Reverend Ebenezer Parkman kept his daily diary for 65 years during his ministry at the Westborough, MA church. He graduated from Harvard in 1721. He married Mary Champney who died after their 4th child. He then married Hannah Breck and had 12 children. His son, Samuel, gifted to the church a bell that Paul Revere made. It has made it’s way to Boston’s Old South Meeting House.

PREFACE. 



In giving a part of Mr. Parkman's Journal to the public, the West- 
borough Historical Society feel that they are making a valuable con- 
tribution to local New England History. It is not only a vivid 
picture of their own town during the last century, but a type of all 
New England towns, — the petty cares and economies, the small 
jealousies and quarrels, and back of it all and broader than all, the 
earnest, honest, God-fearing lives of those only a few generations 
before us. 

We especially feel indebted to Mrs. Edward Tuckerman, of Am- 
herst, who lent us most willingly and kindly the manuscript 
Journal. Miss Eliza S. Parkman, of Boston, has given us help 
repeatedly in too many ways to be separatel}' enumerated. Miss 
Alice B. Gould, of Boston, lent the picture of Edmund Quincy — 
Mrs. George Sumner, of Worcester, those of Rev. Mr. Sumner, of 
Shrewsbury, and his house — Mr. Bradford Kingman, of Brookline, 
the two blocks taken from Barbour's Collections, Harvard College 
and Eli Whitney's house— Mr. Arthur B. Denny, of Chestnut Hill, 
made the copies of Madam Parkman and of the Parkman Coat-of. 
Arms — the latter from a water-color illumination which formerly 
adorned the walls of the Westborough parsonage. 

The extracts from the Natalitia are published through the 
courtesy of the American Antiquarian Society. 

The drawing of Mr. Parkman on the cover is the only picture of 
him known to be in existence. It was a niemor}- sketch, done with 
pen and ink. 

The photograph of the handsome old table which Elias brought 
up from Cambridge is taken from the original now owned by Mr. 
Parkman T. Denny, of Leicester, and coveted by all of the old min- 
ister's descendants. The slate top has beeu replaced by a board. 



IV PREFACE. 

but the handsome carving and Ijeautiful wood might well excite 
the enthusiasm of a greater connoisseur in antique furniture than 
Klias Parkman. 

The Journal has been carefully copied, but for the sake of clear- 
ness most of the abbreviations have been written out. Mr. Park- 
man usually wrote they, yy — them, y'" — their, yeir^ and abbre- 
viated many other common words. The italicized words have 
been retained, except in the case of proper names — which he 
always underscores. In a very few cases where the words were 
illegible or blotted, an interrogation mark indicates the uncertainty. 

The notes have been written mostly from town records or au- 
thentic history, tradition very rarely being allowed a voice.

INTRODUCTION. 



The following pages are part of the Jourual of Rev. Ebene/.er 
Park man. It is probable that he kept it for the whole period of 
his long pastorate iu Westborough. Much of it has been lost— that 
for many years burned,— a few volumes are in the Library of the 
Antiquarian Society in Worcester,— one at least in that of the Mas- 
sachusetts Historical Society of Boston. This volume, w^iich the 
Westborough Historical Society is enabled to print through the 
kindness of Mrs. Edward Tuckerman, of Amherst, is owned l)y 
her. It is all in one book, sewed together probably long after Rev. 
Ebenezer's death. Mrs. Tuckerman writes : "The book came to 
me directly from my aunt, Mrs. Asa Rand, an older sister of my 
father's who received it from her mother Sarah, daughter of Rev. 
Ebene/.er. My good old aunt had more of her grandfather's diary, 
but in some of her movings (she was a minister's wife), it got left 
behind in a box of papers, on a closet shelf, she told me, and she 
could not recover it, probably destroyed as waste paper." 

Ebenezer Parkman was born in Boston, Sept. 5, 1703. His father 
was Wm. Parkman, who in 1680 married Elizabeth Adams, also of 
Boston. She is buried on Copp's Hill— dying on the 13th of April, 
1746. Wm. Parkman had died sixteen years earlier, Nov. 30, 1730. 
He was born in Salem, where his father Elias had settled, iu 1658. 
This Elias, born in 1635, was also the sou of Elias Parkman, who 
had come among the earliest settlers to New England, and grand- 
son of Thomas Parkman, of Sidmouth, Devon, England. 

Ebeuezer Parkman was admitted to Harvard College in 1717, 
when he was fourteen years old, and graduated in 1721. The 
next year he taught school in Newton, living with the brother Elias, 
whom he mentions in the first part of the Journal. This brother 



VI INTRODUCTION. 

was a mastmaker, and in 1728 an advertisement appears in a local 
paper : — 

"April I. Mr. Henrj' Richards wants to sell a parcel of likely negro boys 
and one negro girl, arrived from Nevis, and were brought from Guinea. To be 
seen at the house of Mr. Elias Parkman, mastmaker, at the North End." 

As the Rev. Ebenezer purchased a slave boy, Maro, in August of 
that year, it is very possible that he vi^as one of this "parcel." 
Maro lived only a little more than a year at the Westborough par- 
sonage, and Mr. Parkman writes under date of Dec. 6, 1728 : " Dark 
as it has been with us, it became much Darker abt ye Sun Setting. 
The .Sun of Maro's life Sat. The first Death in my Family! God, 
enable me to see thy Sovereign mind and comport with his holy 
Will." 

This brother Elias and his wife are both buried on Copp's Hill, 
dying in 1741 and 1746. 

Mr. Parkman's son Elias was undoubtedly named for this favorite 
brother, and indeed most of his children bore the names of his 
brothers and sisters— Mary, Elizabeth, William, Sarah, Susannah, 
.lle.xander, Samuel, John, and Elias being names common to each. 

In 1723, Mr. Parkman commenced to preach, and twice during 
that summer occupied the Westborough pulpit. In 1724, he and 
the Rev. Jacob Eliot, of Boston, were nominated in a Town Meeting 
as candidates for the position of Town Minister in Westborough, 
and he, proving the successful candidate, was installed nine months 
later, over the little church organized just before. 

Those nine months had been very busy ones to the young man. 
Only a month had passed since he had become twenty-one years of 
age. He had built himself a house on the bleak hill-top where the 
Lyman School now stands, and he had married a wife in July — Mary 
Champney, of Cambridge. 

The Church was organized in this new house of INIr. I'arktiian's — 
with twelve members besides the pastor. They were : Thomas For- 
bush, John Pratt, Edmund Rice, Isaac Tomlin, John Fay, David 
Maynard, Thomas Newton, James Bradish, David Brigham, Joseph 
Wheeler, James Ball and Isaac Tomlin, Jr. It was five years before 
the little church near the parsonage was finished. 



INTRODUCTION. 



Vll 



" In the year 1729" — so says the Book of Church Records, "A 
Flaggon was sent the Church from a Friend of its Welfare at Boston. 
See Zechariah 6, 14, latter part. 

"In the year 1735, 10 sh. was given ye Church towards a Baptism 
Bason, afterwards another 10 sh. was given by the same person, who 
also Vjought ye Bason Dec, 1739, and devoted it to ye Qhh's use. 
N. B. A Frame for ye Bason with its shaft and vScrews, etc., price 
20s., was given and Devoted by ye Same." 

The flagon and basin have been guarded from the destruction 
which has overtaken nearly everything else connected with the 
little church on the hill, and have found their way through the kind- 
ness of Mr. John A. Fayerweather, into the collection of the His- 
torical Society. They are both of pewter, and bring before our 
eyes more vividly than any words could do, the simplicity and 
poverty and sincerity of these first members of the Westborough 
Church.

We know of uo later volume of the Journal. 

The last entry in any book that we have was written by Mr. Park- 
man under the date of Sept. 5, O. S. 1782 in the Natalitia — 

" I have still fresh Cause to praise and extol ye name of ye most 
High who endures me and permits me to live in His World, to en- 
joy innumerable Advantages and especially to enjoy both ye Day 

1 These last sermons on this last day of the year were preached 
from the texts : — 

" For I am a great King, saith the Lord of Hosts, and my name 
is dreadful among the heathen " — and in the afternoon — 

"Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter; I'ear God 
and keep his commandments; for this is the whole duty of man."

That my Senses have been continued in such a Measure : and 
particularly That my Light has not been utterly taken away-but 
that I can in such a Measure both read & write ; that especially

As he turned the page he found he had written some items on the 
other side-there was no more room in the book. He commenced 
on its first page in 1727-he had now-an old man-reached the 

last. , 

He lived but a short time after this birthday, dying on the 9th of 

December. 

An article in the Worcester Spy reads :— 

" Westborough Dec. 16. 1782. 

" On Monday evening the 9th inst. departed this Life that aged 
and venerable man of God, the Reverend Ebenezer Parkman, pas- 
tor of the Church of Christ in this place, in the 8oth year of his age 
and the 59th of his ministry, and this day his remains were decently 
and honorably interred. He was a gentleman and a scholar, a 
good divine and real christian. He was a lover of religion and of 
learning: a lover of the college in Cambridge (where he had his 
education) and an honour to it ; a lover of good men & given to 
hospitality. He loved his brethren in the ministry, & was an orna- 
ment to the order. He was a friend to his country, and to these 
churches and a firm supporter of their order & constitution, & op- 
posed all attempts to subvert the same. By nature, education & 
grace, he had much done for him to furnish him for the various 
services of the pastoral office ; and he was diligent & eminently 
faithful in improving all his gifts for the glory of God & the good 
of his people. He had a singular talent in private conversation ;

his communications were always edifying & ministered grace to 
the hearers. 

" He took heed to himself and unto his doctrine and continued 
therein to the very last ; and we believe (through grace) has saved 
himself and many who heard him. Having obtained help of God, 
he continued his ministerial labor for more than thirty of the last 
years of his life, without any intermission, through bodily infirmi- 
ties, until Six Sabbaths before his death. 

" His widow and children with a beloved flock, and an extensive 
acquaintance mourn his departure; But sorrow not as they who 
have no hope, for they believe he has gone to rest : which rest re- 
maining for the people of God was the subject of his last discourse 
to his people. The great head of the church has said. Be thou 
faithful unto death and I will give thee a crown of glory." 




THE P.\RKMAN GRAVES. 



DIARY OF REV. EBENEZER PARKMAN. 297 

Mr. Parkman's grave — the only oue in Memorial Cemetery with 
"a horizontal slab, has been protected in recent years by an iron 
fence. For many years it was used by the boys of Westborough as 
a convenient table for their games, or for a seat in the rare moments 
when they sat. The Inscription reads ; — 

" Here lies deposited 
the mortal part of that mau of God 
the Revd Ebenezer Parkmau A. M. 

who was born Sepi". 5. 170.^ ; 
ordained the first Bishop of the Church 
in Westborough, October 28th 1724; 
and died on the ninth of December 17S2 
having completed the 79th year of his age 
on Septr. 161I1 & the 58 year of his ministry 
on November 8th preceding. 

He was formed by nature and education to 

be an able minister of the New Testament, 

and obtained grace to be eminently faithful 

in the work of the Lord : 

He was a firm friend to the faith, order and 

Constitution of the New England Churches. 

He was a learned pious good man 

full of the Holy Ghost, & faith unfeigned ;— 

and answered St. Paul's description 

of a Scripture Bishop, being "blameless 

Vigilant, 'Sober, of good behaviour, 

given to hospitality, Apt to teach." 

Be thou faithful unto death. 
And I will give thee a Crown of life 
Says Christ.

Nonfiction for kids interested in science, biography, and early entrepreneurs, this work explores the life story of Clarence Birdseye, the man who revolutionized the frozen food industry and changed the way people eat all over the world. Adapted from Mark Kurlansky’s adult work Birdseye: The Adventures of a Curious Man.

Adventurer and inventor Clarence Birdseye had a fascination with food preservation that led him to develop and patent the Birdseye freezing process and start the company that still bears his name today. His limitless curiosity spurred his other inventions, including the electric sunlamp, an improved incandescent lightbulb, and a harpoon gun to tag finback whales. This true story of an early inventor/entrepreneur is not only thrilling but also explains the science and early technology behind food preservation.Simultaneously available in a hardcover and trade paperback edition.

Following lock step in Goebels Nazi black boots of censorship and banning media and burning books we find ourselves in identical history by NWO design repeating itself on American soil this time with Main Stream Media & Internet outlets barring & banning Alex Jones & http://www.Infowars.com and replaced Alex’s uncensored truths with government sponsored disinformation like the NYT piece below.

Google has censored, scrubbed, deleted and ultimately removed from the internet my personal YouTube and Google+ website pages.

SAN FRANCISCO — After Silicon Valley internet giants mostly barred Alex Jones from their services last month, traffic to his Infowars website and app soared on the blaze of publicity — and the notorious conspiracy theorist declared victory.

“The more I’m persecuted, the stronger I get,” Mr. Jones said on his live internet broadcast three days later. “It backfired.”

Yet a review of traffic on Infowars several weeks after the bans shows that the tech companies drastically reduced Mr. Jones’s reach by cutting off his primary distribution channels: YouTube and Facebook.

In the three weeks before the Aug. 6 bans, Infowars had a daily average of nearly 1.4 million visits to its website and views of videos posted by its main YouTube and Facebook pages, according to a New York Times analysis of data from the web data firms Tubular Labs and SimilarWeb. In the three weeks afterward, its audience fell by roughly half, to about 715,000 site visits and video views, according to the analysis.

The analysis did not include traffic to the two-month-old Infowars app or views of videos that Mr. Jones posted on Twitter, where his accounts remain active. He also still shares posts inside private Facebook groups, and his followers repost his content from their social-media accounts. But data suggest that those sources of traffic are smaller than Mr. Jones’s main Facebook and YouTube pages.

That Facebook and Google, which owns YouTube, muffled one of the internet’s loudest voices so quickly illustrates the tremendous influence a few internet companies have over public discourse and the spread of information.

The fate of Infowars is likely to be a point of debate in congressional hearings on Wednesday with tech executives including Twitter’s chief executive, Jack Dorsey, and Facebook’s chief operating officer, Sheryl Sandberg. Part of the focus will be on claims by President Trump and other critics that Silicon Valley is silencing conservative voices.

The case of Mr. Jones and Infowars is tricky for many politicians and figures on the right. While many dislike the idea of tech companies censoring political speech, and Infowars leans far right, Mr. Jones regularly spreads lies, conspiracy theories and inflammatory attacks against political enemies. (On Thursday, a Texas judge denied his motion to dismiss a defamation lawsuit by parents of children killed six years ago in the Sandy Hook school shooting, which he has falsely called a hoax.)

Senator Ted Cruz, Republican of Texas, tweeted in August, “Am no fan of Jones — among other things he has a habit of repeatedly slandering my Dad by falsely and absurdly accusing him of killing JFK — but who the hell made Facebook the arbiter of political speech?”

Now that access to Infowars is mainly through its website or app, Mr. Jones’s ability to reach new viewers is severely limited because they will no longer come across his videos while scrolling through Facebook or YouTube, said Monica Stephens, a geography professor at the University at Buffalo who has studied the spread of misinformation online.

“This increases the likelihood Infowars is preaching to a filter bubble versus reaching new audiences,” she said.

Another right-wing provocateur might present a cautionary tale for Mr. Jones: Milo Yiannopoulos, the former Breitbart editor. Mr. Yiannopoulos gained notoriety during the 2016 presidential race for his abusive language, and Twitter barred him that year for harassing the comedian Leslie Jones. He also lost his job at Breitbart after making glib remarks about pedophilia, and his public profile gradually faded.

Last month, Mr. Yiannopoulos lashed out at critics on Facebook, saying, “I have lost everything standing up for the truth in America, spent all my savings, destroyed all my friendships, and ruined my whole life.”

In an email, he wrote, “Social justice warriors machinate to get speakers canceled, and social networks purge conservatives, for the same reason: no-platforming works.”

Neither Mr. Jones nor Infowars responded to requests for comment.

Mr. Jones has long relied on Silicon Valley to distribute his message. His YouTube channel amassed 2.4 million subscribers and more than 1.6 billion views of nearly 36,000 videos it had posted since 2008, according to Social Blade, which tracks social media data. His success was due partly to YouTube’s video-recommendation algorithm, which, in an effort to drive clicks, pushed many users to Mr. Jones’s clips.

The main Facebook pages for Mr. Jones and Infowars, meanwhile, had drawn 668 million views of their videos over the past three years, according to Tubular Labs.

But on Aug. 6, Facebook deleted four pages run by Mr. Jones or Infowars for breaking its rules, including by “glorifying violence” and “using dehumanizing language to describe people who are transgender, Muslims and immigrants.”

YouTube erased Mr. Jones’s channel for flouting a penalty for a previous punishment for hate speech. YouTube also quietly deleted more than a dozen other channels associated with Infowars for trying to circumvent its rules.

Since then, Mr. Jones has made the companies a central theme of his near-daily show. In recent shows broadcast on his website, he has falsely accused YouTube and Facebook of being controlled by the Chinese government and assisting in an elaborate global conspiracy to control the world’s population.

“It is a panopticonic, total internet-of-things-integration, global-social-score, complete command-and-control system,” Mr. Jones said three days after the ban. “It is the virtual-reality, A.I. weapon system now attacking the United States with traitors inside the major security agencies blocking Trump’s resistance of the program.”

He added, “I have been chosen for destruction because I brought you this information.”

Mr. Jones also directly appealed to Mr. Trump, asking him to intervene. (Mr. Trump appeared on Mr. Jones’s show during the 2016 presidential campaign, telling him: “Your reputation is amazing. I will not let you down.”)

Eleven days after Mr. Jones began calling on Mr. Trump to weigh in, the president tweeted: “Social Media is totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices. Speaking loudly and clearly for the Trump Administration, we won’t let that happen.”

Mr. Trump has since accelerated his criticism of Silicon Valley and how it surfaces information, alleging that Google doctored search results for his name. Google has denied the claim.

For a brief period after the bans, Mr. Jones enjoyed a bump in publicity. Traffic to Infowars.com soared 67 percent to about 777,000 visits a day in the two weeks after the ban, compared with the previous two weeks, SimilarWeb said. Downloads of the Infowars app surged sixfold to 25,500 downloads a day over the same period, according to Apptopia, which tracks app data.

But both figures have since fallen to nearly pre-ban levels. And the spike could not replace the lost traffic from the top three Facebook and YouTube channels for Infowars, which together averaged roughly 900,000 video views a day in the three weeks before the ban, according to Tubular Labs.

Other outlets have not helped much. Even as Mr. Jones’s account has remained on Twitter, his videos there attract 21,000 views on average, compared with 44,500 views per YouTube video, according to NeoReach, which helps brands market on social media. The Infowars accounts on other sites, such as Dailymotion, Amazon’s Twitch and BitChute, a video site mostly for people barred from YouTube, garner views in the hundreds for videos — and often fewer.

NeoReach said an analysis of Mr. Jones’s followers on social media showed that most were white married men, with an average age of 28 and average annual income of $46,500. NeoReach said his Twitter account “has a notable audience concentration in New York.”

Despite Mr. Jones’s early pronouncements that the bans would make his Infowars operation stronger, there are signs he is concerned.

On one recent show, he ranted without evidence that Silicon Valley companies gave liberals like the billionaire George Soros access to their users’ personal data, including “your film roll, what you did with your wife, your kids, you know, in the bathtub, Grandma.”

“It’s all theirs,” he shouted. “And everybody’s lining up to kiss these monsters’ disgusting satanic souls.”

Seconds later, the show went to a break, cutting to a recorded promotion in which Mr. Jones urged his followers to share Infowars’ videos on social media and to sign up for its newsletter “so there’s no way the censors can get between us.”

Jack Reacher – Never Go Back

September 15, 2018

Identical to actual events during the Vietnam War, namely the US Military smuggling Asian cocaine into the US via the coffins carrying dead American Soldiers. In this movie a military contractor Para Source, very similar to the actual Black Ops Mercenaries – Palantir , smuggles heroine in empty RPGs grenade rocket launchers made from the very same opium fields they protect.
