    "In 1710 the inhabitants residing at the west parish petitioned the town for land in their pr ecinct upon which to erect a meeting house. As has been shown they were obliged to travel fro m three to five miles via the ferry to attend religious services. In March, 1716, they petiti oned to be set off as the second parish and in June of the same year they were incorporated a s such by the General Court. They erected a meeting house in a commanding spot and November 2 8, 1716, Rev. Samuel Tompson, of Newbury, a graduate of Harvard in 1710, was settled as thei r pastor. He married Hannah Norwood by whom he had several children and died December 8, 1724 , aged 83. He was laid to rest in the old burial place of the parish and his tomb stone is st ill standing." [Pringle, James R., "History of the Town and City of Gloucester, Massachusetts ," (Published by the author, MA, 1892), p. 56]

    Note: The genealogy taken from other sources has this Samuel born in 1691. If his age in 172 4 was 83, then he was born in 1640/1, a problem with the date. Also he would have been quit e old to have sired 6 children before his death. The age may apply to his wife who died in 17 69, placing her birth in 1685/6.
