[NOTE], June 4, 1725; m. in Natick 1747 [NOTE] Lydia MASON, of Natick. Deacon Micah was born in Framingham. He was in the French and Indian war and his name is found on Morris roll of BUCKMINSTER's regiment in 1755. He was one of the prominent citizens, was member of the church and deacon for many years, and one of the selectmen. Morse, in his History of Sherborn, says that he died June 23, 1860. This is, of course, impossible. And if we correct it to 1760, we find that we have the date of Mark WHITNEY's death, whose will Micah witnessed only six days earlier. The chances are against this, also, so I conclude that Morse, ignorant of Mark's existence, jumped at the conclusion that the Natick records had been written "Mark" when they should have been written "Micah." I have been of the opinion that Micah, and Thomas (Mark's son) with their families, moved away about 1760. Both men disappeared from Natick and vicinity about that time. I think Micah moved to Douglass, for he served in the Revolutionary war from that town; res. Natick and Douglass, Mass. 1311. i. MARY, b. Sept. 11, 1748. 1312. ii. AMOS, b.

Sherborn, Mass. 1316. i. JAMES, b. in 1755 [NOTE]; m. Susannah HILL. 1317. ii. JOSEPH, b. in 1762 [NOTE]; m. Sally PARKS.
