'A Mr, Thomas Reynolds was given money by the town to take care of "Widow Pickle & a boy Richard Pickle....'
I was under the impression that Hannah's maiden name was Pickle. The introduction of her sonRichard 'Pickle' and the above reference to her having been ' Widow Pickle' points clearly to the fact that Hannah was only a 'Pickle' through a marriage previous to her involvement with Joseph Hayden. I will therefore cease to search for a Hannah Pickle, and concentrate on Hannah's who married Pickles. Is that correct then?
