Note on Husband: Thomas AXTELL (1)

b. in Marlboro, Massachusetts, April 16, 1672, married Sarah Barker of

Concord, November 2, 1697, and lived in the east part of Marlboro until 1730

when he moved to Grafton, Massachusetts. He was a Selectman there in

1736-1737 and later a member of the School committee. He died December 18,

1750. His wife died June 26, 1747. The Marlboro records show that he had a

part in a controversy which shook the whole town. He, with about half of the

people, opposed the settlement of a certain minister. Later when in Grafton

he was a leader in church affairs, and afterwards carried on quite a

controversy with the minister and others. A tendency to do their own thinking

in religion and politics has always been a characteristic of the Axtells. A

tradition is handed down of a saying of this Thomas. Two of his sons took

opposite directions: one became a fervent supporter of the New Light

doctrines (as they were called); the other was adverse to religion. The

father is said to have remarked, "One of my sons is over much religious; the

other is over much wicked." In Marlboro, Thomas lived in the eastern part of

the town near what is known as the Warren school house. In Grafton, he

located first about a mile northeast of the Center, but in old age he sold

his farm and went to live with his son Thomas on the place now owned by his

descendants.
