hose trainings we of latter days have witnessed, is mentioned for the first time in the First Roster, in 1787; but, in the earlier and more confused records, there is recognition of a Medford company in 1781. The names of the officers are erased! A vacuum then occurs. After this, the commanders of the company were as follows:-- Moses Hallchosen CaptainJan. 12, 1787. Samuel TeelMarch 29, 1788. Abijah UsherMay 26, 1795. Gardner GreenleafOct. 23, 1798. Samuel NewellApril 17, 1801. Nathan AdamsApril 26, 1802. Samuel ThompsonApril 3, 1804. Until this time, this company had belonged to the first regiment of the first brigade of the third division; but now a new regiment, the fifth, was formed, and Medford, Charlestown, and Malden composed it. The next captain of the Medford company was Rufus Frost, chosen May 12, 1806. He resigned, and was discharged March 10, 1810. He was re-elected April 3, 1810, but he refused to qualify. The next captains were:-- Henry ReedchosenJu
y manifestations of natural laws were special interpositions of a vindictive Providence. We like their finishing the service. Sept. 23, 1744: Mr. Turell preached two sermons from Second Corinthians II. 11, because Ebenezer Francis allowed one Adams, a roving preacher, to come and preach at his house, against the will of Mr. Turell and a great number of the brethren, who are much offended at him and his preaching, now and heretofore. We are a little surprised at a result of this event, menting of said paper was urged by some members of Medford church who call themselves aggrieved. The council refused to hear it, for reasons offered by Mr. Osgood. It was desired by the aggrieved that a certain contest between Mr. Osgood and Captain Adams should be considered; but this was refused, as it appeared to be an article which had been laid before the council at Boxford, and concerning which they had judged and determined. It was then voted by the council to hear a sermon of Mr. Os
le over them in the gospel ministry. Yeas, 20; nays, 3. Committee of conference: Nathaniel Hall, Jonathan Brooks, and Nathan Adams, Esqs. June 14, 1823, Mr. Bigelow accepted this invitation by a long and able letter, properly noticing a condition the time specified; and Abner Bartlett, Esq., was chosen Clerk; Messrs. Jonathan Brooks, John Symmes, Darius Wait, Nathan Adams, jun., and John King, Parish Committee; Messrs. J. Richardson, John Howe, and Ebenezer Hall, jun., Assessors; William Warpassed the 9th of March, 1827; and it appears that Messrs. Jonathan Brooks, Nathaniel Hall, Turell Tufts, Dudley Hall, Nathan Adams, John Symmes, jun., and Jonathan Porter, were incorporated trustees by the said act. These originators of the fund he good effects that have resulted from it. The church has long enjoyed the counsel and services of John Symmes and Nathan Adams, Esqrs., as deacons. March 4, 1840: Voted to exchange the hymn-book now in use for Rev. Mr. Greenwood's selection.
came Seth Tufts, who, with his son Seth, carried on the business till recently. These yards were situated near Middlesex Canal and the river, about south-south-east from Rock Hill. The next in order of age were the yards opened in 1810 by Nathan Adams, Esq. They were situated each side of the old county road, leading from Medford over Winter Hill, and were about half a mile south of the Great Bridge, in the small valley on the borders of Winter Brook. From the first kiln, Captain Adams buiCaptain Adams built the house now standing on the right side of the road, twenty rods north of the kiln, as an advertisement; and the bricks show the goodness of the clay and the skill of the workmen. These yards were next occupied by Mr. Babbitt, but have been discontinued for ten or fifteen years. We presume that bricks have been made in many places now unknown to us; for nearly the whole of Medford seems to have a deep stratum of pure clay under it. The facility of procuring pine, chestnut, and hemloc
f its members, it was deemed expedient and Christian, by the Puritans, not to imitate such examples; and, accordingly, they buried their dead without funeral prayers. Neither did they read the Scriptures! What they could have substituted for these simple, rational, and impressive rites, we do not know, but presume it must have been a sermon and a hymn. The first prayer made by a clergyman at a funeral, which we have heard of, was made by Rev. Mr. Wilson, of Medfield, at the funeral of Rev. Mr. Adams, of Roxbury, Aug. 19, 1685. The first one made at a funeral in Boston was at the interment of Dr. Mayhew, 1766. The pomp and circumstance of grief were certainly not forgotten on this side of the Atlantic. At the burial of a rich man, a magistrate, or a minister, there was great parade and much expense. Mourning-scarfs, black crapes, pendulous hatbands, common gloves, and gold rings, were gratuities to the chief mourners. The officers accompanying the funeral procession bore staffs
