he was librarian for a short time.
He was chaplain on board the frigate Hancock in 1777; but, returning to Medford, died there, May 6, 1781.
His wife died Nov. 29, 1800, aged 69.
She was, through her mother, a lineal descendant of the famous Puritan divine, John Cotton.
Their children were--
31-51Cotton Brown, b. July 20, 1765; d. May, 12, 1834.
52Peter Chardon, b. Jan. 6, 1767; d. Jan. 1, 1849.

54Joanna C., b. May 18, 1772; m. Naof division.
He served in the Indian wars, under Major Willard, as the treasurers' books witness.
His name, with his wife's, stands on a petition in favor of an old woman charged with being a witch; hence he can hardly have been of the extreme Puritan party, although a member of the church.

Family of Albree.
We can trace this Medford family to Nassau, in the Island of New Providence, the capital of the Bahamas.
In 1672, the English government sent Mr. Collingworth to superintend the settlement of that island and its chief city by Englishmen.
The attempt succeeded but imperfectly; because ther a few years, resigned his office in despair; and the government appointed Mr. Clark governor of the island, and gave him means for sustaining himself.
The early English settlers were selected for their energy and enterprise; and they fixed on Nassau as their central port.
The place grew and flourished; but its Spanish enemies were numerous and bloodthirsty.
