Mary Denny Sargent
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 22, 1727
Death: Aug. 8, 1822

Oral tradition says it was Mary Denny Sargent who got the weights out of their Grandfather clock and melted them down. The local men had stopped at the Sargent house on 19 April 1775. The melted lead was made into musket balls and passed out to the men.

Mary always retained a great attachment to the Old South Church in Boston, where she often attended meetings in her early youth. He uncle Rev. Dr. Prince, was pastor of the church.

Anna Hayward Merritt update this story in the early 1900s. She reported that the clock was in the keeping of the nieces of Erasmus Jones Andrews, the Misses Andrews, at their residence on North Street. The clock, though about 150 years old is in excellent state of preservation and keeps good standard time. Anna notes that Mary's wedding dress was used by a Hayward in 1901. Mary gave a bible to Anna Sargent Hayward and Hayward births and deaths are recorded in it.
