Groton, Massachusetts, USA
Groton Inn, Built 1770, Groton, Massachusetts

"The Groton Inn was a historic inn on Main Street in Groton, Massachusetts.

The Old Groton Inn was an inn consisting of three historic structures located in Groton, Massachusetts. The oldest structure was complete in 1678, making the inn the oldest in the United States. From 1797 until 1847 the inn served as a meeting place for St. Paul's Masonic Lodge, where Paul Revere was Grand Master. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. The inn was severely damaged by fire in August 2011. Attempts were made to save the front of the building, which was barely harmed by a fire which severely damaged the rest of the structure, but the owners chose to demolish the inn in November 2011..." wikipedia

Farnworth Matthias, s. Matthias and Sarah, Aug. 6, 1690. CTR
From cgi-bin/ igm.cgi?op=GET&db=lttlefeathr&id=I2911

'Matthias II is born in Lynn in 1649 during his father's first marriage with a woman whose name is still unknown. In 1681, he marries Sara Nutting who bears him at least five children.

Among these, a third Matthias, born in Groton on August 6, 1690. Toward 1700, the family lives in the vicinity of Deerfield (in fact in Groton) Massachusetts. At that place, it is attacked by surprise in one of the numerous Canadian raids against New England villages. On August 11, a teenager is captured by the Indians. This teenager is Matthias III, son and grandson of the Matthias Farnsworth. He doesn't read nor write. Furthermore, he doesn't speak French nor the language of the indian tribe that adopts him. The child's fate seems to arouse the interest of the French who make attempts to purchase his freedom. In doing so, they have two goals: convert him and, if possible, integrate him to their society.
