I see you made added some death info to John Patterson back in September. I couldn't find a source for it. (I see that it is marked uncertain). I found a book that 1 Mar 1707 that he received a land grant from the town of Billerica. Wondering if maybe there was some kind of mixup. Thanks for any help you can provide!
