    Notes 
    • JOHN, Dorchester 1639, by w. Grace had John, b. 28 Feb. 1641; Thomas, 10 July 1643, d. at 13 yrs.; rem. to Braintree, there had Dependence, 7 Mar. 1649; Temperance, 30 Mar. 1651; William, 31 Mar. 1653; Elizabeth 29 Sept. 1655; Thomas, again, 10 Mar. 1658, d. next yr.; and Samuel, 22 Feb. 1660. His w. Grace d. 28 Feb. 1681; and he m. under a contr. of 8 July 1683, Elinor, d. of Rev. William Thompson, wid. of William Veazey. Prob. he was that freem. of 1644, tho. Thayer says 1639 (when no such person is found), and he prefers claim of Cambridge John. He d. 6 Aug. 1692, aged 80; and ten pages of Thayer's Genealogy are filled with acco. of his descend. one of wh. was Rev. Jonathan of Andover, H. C. 1771. His wid. d. 23 Apr. 1711, aged 85. Temperance m. John Bowditch, and d. 12 Aug. 1720. Very difficult is the problem of adjusting the parentage of descend. of this John French, as in the distribut. of his est. was needful; and tho. after much study I succeed. for all others, the Lambs evade my search. See Geneal. Reg. XII. 353. [1]
