About Capt. Samuel Clapp
The town record of the Clapp family reads, "He was a wise and prudent man," says Mr. Blake, "partaking of the choice of spirit of his father, treading in his steps and making good his ground; he was eminent, treading for religion, and of a blameless and unspotted conversation. He was early and constantly employed in public affairs; was Captain of the military company, Representative for the town, and, the last seven years of his life, a Ruling Elder of the Church of Dorchester, where he lived."
