Edward Clap, Mr. Peletiah Glover and Thomas Tileston were chosen as messengers from the church to attend the ordination—a journey of nearly as much importance as would now be one to New Orleans, and much more dangerous. Several persons removed from this town to Northampton, and formed the church there; among them, William Clarke and Sarah his wife, Henry Woodward and Elizabeth his wife, and Henry Cunliffe and his wife Susanna."
