    Biography
    •    JOHN DAMON, immigrant ancestor, was born in England in 1621. He came in 1633 from Reading, England, and settled in Reading, Ma.

In 1676 he was lieutenant of the Reading military company. His widow died in 1713.  He died 8 April 1708. His home in Reading was on the common, where formerly the Quinnapowitt House stood and he also had a homestead on Cowdrey Hill, where now ore lately an old cellar hole marked the site of the house. [1912] He drew a lot of land also on Bear brook at the head of the great pond; his son Samuel occupied this lot and his grandson Daniel built there the Damon mansion, which at the time it was erected was one of the best dwelling houses in Middlesex county.  At last accounts it was still owned by his descendants. [1912] He married Abigail Sherman about 1645. She was a daughter of Richard Sherman, merchant of Boston. Children: John, b. and d. in 1651; John, b. 18 Mar. 1652; Abigail, 26 Aug. 1654; Samuel, 23 June 1656; Joseph, 28 Sept. 1661.
