In Marshfield, March 21st, 1773, it is written: "In the night, the inhabitants there were waked with a very loud noise and considerable jar of the houses, which they took to be an earthquake; but it is since conjectured that it was occasioned by the severe frost as it was heard several times, sometimes louder than at others, by many, who rose immediately. The ground is cracked in many places several yards in length so wide that a man may put his whole arm into the chasms."
