Jesse Bullock, Esqr., "in the 65th Year of His Age".
Dr. Jesse Bullock came into Freetown over one hundred years ago, from Rehoboth. He married Mehitable Winslow in 1765. In 1774, he was chosen one of a committee to draft resolutions expressive of the sense of the town in regard to the destruction of the tea in Boston Harbor. In 1777 Dr. Bullock was recommended to have the care of a hospital for the inoculation of small pox. In 1779 he was chosen chairman of a committee to draw up instructions for a delegate to the Constitutional Convention of 1780. In 1783 he was elected Representative to General Court. He was also appointed a Justice of the Peace. He had an extensive practice, at least territorially, and was a man of wide reading and general intelligence, and was considered an authority in his profession.
