      . Page 99: "He was active in town affairs. The town records show thatduring the years 1815-1827 he served as clerk, assessor, treasurer,overseer of poor, surveyor of highways, and on the school committee ofSaugus, Mass."

      ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
      His death in 1844 at age 57 would indicate that the Lynn, MA VR isincorrect. The above cited Mansfield Genealogy book was correct onpage 99, not on page 64. Also, his fellow siblings were too tightlyspaced in birth date to allow for him to be born in 1789.

      ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
      His death record lists him as a shoe manufacturer. He died ofconsumption at age 57.
