Marlborough VR: 1683; Nourse, Early Rec.: Jul 2, 1682; Burr: 2, 7 mo. 1682; JWH 7,2, 1682;
John F. Chandler: "Observe that the Lancaster VR have "Josiah" son of "Josiah" and Mary born 1682 "Jul" 2! I'd say that one original record has to be the source of both of these people. This takes the pressure off the seeming double identity of Jonas[2]'s son Josiah[3], whose gravestone extrapolates to a birth date in 1698 Oct."
John Chandler: "> p. 15, " in the 12th and 13th entry, read Jonas & for Josiah &" it applies only to the father's name in those two entries. I still feel that the son's name probably should also be corrected, but the only way to be sure is to go to the original Middlesex County court records and check again. I think it quite possible that Nourse relied on someone else's (erroneous) transcription of those records to extract the ones relevant to Lancaster and was given the correction by a third party. The July/September issue is disturbing and suggests that all the other months on p.15 may be wrong as well."
