    • On 23 June 1675 John Salisbury, the 20 year old son of William, fired the first shot of King Philip's War when he mortally wounded an Indian who was pilfering his house. The next day the Indians returned, shot and killed William Salisbury, "his wife not far off, heard the guns go off, went back: they took her, first defiled her, then skinned her head, as also the son, and dismist them both who immediately died." [Early Rehoboth 3:10-11]. Only John and William are listed as slain 24 June 1675; Susanna survived. She was granted administration of William's estate 25 Aug 1675; admitted to Dorchester Church 7 May 1677, dismissed to Milton church 18 Sep 1681. [1]
