Hope And Frances, Martha (Richmond) Daggett's Twins

5702.  MARTHA RICHMOND (8) (William 7, Gilbert 6, Ichabod 5, William 4, Silvester 3, Edward 2, John 1) was born January 17, 1806.  She married, December 4, 1833, Capt. Henry Daggett of Rye, N.Y.  He died about 1851.  She lived in Bristol, R.I., in 1860.

 This Hope Daggett?
One of the sensations of the hour during my sojourn in Springfield, was
an encounter between the State Street Baptist Church and Hope Daggett,
one of its members. The disaffected sister had at sundry times and in
divers manners made herself so obnoxious to the congregation, by her
strong-minded peculiarities, that an officer was called upon the scene
and requested to eject by force, if necessary, the eccentric and
uncompromising Hope. Officer Maxwell, suiting the action to the word,
seized the unruly sister, and without stopping to consider the sudden
fame which this act would launch upon him, thrust her into the street,
amid the cheers and taunts of friends and enemies. Now it was the
peculiar misfortune of Miss Daggett to have a wooden leg, and on the day
following this tragic affair the press of Springfield was devoted to
various accounts of the engagement, in which Maxwell and the wooden leg
figured alternately. [Source]
