Boston when the town was evacuated by the British
troops in March. Throughout the War Capt Shattuck`s career was honorable and patriotic, and no soldier had a better record for military service,Unfortunately for his good name, a few years later, he became a leader in Shay`s Rebellion, which broke out during a very gloomy period in the history of the Commonwealth. While there may have been some extenuating circumstances connected with the movement, no valid excuse can be given for the steps then taken in order to right political wrongs. It is enough
to say that Capt Shattuck, for his part in the insurrection, was tried and convicted of treason, and sentenced to be hanged on Jun 28, 1787, but on the day before this, a reprieve was granted until July 26; then, on the day preceding this, the execution was again postponed to Sept 20; and on the 12th of that month he received a full and unconditional pardon. It is but just to the memory, however, to add that he was a member of the church and much respected by the townsmen. At the time of the rebellion he was near middle age of life, and a man of great bodily vigor. He was the son of a respected farmer, and himself a large landowner. Strong and athletic in person, skilled in the use of the broadsword and proud of the accomplishment, utterly insensible to fear and having a good war record, all these qualities aided by his position and means, gave him great influence among his neighbors. He paid dearly for his errors, as the
crutch which he used until the day of his death would testify; and we can well afford now to be charitable to the memory of the poor misguided men who took part in that needless and wicked rebellion. Captain Shattuck died at the home of his youngest son Noah at Groton, on Jan 13, 1819. He was married, first, on May 25,1758, to Sarah, eldest child of Samuel and Sarah ( Holden ) Hartwell, who was born on Mar 19, 1738, and died on May 5, 1798; and secondly on May 2, 1800, to Mrs. Elizibeth Gragg. daughter of William and Miriam Lakin, and widow of John Gragg, to whom she was married on Oct 19, 1763, who died on June 1, 1824, five years after the death of her second Husband.
