Danforth, Samuel, son of the preceding, was born Dec. 18, 1666, and graduated at Harvard College in 1683. He was one of the most learned and eminent ministers of his day. In the beginning of the year 1705, through his labors, a deep impression was made upon the minds of his people, and a revival occurred, of which an account is given in some letters of Mr. Danforth, preserved in Prince's Christian History. He published a eulogy on Thomas Leonard, 1713, and the election sermon, 1714. He left behind him a manuscript Indian dictionary, a part of which is now in the library of the Massachusetts Historical Society. It seems to have been formed from Eliot's Indian Bible, as there is a reference under every word to a passage of Scripture. He died Nov. 14, 1727.
