1747 July 13 (Monday). In the Morning I rode over to Mr. Dunlop to get him to come and reap. Found him at Lieutenant Tainters. Our Girls Bekky Hicks and my Lucy pull’d Flax. Mary Bradish came and pull’d another Piece of Flax. Old Mr. Axtell from Grafton here. He tells me Mr. Loring is gone along, fearing the Storm which threatens. He says Mr. Prentice sat in the Pulpit — divers at meeting in the forenoon that were not in the afternoon. N.B. Jonas Brigham here on the Affair of his joining to the Church.
Rebecca was the daughter of Parkman’s brother-in-law, John Hicks of Sutton.
The son of David Brigham of Westborough.
