I have found mention of other children of Edward Aldrich and Ann Chamberlain.Note, please, that this is a transcription of a transcription of the Rix manuscript, published about 1912, and that reference to the original can be found at the Lisbon, New Hampshire site, part of USGenWeb, at http://www.geocities.com/Yosemite/2821/lisbon.htmhttp://www.geocities.com/Yosemite/2821/lisbon.htm
This part of the transcript was sent to me by a member of the Aldrich Family Association.It says, in part:
"Edward Aldrich, son of David, was born in Mendon, Mass. Sept. 7, 1713; married July 17, 1732 Dinah Aldrich, born in Mendon Apr. 23, 1717, daughter of Seth by his second wife Mary. He married second, widow Ann Chamberlain. He lived at first in Mendon, where he had five children born, then removed to Douglas, Mass., where his other children were born and recorded on the town books. About 1785 he came to Franconia [NH] from Richmond. His sons Rue and John had come to Lisbon in 1780, and gave such glowing accounts of the country that induced their father to cometo Franconia where his son John had settled. Mr. Aldrich died in Franconia in 1801. His children were, Dinah, Hannah, Edward, Jonathan, Sarah, and the following were recorded in Douglas, viz, Oliver, b. May 3, 1744, Abner, b. Apr. 8, 1748, Abigail, b. Apr. 10, 1751, Zacheus, Mar. 13, 1755, Esther b. Mar. 26, 1756, Isabel, b. Mar. 19, 1758, and children by second wife were, Rue, b. Jan. 10, 1762, Ann, b. Aug. 21, 1763, Joab, b. July 24, 1765, John b. Apr. 22, 1766, Lydia b. Mar. 1, 1760, David, b. Sept.
25, 1771, Jethrow, b. June 3, 1773 and Olive, b. May 15, 1767."
Mr. Rix did not give the births in chronological order, and he assigned John's birth date to Joab, so either the manuscript or the transcription of it has flaws.
The manuscript post-dates Edward Aldrich's arrival in NH by at least 100 years and does not (to my knowledge) make note of sources.
Ann Chamberlain's first husband was surnamed Coates and she did receive an inheritance from him.Although I have found no record of the marriage of Edward and Ann, one may safely assume that it was after the death of husband Coates and before the birth of eldest son Rue Jan. 10, 1762, in Douglas.
I keep on hunting...perhaps I can find the Coates Probate Record.
