MACCLINTOCK, Samuel, clergyman, born in Medford, Massachusetts, 1 May, 1732; died in Greenland, New Hampshire, 27 April, 1804. He was graduated at Princeton in 1751, and in 1756 was ordained pastor of a Congregational church at Greenland, New Hampshire, where he spent the remainder of his life, except the period during which he officiated as chaplain in the French war and for the New Hampshire troops in 1775. He was present at the battle of Bunker Hill, and figures prominently in Trumbull's picture of that event as the clergyman in bands. His sermons were characterized by soundness of thought and purity of style. He was given the degree of M. A. by Harvard in 1761, and received that of D.D. from Yale in 1791. He published "A Sermon on the Justice of God in the Mortality of Man" (1759); "The Artifices of Deceivers Detected" (1770); " Herodias, or Cruelty and Revenge the Effects of Unlawful Pleasure" (1772); "An Epistolary Correspondence with Reverend John C. Ogden" on apostolic succession (1791); "The Choice," a sermon (1798); and "An oration Commemorative of Washington" (1800).
