WILLIAM, Boston, m. 19 July 1660, Joanna Lynn, had Sarah, b. 20
Apr. 1662; Mary, 15 Jan. 1664; John, as I judge, 20 Dec. 1666 (tho.

1700. He was capt. of a comp. under col. Church in the E. expedit.
1704; as Hutchinson has compil. from Nile's Hist. of the Ind. and
French wars. He was, perhaps, s. of Timothy, but no earlier deriv.
can prob. be successful, tho. fondly Dr. Cogswell in Geneal. Reg. I. 90,
