      Moses Caverly Jr as we have stated, camed to Barrington with the father and Thomas. He located his farm on a new highway, as it was then spotted out, and has ever since been called the Province road. This road passes from Dover and Madbury, along the easterly side of Bow Lake, to Barnstead. The land was them adorned with its native forest, full and fresh as the God of Nature had left it. Its lofty old trees then doubtless bore many a scar from the tomahawk of the native tribes, who had hunted beneath their shades for thousands of years. His farm, well known, is the one situated next northerly ot that which is not owned and occupied by John S Caverly Esq of Barrington.

      The same Moses Jr with his wife Hannah Johnson whom he had married in Portsmouth about the year 1742, turned the forest of their farm into a fruitful field, and died there at about the beginning of the present century. Rude, enlettered stones at the rear of their old mansion, still standing, mark their graves.

      Moses Caverly, born in Porstmouth, 1719; married Hannah Johnson in 1741. He was a merchant, barber and hairdresser, and carried on this triple line of business some years in his vative town. His account-book, containing a vast number of entries with the names of his patrons, is now in the writer's possession. It is a great curiosity, and covers the business period of his life, from 1742 to 1752. He relinquished business in Portsmouth about the year 1754, and removed to Barrington, to which town his father, Moses, had removed some eight years before. The father and son were among the early settlers of that township, and both died there, the latter March 17, 1795, and Hannah his wife in 1802.
