    Notes 
    • "When the alarm was given in Concord that the British soldiers were coming, Josiah Meriam, with his sons Josiah, Jr., and Timothy, went to the village, and were later among the forces at the North Bridge, and probably crossed the meadows and appeared again at the encounter near the house. Joseph, Josiah's youngest son, then seven years old, remained at home, as he always said, 'to take care of the women', and soon went with them to a place of refuge behind the hill. The British soldiers entered the house, helped themselves to whatever breakfast they could find, taking the unbaked pies from the oven..." [5]
