  • Notes 
    • "According to her obituary, Hannah was the heroine of the 1708 Indian attack on the Rev. Rolfe's garrison at Haverhill. She is credited with saving several of Rolfe's childern by concealing them under tubs. Other accounts credit Hagar, a black servant, with saving the children, Hannah surviving by hiding under an apple chest and remaining undiscovered."
