This is a wonderful, original document dated 1697, Rehoboth, Massachusetts, where Nicholas Peck has signed a deposition taken from Nathaniel and Thomas Cooper. Seems Nathaniel and
Thomas were at the house of Samuel Newman Jr., when Mary Newman was present, Daniel Smith told said Mary that the child he was reputed to have should be called Newman
Smith and said he was going to get the name entered on record and Mary made no objection...signed Nicholas Peck. Document is 6x8, left side faults with paper repair on edge to stabilize, else in overall fair condition.
