Signed Joseph Sould, Marcy Soul, Amos Samson, Samuel Bartlett Justice of Peace, Josiah Cotton Reg. Josiah Cotton (1679/801756) was an Indian missionary, Justice of the Court of Common Pleas. Register of Deeds and Plymouth Colony. He was a grandson of John Cotton.
(15851652) and a nephew of Cotton Mather. His father John Cotton Jr. Was a pastor of the First Church in Plymouth Colony.
In 1729, Governor Samuel Shute. Appointed him justice of the peace and quorum. As a civil magistrate, Judge Cotton rose to considerable heights, but in what he called his "Indian Business", the lay missionary labored in the long shadow cast by his father. From the start, however, Cotton's missionary enterprise was vulnerable.
And his own father, he had no settled pastorate. Instead, he spent the majority of this time preaching to isolated Indian families and indentured servants living in the midst of English society. Some wear to edges, pasted onto another piece of paper, some blemishing/yellowing. I like to send off after a week or so. Bubble wrapped and then wrapped in cardboard and mailed in a bubble wrapped envelope in most cases.
