Hi Mike.The information that I have is that James Atherton lived in Lancaster between 1643 and 1675, and then moved to Dorchester, then to Milton in 1678.He then moved to Sherborn, where he died 6 AUG 1710 at the home of his daughter, Deborah, wife of Captain Samuel Bullard.
The children of James and Hannah Atherton were:
James Atherton, b. 13 MAY 1654 in Lancaster, MA Joshua Atherton, b. 13 MAY 1656 in Lancaster, MA Hannah Atherton, b. 10 FEB 1657/58 in Lancaster, MA Mary Atherton, b. 17 FEB 1660/61 in Lancaster, MA Elizabeth Atherton, b. 6 OCT 1666 in Lancaster, MA Deborah Atherton, b. 1 JUN 1669 in Lancaster, MA Joseph Atherton, b. 28 APR 1672 in Lancaster, MA
James’ son, Joshua, was Carol’s gggggg-grandfather.Carol asked me to thank you for your efforts in her behalf.
