DEPOSITION OF MAJOR JAMES CONVERS.
[Vide page 25 of this work.) The original of the following deposition is in the possession of Rev. Lucius R. Paige, D.D., of Cambridge. Major James Convers, of Woburn, distinguished for his resolute defence of Storer's garrison at Wells, died “ July yo gh, 1706.” His father, Ensign James Convers, a valuable and esteemed citizen of Woburn, died May 10, 1715, aged 95. His uncle, Dea. Josiah Convers, died Feb. 3, 1689-90, aged 72. Lieut. Matthew Johnson, “ late of Woobourne,” mentioned herein, was a son of Capt. Edward Johnson, author of “ The Wonder Working Providence of Sion's Saviour in New England,” and died July 19, 1696. The foregoing are particularly mentioned in Sewall's History of Woburn, recently published. For further notice of Major Convers, see Mather's Magnalia, Hutchinson’s Hist. Mass., Belknap's Hist. New Hampshire, &c.
James Convers aged about fifty-two years being sworne doth say that he very well remembers the mill that stood upon the brook at a place called Menotome in Cambridge bounds, which mill, when it was in being, was called Capt" Cooks Mill.
I, this deponent, also do know very well that the said mill was demolished a considerable time before John Ralph bought that place and so were the other buildings, except some small ruins thereof were to be seen when said Ralph came there to live, and the said John Ralph built the mill that is now there standing and the hous and the barne, and the said Ralph bought the timber for the wheels, the Irons for said mill and the millstones of this deponants father and his uncle Josiah Convers, and that Lt. Matthew Johnson late of Woobourne built the said mill for said Ralph that is to say he did the millwright worke thereof, and this deponant did worke at the said mill and dwelling hous, for the aforsJohn Ralph, who payd him honestly for the same, and this mill and hous is the same that is now in controversie between Mr. Cothoo [Carthew?] atturney to Mr. Quick and William Cutter. Sworne in Court Jan 28 1696-7.

* This Bible is in the writer's possession. Dr. Benjamin Cutter procured it many years since from Mrs. Anne (Cutter) Brown (Vide vi. 3), to whom it had descended through her ancestors. The writer has also an ancient plan showing a survey of the lands bequeathed by William Cutter to his sons Richard, John, William and Samuel, This plan was probably delineated about 1725, by the youngest son, Ammi Ruhamah Cutter, afterwards minster of North Yarmouth. No inscription appears to explain.
