John Cotton (1712-1789) was born in Plymouth, Massachusetts on April 5, 1712 to Judge Josiah and Hannah (Sturtevant) Cotton. He was their oldest son. Cotton attended Harvard College, receiving an A.B. in 1730 and an A.M. in 1733. He was a successful student and served as schoolmaster at several schools, including Billingsgate, Rochester, and Middleborough, following completion of his undergraduate work. He first preached in 1732, and after preaching in numerous locations he became minister at Halifax, Massachusetts in 1735. Cotton married his second cousin, Hannah Sturtevant, in 1746; they would have eleven children together. He served as pastor of Halifax until 1755, when he was forced to resign due to his failing voice. He then moved, with his family, to Plymouth, where he replaced his deceased father as Registrar of Deeds, as well as becoming town treasurer and assessor in Plymouth. In 1762 he was appointed justice of the peace. John Cotton died in Plymouth on November 4, 1789.
