Katherine also sometimes spelled Catharine
HUTSON also spelled HUTSOUN.

She was previously married to Robert Shorthus or Shorthose who lived inCharlestown during the time period 1634-1638. The name Shorthouse iscommon in English records during the 1500's and 1600's. This nameoccurs near where the Smedley's grew up and it is possible thatKatherine knew Baptist Smedley earlier before she left England. It isalso possible that Baptist Smedley, upon his arrival in America, wentfirst to Charlestown and met her and her husband there.?The NEGH Register for October 1935 has an article about a letter from awoman in Hempstead, New York to her attorney in Charlestown,Massacusetts concerning the disposal of a house there, The house wasowned by Dr. Thomas Starr and passed through inheritance to his widowRachael Starr. The letter, written September 5, 1666, says to "SellStarr house or let it out for rent...lett my Aunt Smedley have the refusalof it, for if shee will give anything likely I had rather shee had it ratherthan another..."

Samuel Smedley was killed byIndians at Quabaug, near Brookfield, Massachusetts August 2, 1675. Thiswas during King Phillip's War and Captain Thomas Wheeler, Samuel'swife's uncle, had raised a small force of about 20 men from the Concordarea to escort a group that was to negotiate with Indians in the areawith the hope of securing and end to hostilities in the region. The forcereached Brookfield and attempted to find the Indians at a pre-arrangedsite about five miles from Brookfield. When they did not find them, theymarched further and were ambushed near a swamp by a force estimatedto number from between 200-300 Indians. Eight men, Samuel Smedleyincluded, fell quickly and were later buried in an obscure grave that hasnever been located.??After Samuel's death, there was an inventory placed on file at theProbate Records of the Town of Concord by the administrator of SamuelSmedley.
