According to the Brackett Genealogy by H. I. Brackett . . . "Joshua Brackett, the son of Thomas Brackett [burial unknown] and grandson of Anthony Brackett, the immigrant, was born in Falmouth. The year of his birth is not known; he, himself, probably did not know with certainty his age, for all town and parish records were destroyed and both of his parents died during his childhood, his father having killed by the Indians and his mother having succumbed to the hardships of captivity while in the hands of the same foe. . . . The grave of Joshua is on the home farm. On the tombstone, marking his last resting-place, is the following inscription:" [see below]
