Zebina Moses, "Historical Sketches of John Moses, of Plymouth: a
Settler of 1632 to 1640; John Moses, of Windsor and Simsbury, a
Settler Prior to 1647; and John Moses, of Portsmouth, a Settler Prior
to 1640; Also a Genealogical Record of Some of Their Descendants," 2
Vols. in 1 (Hartford, CT: Press of the Case, Lockwood & Brainard Co.,
1890; repr. Salem, MA: Higginson Book Co., 199?).
The book concludes that John Moses of Plymouth appears to have left
no descendants in Plymouth Colony, that it is possible that John
Moses of Windsor and Simsbury was related to John of Plymouth, and
that John of Portsmouth appears to be related to neither of the other two.
