Thomas Wallcut (1758-1840), son of Benjamin and Elizabeth Marshall Wallcut, was educated to become an Indian missionary at the Indian Charity School in Hanover, N.H. In 1774, he passed the exams for Dartmouth College, but instead went to live with the St. Francis Indians near Montreal. During the Revolution, he worked in hospitals at Albany and Boston. Wallcut was devoted to antiquarian research and the collecting of books and pamphlets. He was one of the ten original members of the Massachusetts Historical Society and its first Recording Secretary. In 1812, he was a corporator of the American Antiquarian Society. He earned his living for almost forty years as a clerk at the State House in Boston.
