About John S. Spooner


   Finding, as early as Oct. 16, 1669, that John Spooner was one of a jury appointed by the Court of Assistants "to lay out an highway, vizt., a county road from Middleboro, Bridgewater, and other places toward Boston," - establishes the fact, that at that date he was a man of consideration, and esteemed by the Court as of sound judgment, - such services were then only confided to men of known worth and intelligence, and usually of mature years.
   He further served the Colony as Grand Juror, in 1702; and, his townsmen as Surveyor of Highways, 1686, 1699 and 1700, and was a member of the Town Council 1690. It is recorded that John Spooner was elected, May 18th, 1710, to represent Dartmouth in the General Court, - but on reference to the published list of officers as compiled by Mr. Whittemore, it is not seen that he took his seat as Representative.
