=== Research notes from John Schmeekle
Iit appears that this profile has conflated two different John Colcloughs, apparently father and son. Boddie mentions an inventory of John Colclough in 1702 (and mistakenly assumes that it pertained to Jr., not Sr.), and it appears that Hannah Colclough who wrote her will in 1700 was John Sr.'s second wife (widow), and that her reference to her "brother-in-law" Benjamin Colclough actually meant step-son, but the younger second wife was most likely a similar age as Benjamin. Benjamin's widow Rachel was making land deals in the 1720s with John Colclough, identified as brother of her deceased husband Benjamin, so clearly the 1700 Hannah Colclough wasn't the wife of John, Jr.
