226

in Boston June 10, 1691.  She survived him and m. as a second husband, Benjamin Whitmore of Newton, Oct. 23, 1729.  They had children: (1) John Whitmore, b. June 28, 1730, (2) Joseph Whitmore, b. Oct. 13, 1732, and (3) Sarah Whitmore, b. July 29, 1735. 

Mr. John Cheney began his manhood life on lands inherited from his father in Newbury.  But the marriage of his older sister, Hannah, to a Newton man turned his thoughts in that direction; so he removed thither, also.  He joined the church in his native town just before he reached the age of citizenship, April 4, 1697, and carried his religion and his firm practical character to his new home.  In 1723 we find his name in a list of Newton citizens who protested against a town vote which they regarded illegal; and he was an upright citizen.  His home was near the Upper Falls on the Charles river.  His farm contained 50 acres.  His death occurred in 1728.  His widow and John Buzzy administered on his estate.  Guardians were appointed for the younger children, and no division was made till they came to adult age.  Oct. 2, 1764, John, Timothy and Moses Cheney, with John Draper, husband of the youngest dau. petitioned the court to set off the land to their brother William and let him pay each heir a cash equivalent for his portion; and this was done.
