I think the confusion comes because there are at least 3 Mordecai Lincolns.
Mordecai Lincoln, a blacksmith - born 14 JUN 1657 ~ married Sarah Jones
Mordecai Lincoln - born 24 APR 1686 in Mass. ~ married Hannah Salter. They had several children, including your John.
(After Hannah's death, Mordecai married again ~ this time to: Mary Rogers Robeson)
So some people refer to the 1st and 2nd Mordecais as Sr. and Jr., while others refer to the 2nd and 3rd Mordecais as Sr. and Jr.
Mordecai Lincoln was born on April 24, 1686 in Hingham, Massachusetts, and married Hannah Salter. He was an iron master. (The Scituate Historical Society home in Massachusetts is the Cudworth House, built on land granted to Richard Garrett before 1646. Mordecai Lincoln forged the huge cauldron on the hearth.)
Mordecai Lincoln eventually moved first to New Jersey and then to Pennsylvania, and settled on 1,000 acres of land purchased from Thomas Millard in what is now Berks County (prior to 1752 Berks County was part of Chester County). Thomas Millard's son Joseph Millard (1711-1781) later married Mordecai Lincoln's daughter Hannah Lincoln. Mordecai Lincoln and family were Quakers belonging to the Exeter Friends Meeting, which was also home to the Boone family ancestors of Daniel Boone. Mordecai Lincoln died on December 1736 in Amity, Pennsylvania and is buried in the Exeter Friends burial grounds shown below. The Exeter Friends Meeting house is still in use today near Oley, Pennsylvania in Berks County. (Berks County was part of Chester County until 1752). The archives of the Exeter Friends Meeting is housed at the Friends Historical Library at Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania.
Mordecai Lincoln belonged to Exeter Friends Meeting:
