OF HER AGE
Although I have a plethora of ancestors from Ipswich, Massachusetts, I'm not descended from Martha Nason, nor her father Willoughby Nason. Willoughby turns out to be my 1st cousin 8 generations removed, and I descend from his uncle, John Nason (1640 - 1719). Our common ancestors are Richard Nason (1607 - 1695) and his wife Sarah, who came from England and settled at Kittery, Maine. My line stayed in Maine and New Hampshire, and so did most of Richard Nason's children except for a son Joseph who died in Nantucket. Another son, Charles Nason married Abigail Willoughby and had a son who was Willoughby Nason who removed from Maine to Ipswich.
Martha Nason was born about 1695 and died 22 May 1716 in Ipswich, Massachusetts.
For more information on this family, see the Ipswich Vital Records and the book Descendants of Willougby Nason of Ipswich, Massachusetts, by Douglas W. Chase, 2006.
