Paul Thurston lived in Ward, Mass., and

ceased from Milton to Harvard. 'In 1795 or 1796
he lived on Deer Island, Maine.

of Ware, Mass., May 9th, 1751, and was dismissed of his charge
there June 19th, 1754; he took his dismission from Yarmouth
Church in 1760, "in consequence" — as Mr. Alden said — "of general
dissatisfaction between him and the people, being allowed by a
council to ask for a dissolution of connexion." He is represented
as having been a man of strong mind but very eccentric.

Rev. PeterM, born Yarmouth, February 17th, 1733; died — ^,

at . From Vol. XV, p. 507, of Mass. Soldiers and Sailors

in Rev' War I obtain the following record of an Ebenezer
Thatcher, which it is highly probable is the record of this
Ebenezer^ Thacher, viz: —
"Thatcher Ebenezer, Yarmouth, Private, Captain Joshua
Gray's Co., enlisted July loth, 1775; discharged December 31st,
177=; service in defence of sea coast; rolls sworn to in Barnstable
Co; also, return of men raised to serve in the Continenta Army
from Colonel Nathaniel Freeman's (ist Barnstable County) Regi-
ment residence Yarmouth, enlisted for town of Yarmouth; joined
Captain Lamont's Co., Col. Bradford's regiment, enlistment 3 years;
also list of men mustered by Joseph Otis, Muster Master for Barn,
stable Co., dated April 14th, i777, Capt. James Davis Co., Col.
Gamaliel Bradford's regiment; mustered April 14, I777; enlist-
ment 7, years; reputed received State and Contmental Bounties;
also Sergeant 5th Co. Col. Bradford's Regt., Contmental pay ac^
counts for service from April 14, I777. to December 31^ 17791 ajso.
Captain John Lamont's Co. Col. Bradford's (12th) Reg -return
(year not given) ; mustered by County and Contmental Muster
Masters; joined May ist, i777; also Captam Haskell s Co., Col.
Bradford's Regiment, Continental Army, pay accounts for service
January ist, 1780, to April 14, 1780 (see Obed Ilaebe) ; alsoC^p-
iain Micah Hamlen's Co., Lieut. Col. Hallet's Regt entered ser-
vice August 14th, 1780, 3 days preceding march ; discharged Oc-
tober ^ist, 1780; service 2 months, 21 days at Rhode Island ; regi-
ment detached from Militia to reinforce Continental Army for 3
months." This record is apparently that of the Ebenezer^ Thacher
No m8- and that it is so is rendered still more probable as a com-
parison of this record with that of Joseph^ Thacher (his brother
No 160), it is seen that this Ebenezer Thatcher and Joseph
Thacher both served in the same Company and Regiment (La-
mont's Co. and Bradford's Regt.) and both were from Yarmouth.
The subsequent career of Ebenezer^ Thacher I have beeri unable to
trace; whether he married and left issue, or whether he died single,

is unknown to me.

1782; died , 1800, about, "on the Coast of

Guinea, after niggers." For further informa-
tion concerning this child, see Yarmouth Records.
He was not married.
From Mass. Soldiers and Sailors in War of Rev., Vol. XV,
p. 508, we obtain the following record of the Military Service of
Joseph^ Thacher, viz: —

"Thatcher, Joseph, Yarmouth— Return of men raised to serve
in Continental Army from Col. Nathaniel Freeman's (ist Barri-
stable County) regiment, dated Sandwich, June 10, i777; resi-
dence Yarmouth; enlisted for town of Yarmouth; joined Capt.
Lamont's Co., Col. Bradford's regt., enlistment 3 years; also pri-
vate 5th Co., Col. Bradford's Regt.; Continental Army pay ac-
counts for service from May 16, 1777, to October i6th, 1778;
residence Yarmouth; credited to town of Yarmouth; reputed de-
ceased ; also Captain John Lamont's Co., Col. Gamaliel Bradford s
(i2th) regiment; subsistence allowed from date of enlistment,
May 12, 1777, to May 27, 1777; credited with 15 days' allowance;
also, same Co. and Regt.; return (year not given) ; mustered by
County and Continental Muster Masters; joined June 26th, 1777;
reported sick at Kings Ferry."

From an analysis of above record it would seem that the date
of his death was either on or subsequent to October i6th, 1778, as
he was allowed pay up to that date.
