Page 46-47: John Tower '2' died in Braintree, Aug. 30, 1693, aged 53y 8 m 17 d. Sarah (Hardin) Tower died Oct 16, 1729.
John Tower, the oldest son of John Tower '1', lived in Hingham some fourteen years after his marriage, when he removed to Braintree, where he died a few years before his father's death. In Dec 27, 1682, at a town meeting in Hingham, it was voted to sell the wood at a place called "Couper's Islands" to such of the proprietors of the adjoining meadows as "will have a part of it, xxx they paying ten punds in money." This money the town gave to John Tower, Jr., "toward thepaying of his purchas of land he bouth in Plymouth Colonyl." It does not appear that he settled upon this land, but soon after went to Braintree.
