    Notes:

    He was for a while a wharfinger (owner or keeper of a wharf) in Boston. In Dorchester he was constable in 1725, and, chosen to the same office in 1727, paid the fine for non-acceptance. Selectman 1728-32. Deputy to the general court, 1729-33 and 1737.

    Around 1745 or 1746, he was excommunicated from the church at Dorchester for "intemperate drinking," and felt himself to have been dealt with unjustly. He was subsequently one of the leaders of a rebellion against the local pastor, the Rev. Jonathan Bowman, but the Council of Churches upheld Bowman and instructed Bird and his associates to humble themselves and return to the church. Whether Bird ever did so is unclear. His son Samuel, who had left Harvard under a cloud "in consequence of some rash censures upon several of the Governors of the College, and the venerable clergymen of Cambridge," became a Methodist minister, and for a time preached to his father's group.

    Notes:

    "Samuel Palmer was born August 8, 1707, in Middleboro, MA, the fourth of nine children born to Thomas and Elizabeth Stevens Palmer. Although Thomas Palmer was not a college graduate, he was ordained as the minister of the First Church in Middleboro on May 2, 1702. As was the practice at that time, he was also the town physician, perhaps ministering to the physical needs of his parishioners through scripture and prayer. When Samuel was just a year old, his father was discharged by the church on June 30, 1708, for 'scandalous immorality and intemperance.' He was dismissed 'by the advice of an ecclesiastical council of twelve Churches, which deposed him from the ministry, and laid him under Church censure. And some time previous to that, he had been dismissed by his Church and Congregation, and preached in a private home to a party of his adherents.' In disgrace, Thomas Palmer most likely supported his family by practicing medicine among those "adherents" who stood by him. To his credit, however, Thomas was able to vindicate the family name by sending two of his sons to Harvard College, Samuel and his youngest sibling Job. It is unfortunate that Job died at twenty-five in 1745, five years after the death of his mother in 1740 and two years after the death of his father in 1743. All three are buried in the Middleboro Green Cemetery next to the First Congregational Church."
