According to Prescott Memorial " John Prescott graduated Harvard College 1727. He settled in Concord, Mass., as a physician, with his father, where he was highly esteemed for his professional skill and excellent character. He enlisted one hundred men, which he commanded in the unfortunate expedition to Cuba in 1740. Upon its failure, in 1743, he returned to this country, and soon after was sent by the Government to England, where he was treated with great respect. But, being seized with the small-pox, he died of that disease in London, Dec 30, 1743, in his thirty-seventh year. In testimony of the esteem in which his services were held, the British Government conferred upon his widow, an annual pension during her life. She died May 12, 1795, aged 88. They had three sons and two daughters."

Only Ann, Rebecca and Willoughby lived to adulthood.
