      "Alexander Hodges testified that he ‘came to Passamaquoddy with Joseph Parsons from Old York, in the employ of Robert Gould and Francis Shaw, of Boston, in the Indian trade, and landed at Pleasant Point the tenth day of August in the year one thousand seven hundred and sixty-three.’  At the time of his arrival the country was a mere wilderness; no families were settled in it.  They erected a hut on Pleasant Point, which was the first one at Passamaquoddy, one at Indian Island excepted.  Hodges seems to have remained about Passamaquoddy for some years as a hunter, and finally settled at Pleasant Point.  Boyd calls him a very illiterate man,5 and states that he first came as a servant to Frost. "

      This is an excerpt from a google site. Does anyone know which Joseph Parsons, the author is referring to?

      Thank you,
