    Deacons Thomas Mighill, Jeremiah Jewett and Moses Clark Chosen. 194 [259][34]


    May 14. 1769. The Church having had, sometime ago, the

    chusing of one or more Deacons, under consideration,

    This day being stayed after the forenoon meeting, it was

    proposed, that the Brethren of it should bring in their votes

    for two Deacons wn the afternoon Meeting should be over,

    and that they which had the most votes, if they had not the

    major part of the votes given in should be tried by voting by

    the hand. And in this way of Trial, Capt John Pearson was


    chosen and desired to be excused. Then Ensign Thomas


    Mighill, Jeremiah Jewett and Moses Clark were chosen by

    the full hand votes of the Brethren,  And the Pastor


            expressed his consent to the choice of them by


                              the Church ––––

    And I think all the Brethren of the Church within the parish

    capable of attending a meeting were present, except two, or 3.
