now in possession of Mrs. F. W. Bolande, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John H. Beach and also a great-great granddaughter of Maltbie Buckley, who was born in 1776, and was one of the children to make his escape on the family oxcart. . . .The little family who had fled, had left the wash tubs filled with water in their haste, a scout dumped the water on the flames and quickly had them extinguished."
"The red salt-box house on Beach lane, was like all houses of its type and has been altered but little within or without, except for modern conveniences and a dome window in the back of the low slanting roof. A porch is part way across the front, which was not there in the earlier days and the quaint little panes of glass in the window frames have been replaced by more modern ones. The big chimney remains and the fireplaces have been retained. . . .
