ISRAEL, Stratford 1669, s. of that lubricous John of the same (suppos. to have been found as s. of William of Roxbury), by w.

JOHN, Dover, adm. an inhab. 24 Apr. 1636, but, perhaps, as no more is heard of him there, he rem. to Roxbury. JOHN, Stratford 1650-85. Trumbull, I. 105, says he came from Roxbury; and he had John, b. Oct. 1642. But all of it seems erron. He was really s. of the wid. C.; had, says the preposter. tradit. d. Elizabeth old eno. to m. John, the eldest s. of Gov. Thomas Welles, bear. to him sev. ch. and, next, m. 19 Mar. 1663, John Wilcockson. Almost every word of Trumbull, and of Cothren, borro. from T. in relat. to the Roxbury deriv. of John, and William, is wrong; and must have been a tradit. of the mid. of the eighteenth century. Yet a true John of S. by w. Elizabeth wh. d. as Cothren tells, 1682, beside that John of 1642, had Israel, Apr. 1644; Elizabeth May 1647 (wh. by the tradit. bec. w. of John Welles, eldest s. of the Gov. bore him one s. in 1648, the yr. aft. her own b. and tw. 1651); Thomas, Jan. 1649; Joseph, Nov. 160; Benjamin, Sept. 1652; and [[vol. 1, p. 486]] Hannah, Feb. 1654 or 5. None of this must be reject. but perhaps when Cothren add, that he d. 6 Dec. 1707, aged 96 yr. and that his wid. Margaret d. 1714, acquiesc. of our judgm. would not be so easy. JOHN, Roxbury 1660, s. of William, m. 26 Dec. 1661, Rebecca, d. of late Thomas Wheeler. He may have been of Dover 166.
