Hannah Hazen1

b. July 3, 1764
  • THIS LISTING HAS NOT YET BEEN AUDITED, AND MAY NOT BE ACCURATE; A.
  • Hannah Hazen was born on July 3, 1764 in Boxford, Massachusetts.2
  • She was the daughter of Jacob Hazen and Abigail Perley.1
  • In 1781, Hannah Hazen was a witch. Many were the stories of her uncanny doings. Her weird acts on one occasion, while a servant girl in her teens in a family on Spofford's Hill, Georgetown, have been poetized by Mr Henry Henderson, who with poetic license depicts her fate, but those who knew well her story knew nothing of her after her removal to Maine.

    About a century since—accounts are vague—
    In seventeen eighty-one or eighty-two
    (It matters little since the tale is true)
    A wild commotion waa created here
    By the first symptom of the witchcraft plague.
    One Hannah Hazen, whom report speaks well,
    Was weaving as the shades of evening fell.
    When strange, mysterious noises caught the ear.
    And fear seized all, and rumor filled the air.
    In flocked the neighbors all agape to see
    The fair sweet worker of iniquity,
    But stood aghast with superstitious stare
    As thump, thump, thump came from the walls about,
    As If some prisoned fiend would beat his dark way out.

    Wheel, chairs and tables shrunk from touch and look;
    Even the old meal chest edged and edged away,
    Though weighted with the gossips of the day:
    Like chattering teeth the latches rattled wild.
    And where she trod the house ashivering shook.
    The clergy were called in to exorcise
    So foul a spirit in so fair a guise;
    But no rebuke availed, severe or mild.
    And consternation sat on every face!
    When from abroad the goodman now returned,
    With wrath indignant from his house he spurned
    All who had seen or sought its deep disgrace.
    Not doubting they believed, but yet too wise
    To give full credence to their doubtful ears and eyes.

    This prompt, decisive, energetic act of one
    Who thought delusion better silent die
    Than lead to the surviving infamy
    That gives old Salem her uncuvied fame
    For deeds of violence In wild frenzy done.
    Was through the love, not blind fanatic zeal.
    He felt for truth, and felt that all should feel.
    And saved the old town the ever-during shame
    Of having punished for no fault or crime
    One he would shield, but whom the righteous few
    Who wagged their tongues and knew not what to do.
    Would in the darkness of that troubled time
    Have dragged to martyrdom, had he joined the cry
    Of the unreasoning crowd who Truth would crucify.

    When driven out like Hagar in her grief,
    The chairs resumed their places prim and stiff.
    The tables ceased to tilt—all seemed as if
    No masquerading e'er had set them out
    To revel in their master's absence brief.
    So quiet reigned once more, and all went well,
    Till to the flames the house a victim fell'
    As 'twere the scene of this unseemly rout
    Should from the mind of all be swept away.
    But mothers whispered to their babes the tale,—
    Tradition caught it up.—till like a sail
    Lost in the purple deeps of dying day
    This little glimmer from the long-ago
    Flashes upon the verge ere all is sunk below.

    How fearful o'er the broken wall I stepped
    Where the poor crazy wanderer was found.
    Dead! her head between the bowlders bound;
    "A witch," some sald, "who died a witch's death!"
    And few her presence missed or memory wept.
    So far aloof we stand and cry, "unclean!"
    As if the only plague-spots were those seen.
    That children shrink and whisper under breath
    A name that might have shone as bright and falr
    As any that our reverent homage claims
    Among the brilliant galaxy of names
    That fix our eyes as God's peculiar care.
    But for the crushing of some grievous weight
    That left the troublous world so dark and desolate.2
  • Hannah married Thomas Dresser on November 16, 1791.2
  • About 1800, Hannah Hazen and Thomas Dresser moved to Andover, Oxford County, Maine.2

Marshman Williams Hazen1

b. July 28, 1840
  • THIS LISTING HAS NOT YET BEEN AUDITED, AND MAY NOT BE ACCURATE; A.
  • Marshman Williams Hazen was born on July 28, 1840 in Beverly, Massachusetts.1
  • He was the son of Greenleaf Hazen and Susan P. Towne.1
  • Marshman Williams Hazen was graduated in 1866 from Dartmouth College. His own exertions during his vacations paid his college expenses, and he may be justly called a self-made man. After graduation, he was employed in teaching, also for a time as newspaper editor. He was for a time at the head of the Boston branch of D. Appleton & Co.'s New York publishing house. He was prominently interested in introducing the decimal system of weights and measures into this country, and his success was highly gratifying to him. He was associate compiler of several of Appleton & Co.'s school books, prominent among which is a series of five readers. He introduced the "indestructible reader" for youngest scholars.1
  • In 1906, Marshman Williams Hazen was a lawyer at New York, New York County, New York.1
