Before Boston was a town, before Cambridge, before Medford or Bedford - in 1630 - two separate English settling parties paddled up the Charles River to a green place whose Indian name sounded to some of them like “Pigs-go-suck.” It became the historically-pivotal community of Watertown, with our family there in force. Charlestown was already in place; New Towne (later Cambridge) would shortly have its beginnings, half-way between them, at what we now call Harvard Square.
