Sometimes when the soldiers were leaving for the seat of war, services were held by the resident minister. Thus, on the 23rd of June 1755, Rev. Mr. Gardner preached at the desire of Capt. William Pierce, being the day he began his march with his company for Albany, in the expedition against Crown Point. Samuel Preston was a captain in the army in 1756. In Capt. Pierce's company, Michael Law was sergeant, John Law was corporal, Jonathan Farr was drummer, Nathan Whitney; Solomon Taylor, Josiah Wetherbee Jonathan Pierce of Stow, were privates. Ephraim Powers was sergeant in Capt. Preston's company, and Ezekiel Davis in another company. May 22, 1758, Ensign Jabez Brown and others of Stow, whose names are not known, started to join the army destined for Canada. In April, 1760; others started for Crown Point.
