m. April 16, 1767. Martha Rice of Westboro, Mass.

Animated by the restless spirit and tireless energy which
makes the best pioneer material, he could not content him to
remain in the Massachusetts colony, then becoming an old
community as it had always been a staid one, but found his
way into the '•Granite State" and settled in the hill country, so thickly wooded, of Henniker. Merrimac Co. The first emigrants to this State were largely from the north of Ireland, transplant-ed Scotch, sent there from Scotland to leaven the Roman Catholicism of the Emerald Isle, failing which, they found swept refuge in the wilds of this mountainous region, whose sceaery and climate were akin to their loved Scotia. In a community thus penetrated with the sincere piety, sterling sense, and physical vigor for which the Scots are eminent, Mr. Child found a congenial home. Mrs. Martha Rice Child d. in Henniker. Aug.20, 1804, aged 56 years. Mr. Solomon Child m. 2d, Mrs. Sarah Goodell Ward of Henniker. widow of Capt. Josiah Ward of that town, and dau. of Nathan and Persis Whitney Goodell of Marlborough. Mass. Mr. S. Child d. Feb. 1826, aged 84 years,leaving quite a family to honor his memory and emulate his

Elias Child history.
