Samuel DUNBAR was graduated at Harvard College in 1723, and was ordained pastor of the First Parish of Stroughton in 1727, where he remained in faithful service for fifty-five years, until his death, 15 Jun 1783. There was no other religious society in all the territory of the First Parish of Stroughton, being that territory now included in and forming the town of Canton.

Paul Revere, at the age of twenty-one, accompanied Col Gridley to Crown Point in 1755-56, and asisted in the struggle then going on. Rev. Mr. Dunbar accompanied them on this distant and perilous journey, returning to his parochial duties in December, 1755. Source. "History of the Town of Hingham" by Lincoln, George.
