Notes for Lt. Roger PLAISTED
Lt. Roger Plaisted was killed by the Indians during the start of King Philips War, an attempt to kill all the white people in New England. King Philip's war is the bloodiest war in American history. There are two historical accounts of his battle with the Indians. He was greatly outnumbered. He fought bravely. Both he and one of his sons were killed. Samuel Plaisted, one of his grandons, who graduated from Harvard in the class of 1715, was buried on the spot that Roger Plaisted was killed above Salmon Falls near Berwick, Maine. This gravestone is in magnificant condition even though it is more than 250 years old.
