      Lovewell's Men
      By Hon Ezra Scollay Stearns, AM, of Fitchburg, Massachusetts

      The official rolls of the three companies commanded by Capt John Lovewell are not preserved...

      18. Josiah Johnson, son of Benjamin and Sarah (Walker) Johnson, was born at Woburn July 28, 1702. He enlisted from Woburn, and was severly, but not mortally, wounded in the engagement. Subsequently he preferred several petitions to the General Court, and was pensioned. With wife Elizabeth, by whom he had ten children, he subsequently lived in Woburn and in Billerica, where he died about 1783. He was a cousin of John Fitch for whom Fitchburg was named, their mothers being sisters. In Butler's Groton the author relates that, in the latter part of her life, the wife of Josiah Johnson lived in the family of his father in Pelham, New Hampshire.

      This account of "Lovell's fight" is taken principally from printed sources; but some of the incidents are from the lips of the wife of Josiah Johnson, one of the men. This woman was thirteen years old, when the battle was fought, lived in Woburn, where Johnson belonged, afterwards married him, and they had a number of children. In the latter part of her life she lived in my father's family, often told the story, and always told it alike, agreeing with the printed accounts in general, and adding some particulars.
