Family Photos In Haverhill


Hannah Emerson Dustin, was a heroine of the early Indian wars in New England. At the time of the attack on Haverhill MA., Mar 15, 1697, the Indians captured Hannah and her nurse, Mary Neff, and killed the youngest Dustin child who was only a week old. Thomas, with their other seven children, managed to escape death. The captives were assigned to an Indian family of 12 persons and led to a larger village. On an island, now called Dustan's Island, near Concord, Hannah and her nurse, assisted by a captive English boy, Samuel Leonardson, killed and scalped all of their captors except one squaw and a small boy. Afterward they reached their homes in safety. Their exploit has furnished the theme for much romance and verse. The name is also spelled Dustan and Duston.
