On 19 Oct. 1630, Richard Ingraham asked to become a Freeman of Massachusetts. Seven months later - on 18 May 1631 - he was granted that privilege. The Freeman were the only colonist who could vote. Before being chosen, one had to be a church-going adult male, and must have experienced a "transforming spiritual experience by God's grace, as attested by himself and confirmed by church leaders."
