Daniel Blaisdell came to Cambridge, from Ware, N. H., (Weare, NH ???) at an early day, and located near the Borough, though he finally located upon the old homestead, on road 2. He reared a family of eleven children, four of whom settled in the town, and died in 1865, aged ninety years. Ralph, the fourth born, and only son now living, was born in 1813, and now resides within fifteen rods of his birthplace, having never been out of the town for a period exceeding four weeks at one time during his life. Daniel Blaisdell, 2d, son of Daniel, born in 1800, always resided here, and reared a family of nine sons, only one of whom, Daniel, Jr., is now a resident of the town. Jonathan Blaisdell, a brother of Daniel, came here with Daniel, and located in the northern part of the town, where he died in 1842, aged seventy years: Of his family of seven children, two became residents of the town. Monro, his fifth son, born in 1818, now resides on road 16. It is said he was the first to introduce pure blood Jersey cattle into the town of Fletcher.
