  • Name John LORING  [1
    • He resided in Hull; was town clerk seventeen years, one of the selectmen nine terms, representative in 1692. His son Israel became a minister and wrote a very affectionate and particular obituary upon his father, which is preserved in the archives of the Massachusetts Historical Society, and in the copy of that document in Mr. James Spear Loring's manuscript volume in the New England Historic Genealogical Society, Several items of interest are worth quoting:
      "Mr. John Loring while a boy of five years definitely determined to be a good chid of his heavenly Father and was earnestly religious all through his life. His wife attributed her own conversion to his influence. He was very solicitous to secure the conversion of his children. He began with them when they were young, tender and flexible, to put them in mind of God their Creator, and the things tat belong to their everlasting peace... He was a great reader... His was a religious family; the morning and evening sacrifice were duly offered up and on the Lord's Day evenings the sermons, which at meeting he took down in characters, were repeated." He cut his foot at one time, and the wound developed into a malignant sore, which gave him extreme pain. After a famous physician of Boston had treated the foot and failed to cure it or relieve the agony, a friend of Mrs. Loring,"Mrs. Whitmore of Medford, a doctress," came to visit the family and "applying her balsom to his angry wounds he presently had rest and ease and slept soundly the night following; and, with the blessing of heaven upon her endeavors, she effected a cure." He recovered his health, and lived some time thereafter.
      He died Lord's Day morning, September 19, 1714. [1]
