King Philip's War
Daniel Warren, Sr. appears on a list of Watertown men who were impressed into service in King Phillip's War.[3/171] There are other records of service in this war for Daniel Warren but they might be for his son who definitely was active in the conflict, as evidenced by land grants he received in 1733 while still alive.
