Captain John Parker's Company Lexington Lexington Fought on Lexington Common, First Company in the Contest. As no claim for services on April 19 was filed with the Commonwealth, I have no official Roll. Hudson, in his “History of Lexington,” gives the names of one hundred and twenty as constituting the Company, and in the genealogical department of the same work gives several others. In the depositions of participants published in the “Journals of Each Provincial Congress of Massachusetts, 1774-5,” are quite a number who named themselves as of Parker's Company, one of them being Phillip Russell; and Moses Harrington, in the same, places “Jr.” after his name. In this Company I have also included the two Woburn men, Robert Douglass and Sylvanus Wood, who joined Parker on the Common at break of day and accepted his invitation to become members for that occasion.
Captain David Brown's Company Concord Concord Entered the Contest At Concord. In the vicinity of Concord there were two regiments, one of militia under Col. James Barrett of Concord, with Ezekiel How of Sudbury at Lieutenant Colonel, and one of minute-men under Col. Abijah Pierce of Lincoln, with Thomas Nixon of Framingham as Lieutenant Colonel, and John Buttrick of Concord as Major. These two regiments did not appear as such at the North Bridge, the entire force there at the opening being under the command of Barrett, who directed the advance to be led by Major Buttrick. Quite a number of the Companies of each were in line, but not in regimental formation.

No claims for service were filed with the Commonwealth in their behalf, therefore, I can present no official Rolls. I found in Tolman's “Concord Minute Men” a roster of Brown's Company, and for those constituting Miles's Company I am indebted to the rare original manuscript belonging to the late Dr. Charles E. Clark of Lynn, and which was sold at auction by C.F. Libbie & Co., in Boston, Jan. 15, 1901, for $275.00.
