Bio

from his gravestone: "Here lies interred, the body of the Rev'd Isaac Chauncey, pastor of the first church of christ in Hadley, who was of a truly peaceable and catholick spirit, a good scholar, an eloquent orator, an able divine, a lively, pathetick preacher, a burning and shining light in this candlestick, an exemplary christian, an Isralite indeed, in whom was no guile. He departed this life May ye 2nd, A.D. 1745, act. 74"
