Chaplin, Daniel, Dd
Chaplin, Daniel, D.D., a Congregational minister, and native of Rowley, Mass., was born Dec. 30, 1743. He graduated at Harvard, 1772, and was made D.D. by the same college in 1817. He was ordained pastor at Groton, Jan. 1, 1778, and remained in the same charge for fifty years. His great piety and decision of character gave him great influence in the stormy times of the Revolution, and his long ministry was acceptable and useful, until, toward the close of his life, part of his congregation chose a Unitarian ,minister. He died in peace in 1831. — Sprague, Annals, 2:150.
