1742 August 5 (Thursday). At the Funeral of Mr. Joslins eldest son Joseph, the last Surviving Son. A very heavy (yet holy) Stroke of Divine Providence. This is the Fourth in this Family in about a fortnight. It is very awfull and awakening! P.M. I preached at Mr. Grouts on Micah 7.7.
Joseph Joslin, son of Joseph and Catharine, d. Aug. 4, 1742; WVR, 245.
Joseph Grout (1683-1759) and his wife Mary were dismissed from the church in Waltham and admitted to the Westborough church, Apr. 13, 1755 (WCR, 101).
