Captain Gorham and his company were in the sanquinary battle at the Swamp Fort in the Narraganset country, fought December 19, 1675. That battle was decisive in its results. It not only crushed the power of the Narragansetts, but it destroyed the hope of King Philip and his allies - - the extermination of the white race in New England.

Captain Gorham never recovered from the cold and fatigue to which he was exposed in this expedition. He was seized with a fever and died at Swansea where he was buried Feb. 5, 1675-6.

Colonel John Gorham gives a different version of Captain John's death in his Wast Book: ... and there Was Wownded by having his poudr Horn Shot and Split against his side and wownded -- and Dyed att Swansey...

Captain John Gorham was fifty-four years of age at his death.
