Doctor Jonathan Prescott, one of my sixth great grandfathers, resided in Concord, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, where he was a physician.

Jonathan Prescott and Rebecca had eleven known children.
i. Jonathan Prescott. Born 3 June 1702; and married a woman named Mary.
ii. Rebecca Prescott. Born 14 August 1704.

xi. Benjamin Prescott. Born about 1724/5/ and was killed during the French and Indian War in May, 1745 while on an expedition.
A list of deaths in French Prison Camps, 1757–1758 indicates that a Jonathan Prescott died while in France. I need to determine whether this is the eldest son of Jonathan and Rebecca Prescott.
Study the deeds of Middlesex County, Massachusetts, to study land ownership of the Prescott families.
