Inscription:Capt. John Johnson, ESQ and his 2nd wife Margery Scudder Johnson are buried in Eliot Burying Ground, West Roxbury, Mass. This cemetery was established in 1630. The grave markers of Capt. John & his wife no longer exist. Note: I've been to this cemetery and his gravestone no longer exists there or is illegible. It is my feeling that Capt. John Johnson should be listed in the Eliot Buring Grounds in West Roxbury. His remains would still be there, and only the Plot is unknown, because you could not find an legible stone. I, too, could not find, with certainty, who his parents are. Ancestry.com gave me Rev. John Johnson 15501643. He was an Anglican priest of the Church of England and educated at St. John's College, Cambridge, and Hannah Throckmorton 15441588, the granddaughter of Sir Thomas Throckmorton and Elizabeth Berkeley.
