John (Cornet) BUCK died about 1697. John BUCK sailed to America possibly with his brother James, in 1638 on the (DILIGENT), removed to Scituate 1650,

married Elizabeth, daughter of Samuel Holbrook, of Weymouth, and had by her ten children - Elizabeth, born 1653; Mary, born 1655, married to Benjamin Chandler; Joseph, born 1657; John, born 1659; Hannah, born 1661; Susanna, born 1664; Benjamin, born 1665; Deborah, born 1670, married to Isaac Randall, November 29th, 1692; Robert, born 1672; Rachel, born 1674, married to John Dwelly, January 4th, 1692.

From the History of Scituate: "Cornet John Buck appears in Scituate in 1650....He succeeded the veteran, Robert Stetson, as 'Cornet of the Troopers' before the Philip's War in which he was constantly in service. He married in 1693 the widow of the second Edward Dotey, who was probably Sarah, sister of the famous Elder Faunce. Some of this family have descendants in Easton.

"John Buck's will is dated 1697 and gives legacies: 'To daughter Chandler; to Isaac Randall's children; to John Garrett's children; to all my grandchildren living at Yarmouth and Sandwich.'

From another source: "There is an account of Francis Adams, born in England who married Mary Buck of Scituate. They had seven children, among whom was Thomas who married Bathsheba Bradford, a great-granddaughter of Governor Bradford and lived near Stony Brook in Kingston."

Nothing has been found to prove that this individual was the son of William (RIN 701), but other members of the family have a short history that includes John as William's son.
