      "He also, like his father and grandfather, was deacon in the Congregational Church, which office he held many years until his death. He was also familiarly known as "major", which rank he held in the old-time militia service on "training day". He had also been a master mason for a number of years. His funeral was attended at the Congregational Church, the services being conducted by his long-time pastor and friend, the Rev. Thomas C. Biscoe, then of Uxbridge." [2]
