. . . Near this place lies buried the body of Roger Plaisted, who was killed by the Indians, October 16, 1675, AE, 48 years; also the body of his son, Mr. Roger Plaisted, who was killed at the same time. Near this same spot, although unmentioned on the stone, rest the remains of Isaac Botts (Bottes), who fell a sacrifice in behalf of the common cause. As was partly indicated, he was one of the men sent out originally to reconnoitre, and one of the two who fell in the little swamp near the house. As we saw, here the battle took place when the bodies were about to be laid on the cart. Thus they were all buried hastily very near this spot. In the garrison near by was Isaac Botts' wife, Elizabeth. They could not have been married long, and the separation must have been an unusually sad experience for her. She afterwards became the wife of our Moses and lived for many years. Hence this stone lying upon the little mound in Berwick marks for us not only the grave of one nearly connected with the family by marriage, but it is in the vicinity of one of our great-grandmother's homes abt the time of King Philip's war of 1675. . . .
