From user "flgrl":

Thomas Macy was from Wiltshire, England/Town of Salisbury/Parish of Chilmark. He was married to SARAH HOPCOT. Came to America in 1635. He is listed among the original settlers of Salisbury, Massachusetts.

Thomas Macy was a merchant, planter, one of the select-men of the town, a juryman, and preacher of the Baptist faith. Massachusetts laws passed in 1656 and 1657 did not encourage freedom of worship. Because of these laws, Thomas Macy moved to Nantuckett where he "believed he could lead a more peaceful life". October 1, 1675, according to historical papers, Thomas Macy was commissioned Chief Magistrate of the town(Nantuckett).

The Clock of Life - The clock of life is wound but once. And no man has the power, to tell just when the hands will stop. At late or early hour. To lose one's wealth is sad, indeed. To lose one's health is more. To lose one's soul is such a loss. ...(Read more)
