220.127.116.11. Isaac Huntington, born February 5, 1688, and married February 21, 1715-16, Rebecca, great-grand-daughter of Rev. John Lathrop, of England, and later of Scituate and Barnstable, Mass. He was early brought into the public service, in which he continued all his life. He was a professed Christian, having entered the church in 1731, on whose records liis name often occurs, in relations which show he was regarded as a sound and safe ecclesiastical counselor. He was appointed, October 21, 1746, on a committee, with Simon Tracy, his cousin Daniel, and Philip Turner, to "labor for the conviction and recovering of the Separates." These were the irregular and heterodox members of the church to which he belonged. He was, as successor to his father, chosen town clerk, December 6, 1726, yet had performed the duties of the office, from an apparently unknown date, commencing his services during the official period of his father, and with the aid of his son Benjamin, continuing them down to his own death, the last entry, by his hand, being on the 9th day of January, 1764, but a little more than a month previous to his death. This record was "examined" and attested by his son. He died, in the homestead built by his father, on soil taken from the Indians, February 23 1764, transmitting both his home and his office to his youngest son. His widow died April 27, 1774.
