I don't know, but you should be able to find out in one or more of
these biographies of John Eliot, "Apostle to the Indians":
Erastus Worthington, "John Eliot and the Indian Village at Natick"
(Hyde Park, MA: Hyde Park Historical Society, 1890)
Henry A. S. Dearborn, "A Sketch of the Life of the Apostle Eliot,
Prefatory to a Subscription for Erecting a Monument to His Memory"
(Roxbury, MA: Norfolk County Journal Press, 1850)
William Wallace Tooker, "John Eliot's First Indian Teacher and
Interpreter Cockenoe-De-Long Island and the Story of His Career from
the Early Records" (London: Henry Stevens' Son and Stiles, 1896)
Robert Boody Caverly, "History of the Indian Wars of New England,
with Eliot the Apostle Fifty Years in the Midst of Them" (Boston and
Chicago: James H. Earle, 1882)
Robert Boody Caverly, "Life and Labors of John Eliot the Apostle
Among the Indian Nations of New England, Together with an Account of
the Eliots in England" (Boston: James H. Earle, 1882)
Nehemiah Adams, "Lives of the Chief Fathers of New England, Vol. III:
The Life of John Eliot" (Boston: Massachusetts Sabbath School Society, 1870)
For all on the list -
I have five sources for copies of books online. Two are subscription
sites - Ancestry.com and Heritage Quest Online. Your local library or
one nearby may offer free access to one or both.
The third source also specializes in genealogy - the Family History Archive:
The last two are of general interest, but have many genealogical and
historical works. One is the Internet Archive Text Archive:
and the last is Google Books:
