MacCarty, Thaddeus

a Congregational minister, was born in Boston in 1721; graduated from Harvard University in 1739; studied theology three years, and was ordained pastor of the Congregational Church at Kingston, Mass., on Nov. 3, 1742. When Whitefield appeared in that region in 1745, he appointed a committee "to prevent the intrusion of roving exhorters." A false report spread that Whitefield was to open communion for him, whereupon his parishioners nailed the doors and windows, and Maccarthy's request for dismission was granted. He then preached in Worcester, Mass., from Nov. 27,1746, until the time of his death, July 20, 1784. His publications are, Farewell Sermon at Kingston (1745): -Two Discourses on the Day of the Annual Fast (before the expedition into Canada, 1759); and other sermons. See Sprague, Annals of the Amer. Pulpit, 1:423.
