  • Notes 
    • Widow of John White of Concord who was killed by native Americans.

      Contrary to what many online sources say, her marriage to John Crary is recorded at Concord, Massachusetts. The record says that she is currently of Plainfield — presumably Plainfield, Connecticut, not Plainfield in western Massachusetts.

      "Prudence Hayward was daughter of Joseph Hayward of Concord, Mass., by his 2nd wife, Elizabeth (Treadway) Hapgood, widow of Shadrach Hopgood, who was killed by Indians at Brookfield, Aug. 2, 1675, he being of Capt. Wheeler's Co. Her birth is not on record, but her father, Joseph Hayward, who was made guardian of 6 minor children of his own, Jan. 2, 1699-1700, for certain property 'to them belonging from the estate of their grandfather, Nathaniel Treadway, late of Watertown', names Prudence as about 12 years of age." ["Sherman, White," citation details below.]
