  • Notes 
    • "John Whitmore was one of the early settlers at Medford, at least at the period when the records commence. [...] He was in service, under Major Swayne, against the Indians at Saco; and his wife petitioned the General Court that her husband might be returned to her and her three infant children. The fall after his return, he was engaged in purchasing lands and building a house." [Record of the Descendants of Francis Whitmore of Cambridge, Massachusetts]
