Timothy Dwight came to this country with his parents 1634/5 and was made a freeman 1655. He was for 10 years town clerk, selectman for 25 yrs., representative to the General Court 1691-2. He is thus described in the church records: "Timothy Dwight, Esq., a gentleman truly serious and godly, one of an excellent spirit, peaceable, generous, charitable, and a great promoter of the true interests of the church and town, deceased Jan. 31, 1717 in the 88th year of his age." Rev. Samuel Dexter, Pastor of the First Church in Dedham for 30 years (1724 - 1755), says, in "A Century Discourse", preached Nov. 23, 1738: "I shall only add that beside those in the ministry, this church and town have been favored with very valuable and worthy men in the magistracy, and others in a more private shere. A Lusher, a Fisher and a Dwight have been among our men of renown." He was a cornet of a troop in his younger years, and afterward a captain of foot. He went out 10 times against the Indians. He and his sixth wife were buried together the same day in the family vault. - from Dwight, Benjamin Woodbridge, The history of the descendants of John Dwight of Dedham, Mass., 1874 -----------------------
