Was Hannah Atkinson Gee Reuben’s Second Wife ?
By most accounts, Reuben Cooke, son of William and Joan (Roper)was born sometime between the mid 1660s and mid 1670s.

If anyone has a firmer date I sure would appreciate hearing of it.
But the question of this post is whether Hannah might be Reuben’s second wife.
Reuben married Hannah sometime in 1709 or later, after her first husband Charles Gee died in that year.
That means that Reuben apparently was about 45 to 55 when he married Hannah, which seems late for a first marriage.
Does anyone have thoughts on this, or has anyone perhaps seen information that made you think some of his children were not by Hannah ?
