Martha Tuthill, my 7th great grandmother, daughter of John Tuthill and Martha Ward, was born 21 November 1690 in Ipswich, Massachusetts, and died there on 15 May 1763.  She was the great grand daughter of Remember Allerton (about 1614 - 1656) who was a five year old passenger on the Mayflower in 1620.

The marriage intention of Martha Tuthill and Mark Haskell was recorded on 14 January 1709/10 in Gloucester, Massachusetts.  Mark Haskell was the son of Mark Haskell (1658 - 1691) and Elizabeth Giddings.  He was born on 16 September 1687 in Gloucester, and died 25 August 1775 in Ipswich.  Mark and Martha had thirteen children born between 1710 and 1732.  I descend from their daughter, Lucy (1715 - 1789) who married Jabez Treadwell (my 6th great grandparents).
