Are you sure Hinshaw has additional records from the Salem MM? I think what you really want are the complete Salem MM records, whether they're by Hinshaw or not....right? So, don't limit yourself to just Hinshaw,
I have Hinshaw on CD and thought I'd see what I could find. Actually, what it says is

"1783, 7, 28 POTTS, John and wife Hannah (late Tyler) dis med" (If you're going to be working with Quakers, you need to read up on their dating....7thm, as this date is, is NOT's complicated to explain, so just do your "Quaker homework"...but as you can see, John's surname was Potts, and she was a Tyler before her marriage to John (can't tell from this if she was a widow or Tyler was her maiden name....although, often they make it clear if someone was a widow). John Potts and Hannah Tyler married against discipline and were disowned for it.
So, as this wasn't about a man named John Tyler, who is it you're looking for.....? Let me know and Ill see what I can do, but it looks like someone just read the record wrong and then passed it along to you...
