    He made his will, Sept. 26, 1727, in which he calls himself a millright, or rather "millwrith"; in the old family burying ground at North Dennis is a grave stone to his memory, and another to the memory of his wife; he removed to Harwich, Mass., and was chosen selectman of that town in 1710, and continued in office for thirteen years, and was chosen representative in 1712 , and was continued in office for three years; he was a committee to repair the church in 1717. It appears from the records that he sometimes acted as a minister of the gospel; the town of Chatham, Mass., voted, in 1703, to give him L26 for preaching for that town one year; he complied with their request, and also preached in that town again in 1706, and perhaps for several other years, he also received a salary for preaching in harwich; his residence in harwich is pointed out as near what is now known as Hall's meadow. To his son Jonathan he gave his homestead and other property; to his son Samuel he gave a good portion of land by deeds; to grandson Edward he gave a good portion; to grandson Gershom he gave his silver tankard, cane, best gun, with means for procuring his education, especially in reading and writing.
