I have some info on Daniel and why Hannah Brewer (both my ancestors) was widowed.In short, Daniel and his nephew were hanged for murder.
A Gloria Goble Steen noted: "The court records of 1676 state that Daniel Goble, Stephen Goble, Nathaniel Wilde, and Daniel Hoare were indicted, tried and found guilty for the murders of three Indian women and three Indian children. The killings took place on or about August 7, 1676. This was just five days before King Philip's war ended. (Daniel pleaded not guilty to the charge.)
"The Goble men were farmer and both received the prescribed punishment. Daniel Hoare and Nathaniel Wilde being from more affluent families and having connections with the clergy, presented a petition to the court begging pardon for their lives, which the court granted. The court fined them and they were discharged. "
Not pretty times. Apparently the trial and punishment was meant to send a message to both colonists and native americans. As you point out, these confrontations continued and 30 years later our ancestor Hannah was killed in Lancaster MA.
