John Hunting - 1091
In the summer of 1638, John Hunting, his wife Hester and five children arrived in Mass. Bay Colony and immediately removed to Dedham. Hunting soon involved himself in the organization of the Church of that town as we see in the following extract of those churches earliest years written by the first Minister John Allin:
Toward the end of the summer (1638) we are having some experience of John Hunting who came to us from England and some of us knowing him before and having very good testimony of him from many others, we agreed to make trial whether he might not be found meet for this work and willing thereto; in both we found encouragement that he also came amongst us into society.
Thus Hunting joined with other men found sufficiently worthy to be pillars of the Dedham Church.
