1749 May 29 (Monday). My Kinsman Nathaniel (on Mr. James Bowman’s Horse) Set out with me for Boston. We din’d at Mr. Farrars in Framingham after a turn of Fishing in his River — lodg’d at Captain Tainters at Watertown — my Kinsman being much worn with the Journey thus far.
Major John Farrar, the proprietor of a grist mill, held several town offices and in 1774 was named to Framingham’s committee of correspondence. Temple, Framingham, pp. 544-545.
