John Hancock was born in Quincy and his father was the Minister at First Parish Church, but died when John was young. The cemetery I showed on October Theme Day was "Hancock Cemetery," and the main street in Quincy is actually Hancock Street, not Adams Street, as one might expect.
John Hancock was the only signer of the Declaration of Independence to sign on July 4th, all other signers of the Declaration didn't sign until August.

A late winter snowstorm named "Stella" is due to bear down on the Northeast Tuesday!
After today's snowfall, the sky took on a watercolor glow of pink, purple and blue. It was a winter wonderland once again.
From atop Penn's Hill, Abigail Adams and her young son John, could have heard the women chanting in Boston today.
