John bought house in Charlestown (Suffolk Co.) for 38 pounds in 1681. Was accredited for service in King Phillip's War. In 1684, John & Robert Melvin each paid the first rate as members of the Scots Charitable Society of Boston - the first charitable organization in the New England States. This proves their Scotch origin, as there were no other nationalities represented until 1700. John's gravestone states his age at 74, however in a disposition in 1684 he stated his age as 28 years, a discrepancy of 1 year.
