WILLIAM MARSH,

“came into town just previous to the Revolutionary War. He adhered to the royal cause and was obliged to flee to Canada, leaving his family behind. Mrs. MARSH, to secure some of her more valuable goods, filled her brass kettle with her pewter ware and silver spoons, and sunk them in a pond near her dwelling. The pond, however, so far as the recovery of her treasures were concerned, proved bottomless.”
