1623 Humphrey Hodges

Birth: 1623 in Charlestown, Massachusetts, United States
Death: 1680 in Barbados

Humphrey was brought up in the Mystic neighborhood. He was just fourteen years old when the Puritans added their force to the struggling Pilgrims and went to massacre the Indians who were his neighbors, trading partners, and probably playmates. The surviving Indians were enslaved and taken to Barbados. Much later Humphrey happened to be in Barbados when he died.
