SILAS DUNTON. Samuel Dunton (1), the
immigrant ancestor of Silas Dunton, of Millbury,
Massachusetts, was born in England or Scotland
about 1620. Family tradition says that he was
Scotch. He is the best known and most prominent

Edward and Elizabeth Dunton, perhaps relatives of
his, were in Salem and members of the church there
in 1039, but soon afterwards they removed, per-
haps back to England or the old country whence
they came, as no more is known of them. Robert
Dunton, the only other early settler of this name
in Massachusetts, was possibly father and probably
a brother of Samuel. Both of them settled in Read-
ing. Robert was a proprietor there in 1644 and a
prominent man, holding many town offices later, se-
lectman in 1647-48-49. Samuel Dunton was also a.
proprietor in 1044 at Reading, though reported

to sons Samuel, John and Nathaniel ; daughters
Hannah, Elizabeth, Sarah, Mary and Ruth ; grand-
son Samuel ; refers to land which Thomas had to
use; John was to maintain his father and mother
the remainder of their lives. His estate was settled
by his son John ; his accounts mention payments to
Hannah, Sarah, Nathaniel and Samuel Dunton.

(V11I) Silas Dunton, son of Moses Dunton
(7), was born in Millbury, Massachusetts, April
9, 1818. He received such educational advantages
as were given to a farmer's boy in his day. At the
age of fourteen he left the district school to be-
come an assistant in his father's shop. Two years
later he began his mercantile career as a clerk for
A. G. Stiles & Company, general merchants, 111 Mill-
bury, for whom he worked until the firm was dis-
solved. In 1839 he went to Louisville, Kentucky,
where he was a salesman for three years in the
boot and shoe store established in that city by
W 1 iod & Warren, of Upton, Massachusetts. After
returning home in 1842, he soon went south again
to dispose of a bankrupt stock of boots and shoes,
which he sold to dealers in Memphis, St. Louis and
Louisville. From 1844 to 1846 he was employed as
a salesman in a dry goods store in Worcester, Massa-
chu-etts, for Hardon & Hunt, successors to H. B.
Clarrlin, and during the ensuing year he was clerk
in a Boston clothing house for some six months,
when he returned to Millbury and clerked for a
woolen manufacturing company for a short time,
when he went to North Oxford and took charge of
a store for Benedict & Denney, cotton manufacturing
company. Leaving the cotton company in 1848, he
became the junior member of the firm of Robbins
& Dunton, of Millbury. This firm had a flourishing
business for three years, when Mr. Dunton bought
out his partner. In company with Mr. Denny, who
was an experienced pharmacist, added a drug store
to the general merchandise in which he had been
dealing, and continued for a number of years. Mr.
Denny withdrew after some years and went west.
Two years later Mr. Dunton took his son-in-law,
James A. Morse, into partnership.

Just after the close of the civil war, Mr. Dunton
sold his store and in company with others went to
Richmond, Virginia, to look at timber lands along
the York river. He concluded not to invest and
went to Canada, where he embarked in the oil-well
business. The experience was unprofitable and he
returned to Millbury, where he has since lived. He
bought back his old business and conducted it for
two years as the head of Dunton & Morse. In
1872 he went into partnership with Thomas A. Win-
ter under the firm name of Dunton & Winter, and
the business has continued under this name to the
present time. The firm has a large general store
and has been highly prosperous. Mr. Dunton is a
thirty-second degree Mason, a member of Olive
Branch Lodge of Millbury, of which he has been a
member since 1855. He is a Republican of the
stalwart sort and has voted with that party since
its organization. He cast his first vote in a presi-
dential campaign while he was at Louisville, and
helped to build the log cabin in which Henry Clay
afttrward spoke in the famous Log Cabin campaign
for Harrison and Tyler. He was a representative
to the general court from Millbury in 1868. He at-
tends the Unitarian church. He married, August
22, 1846, Olivia L. Guild, of Oxford, Massachusetts.
She was born in Augusta, Maine, daughter of Davis
and Olivia ( Lyon) Guild. She died July 25, 1884,

sachusetts, was born about 1640 and died February
8, 17-5 He was one of the early settlers of Mendon,
a man of wealth and standing. He was elected on
the board of selectmen January 3, 1680, and April
4. 1680, on the building committee of the church
"'to take care that the minister's house be done by
December 25." He and his three sons built the
bridge over Great River to their land on the west
Tiank in 1709, and in 1729 under an arrangement
with the town they built the second bridge also.
His house was on Fortfield, near Mendon Pond,
but he acquired large tracts of land by grant and
purchase until the Taft property nearly encompassed
the pond and comprised a tract some two and a half
miles square. Robert Taft also bought a tenth of
the tract that later was named Sutton, he being one
of a syndicate that made the purchase March 10,
1713. His descendants have been among the most
prominent citizens in that section of Worcester
county. The origin of the family and Robert Taft's
ancestry is treated elsewhere in this work. Chil-
dren of Robert and Sarah Taft: 1. Thomas, born
1671, mentioned below. 2. Robert, Jr., born 1674,
•died April 29, 1748. 3. Daniel, born 1677, died Au-
gust 24, 1761. 4. Joseph, born 1680, died June 18,
1747. 5. Benjamin, born 1684, died 1766.

(II) Thomas Taft, eldest child of Robert Taft
(1), was born in the old country, 1671, and died in
Mendon, 1755. He married Deborah, daughter of
Isaac Genery, of Dedham, Massachusetts, and they
■settled on the Taft place in Mendon, where he was
associated with his father and brothers. He died
intestate, and his sons Eleazer and Isaac were on
the administrator's bond dated June 16, 1757. Chil-
dren of Thomas and Deborah Taft: 1. Joseph, born
May 26, 1693. 2. Sarah, May 26, 1695. 3. Eleazer,
April 5, 1697. a captain ; his son Moses graduated
at Harvard 1751. 4. Hannah, April 17. 1699. 5. Re-
becca, May 15. 1701. 6. Deborah. November 14,

15, 1708. 9. Isaac. July 15. 1710. 10. Susanna, (twin)

(III) Thomas Taft, twin son and youngest child
■of Thomas Taft (2), was born March 15, 1713. He

Mendon. He mentions a cider mill in his will, in-
dicating that he carried on the cider business in
addition to farming. The Tafts had been in excellent

standing in the Puritan church until Thomas (3)
In^t faith in the minister. Rev. Mr. Willard. The
clergyman had suspended Taft from communion
"for repeatedly refusing to hear and casting contempt
•upon the church, particularly upon the pastor of
said church, till he should make manifest repent-
ence and reformation." Taft and his friends pre-
ferred charges, and although Willard was acquitted
of the things charged he was dismissed from his
-pastorate. And thus the trouble seems to have



ended. Thomas Taft made a will August 28, 1773,
twenty years before his death, and it was disallowed
by the probate court because Thomas deeded away
his real estate mentioned in the will so that the pro-
visions of the will could not be executed. . His
signature is notable. Although the writing is ex-
cellent and seems to indicate a familiarity with the
quill, the two "T's" in his name are both lower
case letters. The will left half the farm to Na-
thaniel, and the southern half to Thomas. He
mentioned also his daughters, Lydia Taft, wife of
Ebenezer Taft, and Hannah Penniman ; also grand-
son, Marvel Taft. He died early in 1793. He mar-
ried Lydia Thompson about 1732. Their children

worthy descendant of honorable ancestry, has taken
his part in public affairs, was formerly assessor and
collector of taxes, and was one of the organizers
of the local grange, Patrons of Husbandry, and one

ists" Moses Marcy was moderator, and the historian

cellent and venerable moderator." He died October
