1726 December 27 (Tuesday). I rode to Mr. Barretts. Here was Mrs. Ford and Mrs. Leasingby. O’bed I read Mr. Moodys Memoirs of Joseph Quasson and Just Sentiments on the protestant Religion. I likewise dip’d into Mr. Cooper’s Account of Mr. John Coney.
Probably Mrs. Stephen Ford of Charlestown.
This name appears several times but extensive search reveals no clue to the identity of the person.
