' settlement,' that is a homestead or ' accommodations,' as in the
case of his predecessor ; in pursuance of which a house and its
appurtenances were purchased and presented to him by a deed of
gift, 'as the town's act and deed.'

"Mr. Wakeman became the sole pastor of this congregation at
the early age of about twenty-one years. He was a young man
of great promise, amiable, accomplished, and remarkably popular
in the pulpit. The attachment of the people to their young and



WAKEMAN GENEALOGY. 131

talented pastor appears to have been deep and tender. Under his
ministry the congregation became so much increased that addi-
tional accommodations were required for public worship, and the
town ordered a gallery to be built across the north end of the
meeting house. But the hopes of the people and the fair earthly
prospects of the young minister and his family were destined to
an early reverse. In the autumn of the year 1704 that fearful
malady, the dysentery, prevailing in a fatal form among the
people invaded his family. His little son Samuel, a child of two
years old, and an only one, died on the 29th of October ; and only
nine days later the father followed, leaving a childless widow and
a disappointed flock to shed tears over his early grave."

From the same, foot note to page no; tombstone

" Here lye the Remains of ye Revd. Mr. Jabez Wakeman, the
faithful pastor of ye Church of Christ in this place, who Departed

" Hoc sunt tumulo Wakeman venerabilis ossa.

" By him lies his son, Samuel, died Sept. 29, 1704. ^Etatis 2d."
