John supposedly came with his parents and siblings to Boston in 1717. He bought lots 10 and 14 in Spencer on 25 September 1731. John was elected a selectman there at the first official town meeting on 14 May 1753 and again in 1754. He was also a town tax assessor in those years. He was on the Committee of Correspondence for Spencer in 1774.
