(A photograph from the original, now in the possession of Hon. John Cotton Smith, of Sharon.) He was Chaplain in the Revolutionary army, and for a long time with the troops at Ticonderoga, and was present at the taking of the fort. He is spoken of in history, on that day, as "praying like a saint, and fighting like a devil." He was settled over his congregation, in Sharon, for fifty-two years. [P. 8.]
