Born Mar 2 16721,2 [Mar 2 16713], Dorchester, Massachusetts1,2.  [probably recorded as 1-2-1671/2 Old Style, equivalent to Mar 2 1672 in the modern Gregorian calendar].  

William may have died before 1732 as he is not mentioned in his brother John's will, which otherwise mentions all other living siblings.4  He was however living in 1688 when his father Joshua prepared his will.5
