About Frances Whitcomb (Coggan)

The couple had 5 sons, perhaps 6, and three daughters.

Upon arrival in America, the family located in Scituate, MA, later removing to Lancaster. John set about rapidly acquiring land in the outlying parts of Lancaster in addition to his proprietor's 30 acre house lot near the center of the Lancaster settlement. Much of the land he purchased eventually became the town of Bolton. He, in fact, ended up owning about a quarter of the land presently in the boundaries of Bolton, including all of the northeast section of town, from Main St. to the present Harvard and Stow borders. Over the next 250 years that area was populated largely by Whitcomb descendants.

When Frances died, her youngest daughter, Mary, was executrix of her will.
