Note: [ralphroberts.ged] [roberts.GED] [roberts.GED] [mjr6387.ged] !MISC: The births of the children of Daniel S. are of record in th e Dartmouth Register. This fact is not conclusive evidence that the y were all born in that town. The record was made after the birth o f his youngest child. The Colonial Records of Rhode Island evidence t hat he was a resident of Newport 1732. In May of that year he was qua lified as a "Freeman of the Colony of Rhode island and Providence Pla ntations."He removed to Petersham as early as 1748 and the followin g year he and David Sanderson were chosen Deacons of the Church. Mr . Spooner continued in his official relations to the church until th e close of his life. He held various official positions in the town ; an addition to the village was laid out by him. The old deacon - a s we must conclude from his long service - ruled to the satisfactio n and to the enlargement of his church, In his household he acted upo n the principle that "He that spareth his rod hateth his son; but h e that loveth him chasteneth him betimes." It is related by a great-g randson of his that "Daniel was a Carpenter and Joiner, and worked mu ch from home during the week and on his return home Saturday night, h e would call up his large family of boys and without any enquiry woul d give each of them a whipping, presuming that by their conduct throu gh the week they had deserved it."
