Second Report of the Record Commissioners Relative to the Early Town Records : Presented January 30, 1893 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Second Report of the Record Commissioners Relative to the Early Town Records: Presented January 30, 1893 The earliest effort in this direction was made Aug. 12, 1678, when Daniel Abbott was elected town clerk, to succeed John Whipple, Jr. At this time Roger Williams and Daniel Abbott were appointed a committee 'to take a list of what they received, and to give to ye sayd John Whipple a cleare and full discharge for the same.' This action was taken shortly after the Indian war [1675-76] when the town suffered so severely from its effects, and when the records passed through a severe ordeal.
