    Should I have used a semicolon after "Massachusetts" instead? Or is the comma correct?

    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by SethG, Jul 2, 2016.

    I used a comma, instead of a semicolon, after "Massachusetts" below. Should I have used a semicolon after "Massachusetts" instead?

    Joe Blow, 45, of Hartford, Connecticut; Jane Doe, 61, of Topeka, Kansas; and John Doe, 37, of Marlboro, Massachusetts, were arrested for conspiracy.

    Thank you.

    The comma is correct.
