      Samuel “was brought to New England in 1632 by his parents, who settled in Cambridge, Mass, where he was graduated at Harvard college in 1643. On Sept. 24, 1650, he was ordained assistant to Rev. John Eliot of Roxbury, and continued in that office until his death, Nov. 19, 1674. Mr. Danforth was skilled in mathematics and astronomy, and published several almanacs; and also kept in the church records a ajournal of notable public events. He was particularly distinguished for the fervor of his piety and the purity of his life.” [1]
