" Seth Winslow" on the same map, where he d. 18 Aug. 1793, aged, accord-
ing to the church record, 84 years, 4 months, and 16 days. He was not only
one of the earliest but also one of the most active and energetic of the pioneers
in Hardwick. He was a joiner, or housewright, a captain of .militia, select-
man, assessor, clerk and treasurer of the town, and a deacon of the church
nearly fifty-seven years. After his death, a pamphlet was published contain-
ing several articles written by him, chiefly on religious subjects. In one of
these is a scrap of autobiography which fixes the date of his birth and, in
connection with the records heretofore quoted, sufficiently identities him as
one of the sons of Joseph (3) : —

"My native place where born was I,
In seventeen hundred nine,
Does sixteen miles from Boston lie,
In Westown, called mine.

" Between my third year and my fourth
My mother left this life ;
Which was to me affliction sore.
My father lost his wife.

" In all my father's family
Once sixteen did survive;
Before my father two did die.
Then fourteen left alive."
