1738 September 28 (Thursday). Rainy Still. Old Mr. Maynard came and requested me to go over to his son in laws, Nathaniel Oakes to see their Young Child. P.M. It held up. I went over with him. The Child was thought to be in great Danger of Death. They requested that I would baptize it. They sent about to the Neighbours to come in. There came upward of 20 persons, and I baptiz’d it by the name of Ebenezer. After that Exercise I rode up to Lieutenant Holloways, visited Silas and Timothy Fay, and call’d at Captain Eagers at Evening.
Nathaniel Oak married Keziah Maynard, June 7, 1736.
William Holloway of Westborough.
