DIED- In Manchester, on the 16th [January,1847], inst., Molly Smith, aged 100 years, and four days. Mrs. S. was one of the mothers of the Revolution, one of whom several anecdotes respecting those trying scenes are told. At the period of the Revolution, she resided at the north part of the county. The tory band which made their quarters at Arlington, (from hatred to her husband who was in the camp at Bennington,) sought to destroy their dwelling. She packed her goods, and secreted herself and children among the ledges and rocks in a neighboring wood, and watched the movement of her enemies, and in the night she left and came with her children to Bennington, a distance of some 20 miles, and gave notice to the army of the works of the tories.
