  3. Find A Grave: Fox Cemetery, Berkley, MA, in Find A Grave
    John Hathaway Jr..

    [Note: gravestone barely readable, or not at all in many places as surface has partially chipped away. No inscription given though the name "John Hatheway" is readable. Claims death date 11 Jun 1730 in Dighton (11 Jun 1730 appears to be the date this man's will was proved, so his death would be a different date, somewhat before this). However, one partially readable place appears to show the letters Do (possibly part of Anno Dom) followed by an 8 (possibly part of a year in the 1800s, based on the information expected to be in that position on the gravestone). So it is not clear that this would be the grave of John Hathaway of Freetown (as his will describes him). Confirming evidence would be useful.]
