"Durkee, Dea. John, son of John, of Ipswich, Mass., was born Nov. 23d, 1689. He at first settled at Gloucester in his native state, but about 1720 removed to West Farms. He purchased lands of John Waterman, Jr., upon Portipaug hill, and his dwelling was located a short distance south of where Charles T. Hazen now lives, and upon the same side of the highway. His wife, Mary, died in 1732. He married for a second wife in 1738, Hannah Adgate."
