Excerpt from The History of Hillsborough, New Hampshire, 1735-1921, Vol. 1 At last, after thirty-eight years of anticipation, the written History of Hillsborough has come to be a reality. Without apology for its delay, which in many respects was unavoidable; without excuse for its many errors, which inevitably apply to a work of this kind; but in the same good faith with which it was undertaken, and with sincere appreciation for the co-operation given him by the publication committee and citizens, the author now offers his work to the public, the best he could do under the circumstances. The data has been secured from varied sources, and much of it at the cost of time that has seemed wasted. The historical narrative is, the undersigned believes, to be as free from mistakes as any work of its kind. The errors are mainly those that relate to names, and these are largely due to the carelessness with which they have been recorded. For instance, among the Revolutionary patriots appears the name of "Judge" Hall, anon "Jude" Hall, credited to Amherst, to Kingston, and then to Hillsborough, making it difficult to determine who he really was and where he lived. Since writing this history I have learned that he was born in Exeter, was a slave a part of his life; that he lived a short time in Hillsborough; served three enlistments in the Revolution, and was considered a brave and patriotic soldier. He was known in this state until his death as "Old Rock." This statement applies in many cases to the records of those who served in the wars. Mr. Smith, in his "Annals," written only a little over half a century following the Revolution, says he does not doubt that over thirty served to the credit of the town. The undersigned, at this late date, has been able to trace over ninety, and believes there were still others. The records of the recent wars are more complete, but even these that are official lack an occasional name. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of
