Francis Perley1

b. April 15, 1765, d. May 23, 1793
  • THIS LISTING HAS NOT YET BEEN AUDITED, AND MAY NOT BE ACCURATE; A.
  • Francis Perley was born on April 15, 1765.1
  • He was the son of Nathaniel Perley and Mehitable Perley.1
  • He and John Chapman, Jr. went a-fishing on Hood's Pond, 23 May 1793, when Francis in casting anchor, about twenty rods (330 feet) from the western shore, capsized the boat, to which John clung for rescue, but Francis, trusting to his skill in swimming, was drowned. Major Asa, in his seventy-sixth year, heard the outcries and went to the shore. He swam to the boat, but the anchor held too strongly. He swam to the shore, and with others who had arrived converted a barn-door into a raft and John was rescued. Francis was in the water two hours. The Salem Gazette reads: "He was a man of strict integrity, had the universal esteem of his acquaintances, whose united testimony of his worth will sufficiently embalm his memory." He was not married.

    The improvised raft was doubtless obtained at the home "within a hundred feet of the western end of the pond, and known since 1712 as the Hood estate, which was, in 1906, the residence of S. D. Hood, Esq.1
