Town Clerks

The first two clerks held the office till they left town. Dalton, Henry Dow and his son and grandson, the Deacons Samuel, died in office. The later Dows, Joseph, Josiah and Josiah Jr., were son, grandson and great-grandson of the second Deacon Samuel; so that the office of Town Clerk was held in direct descent in that family 134 years.

Town Treasurers

The office of Treasurer was created in 1747. From 1755 to 1791 the town money was probably again in the hands of the selectmen. Article three, in the warrant for a town meeting, August 8, 1791, was: "To see if the town will be of the mind to choose a Town Treasurer, which is thought to be necessary, especially on account of the public securities belonging to said town." In 1841 it was voted that the office of the Town Treasurer be dispensed with; the present Treasurer to pay over to the Selectmen all notes or property now in his hands, for which is is accountable to the town. This arrangement continued till 1879.
