She married second to Robert Haskell in April 1735 in Ipswich ( marriage intentions filed in Beverly on 14 March 1724/5).
Robert Haskell was born 17 February 1694 in Beverly, the son of William Haskell and Ruth West. Ruth is my 8th great aunt, and I descend from her sister, Mary West (1676 - 1758) who married Robert Woodbury. Robert Haskell was a Captain in the local militia, not a sea captain.
