Tombstone Tuesday - Friend to King Philip

Cole's River in Swansee, MA is named after my 8th great grandfather, Hugh Cole. Hugh was a friend of King Philip. During the King Philip's War, two of his sons were captured. King Philip released his friends sons. However, the chief warned his friend that he could no longer control his warriors and told Hugh to leave his home and set sail for Rhode Island. He did as he was told and as he was sailing away watched his house burn to the ground.
