She first had a child with Elisha Baker of Wellfleet, Ma. (Unmarried) child: Henry Baker b.7 Jul 1786
There is a possibility she was raised by a grandmother on Griffin's Island, Wellfleet, Ma. but the name of the grandmother is also unknown if it was true.
Anyone that has any information that could help identify the parents or grandmother would be greatly appreciated.
