US state capitals then & now

Can you guess the capitals of the US states at three points in time?
Point 1: First ever! (Before statehood, marked with ** if outside present state's borders)
Point 2: At statehood (Thirteen colonies statehood is 1776 despite later ratification in cases, see source as in caveat)
Point 3: Present day.
All out of state capitals are, still, within the US of today, except for one that is in Mexico of today.
A few of the places are no longer inhabited.
Some states used to have more than one capital.

The source claims it was then spelled Plimouth.

Additionally, I checked from other sources and it's not only confirmed, but there are two more acceptable spellings. So, four in total.
