Rev. Roland'^ Thacher was educated for the ministry and grad-
uated at Harvard College in 1733. He was the first pastor of the
Church and Society of Wareham, Mass., where he was ordained
in 1740, and remained pastor there for thirty-four (34) years, dying
greatly beloved and respected.

The following is an extract from an original letter written by
Col. John* Thacher in 1761 to his son, Rev. Roland'^ Thacher, from
which it seems clear that the latter's name was in reality Roland
Cotton^ Thacher, viz: —
"My dear son Cotton:

Through much weakness of body, I write these few lines to
you, which I would have you receive and improve as the last and
dying words of your aged father. A few moments after you were
born, I went into the room to see my new born babe with the
mother, and after giving thanks for her deliverance, I asked her
'what we should do for a name.' 'Oh!' said she, T have a name
ready, if you like it. Don't you know how often that good man, Mr.
Cotton, comes in to see us? I want the child named after him.'
To which I readily complied, and at the same time, I had sudden
thoughts of giving you to God, as devoted to the work of the
ministry. * * * "

Col. John* Thacher, father of Rev. Roland' Thacher, died in
1764, aged 90; hence he was 87 years old when he wrote the above



I9I2.]



Thacher-TIiatcher Gettealogy. 1 67



letter. The original was in the hands of Mrs. Elizabeth Thacher
(Benton) Bennett of Brooklyn, N. Y., who sent a copy of the same
to Hon. Peter Thacher of Newton, Mass., from which copy the
above extract was obtained.

From the Cemetery at Parker Mills Station, Wareham, Mass.,
we obtain the following graveyard inscriptions :

"Rev. Roland Thacher, Pastor of Church of Christ in Ware-
ham, died February i8th, 1775, in his 64th year."

"Abigail, virtuous consort of Rev. Roland, died October 31st,
1753 — 33rd year."

"Hannah, virtuous consort of Rev. Roland, died June 29th,

1774 — 50th year."
