"In the Roxbury Church Records, under date of November 27, 1665. Mr. Danforth, the minister writes:

'Mrs Sarah Alcock dyed, a vertuous woman... Two years later, March 27, 1667, it is recorded in the same book that 'Mr John Alcock, Physican, dyed. His liver dryed up and become schirrous.' Possibly an atopsy was made in this case." Source: The Memorial History of Boston: Including Suffolk County, Volume 4, Page 534
