ancestor of John Calvin Coolidge
MRS. ADDIE J. PERKINS, Ipswich St. The eastern end of this two story house was built by Nathaniel Hood, for his own occupancy, in 1746-7 (Hist. Colls. Vol. III, p. 166). A large addition, probably the western end of the house, was built for Abraham Hobbs, sen., in 1768, and in 1776, another addition was made. The one story building near this house was built about 1800, by Benjamin Hobbs for his son Daniel, and was originally used for a store. At one time a man named Newman kept a store here, and afterwards, a man named Butler. After a number of years it was used for a shop, and in 1860 it was fitted up for a dwelling-house and has been occupied as such ever since. In the field behind this house is a heap of stones near a solitary birch tree that marks the site of the Ensigne Thomas Howlett house which was built about 1650 and which disappeared over one hundred years ago. (See Hist. Colls. Vol. II, p. 54).
