Deathdate of John Potter: p 80, although this is confusing from the entry in the Ancient Town Record volume and the added footnote: "It is Ordered that the Treasurer take care and see that widdow Potter the midwives house* be mended, and paid for out of the Treasury" The footnote*: "Elizabeth, widow of John Potter, who died in 1643. Her house was on the southwest corner of George and State streets." (Elizabeth?) (1)
