|−|There appears to have been a Native American burial ground before 1600 in West Andover on the site that later became the Shattuck Farm. Although ceramics from earlier times found on the site do suggest early settlements, when the Europeans settled in what was to become Andover, there were no Native Americans in the area of the settlement. The population had been erased by a plague in the early 17th century. This is consistent with the practice that Native Americans deserted areas where there had been deaths and disease. | |
