    Notes 
    • ". . .David Clapp, third, father of John Cotton Clapp, was born in Dorchester, February 6, 1860 [ATJ:probably 1806]. He served an apprenticeship to the printer's trade with the Hon. John Cotton, of Boston, in whose office, at the corner of Washington and Franklin Streets, he continued for some years subsequently as a journeyman. Mr. Cotton was a direct descendant of the Rev. John Cotton, second minister of the First Church in Boston, who came from Boston, England, and in whose honor the New England metropolis received its name. After a brief partnership, in 1831, with Mr. Hull, and also later with Mr. Cotton, in 1834, Mr. Clapp purchased the business, which he continued to carry on at the same location till 1861. Franklin Street was then widened at its head, and the printing office, after remaining in that place for a period of thirty-nine years, was removed to 334 (in 1875 changed to 564) Washington Street. Here it remained until 1883, when it was removed to 35 Bedford High Street. In 1889 it was again removed, to 115 High Street, and 1895 to 291 Congress Street. Mr. Clapp was married April, 9, 1835 to Mary Elizabeth Tucker, daughter of Atherton Tucker, of Milton. She as born August 25, 1808, and was a descendant of Robert Tucker, of Milton, who came to this country from England early in the seventeenth century, and many of whose descendants have always lived in Dorchester and Milton. She died in October, 1893. They had six children, all of whom were living until the death of the youngest in 1896. Mr. David Clapp died in 1893. . . " Source: John Cotton Clapp, 1837-
