John died in Bridgewater, Plymouth county, Province of Massachusetts Bay.

John's grave is not marked with a headstone. John's name is not listed in Williams Latham's book "Epitaphs in Old Bridgewater", so a stone did not exist in the 1880s. The book "Vital Records of Bridgewater, Massachusetts to 1850" makes reference to PR3, which is the "record of burials in the South Precinct Burying Place, kept by Lt. John Washburn, 1739-1797". If John had a headstone, then the Vital Records would instead make reference to "G.R.7. - gravestone record, Old Graveyard". In this cemetery, families were buried in groups, so it can be presumed that he is buried with his wife Margaret and son John.
