Last May, we looked at William Parsons Lunt. The last post started a list of progeny on which there were a couple more ministers. No doubt, we'll find more.

Taking these two in chronological order, we have Nathaniel Thayer and Rev. Endicott Peabody. These both were descendants via son Henry.
  • Nathaniel Thayer -- he was a congregational Unitarian. He gave the 4 June 1798 sermon to the Ancient & Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts. He was known for helping to smooth matters and served on more than 150 church councils.  
  • Rev. Endicott Peabody -- he went to an Episcopal seminary. The Reverend went west during the days that were wild. He was in Tombstone, AZ and knew Wyatt Earp. Later, he founded Groton School for Boys. One of his charges was Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
