  • Notes 
    • Her second husband was Benoni Jones, by whom she had four children. According to Nathaniel Goodwin (citation details below), Benoni and the two youngest of their children were "slain by the enemy, at Poscummuck, north end of Mount Tom, Northampton, May 13, 1704" and she was "captured by the enemy, at the time her Jones husband and children were slain, and carried to Canada, and there died, after being tormented by the Catholic priests who were trying to convert her."
