bullet  General Notes:

The following note is adapted from "Chronicles of the Haskell Family" by Ira J. Haskell, publ. by Ellis Printing Co, Lynn, MA, 1943.

"Witchcraft" Mark born in 1650 and died in Rochester, Massachusetts on May 17, 1699. He received his nickname as a result of having been drawn for a jury to try the so- called witches. Not believing in the more or less popular schism of the day, he decided not to have anything to do with the proceedings, and the night before the trial he packed up and rode away. Family traditions tell us that he travelled as far as possible without a stop, eventually camping on the shores of Lake Assawamsett in Lakevil le (Plymouth Co., MA). He went to his brother John in Middleboro, and on his advice settled in Rochester (Plymouth Co., MA), thus founding the Rochester clan of Haskells. However, since his family did not follow until 1697 -8 they endured five years of separation. 7
