William FOX, b1742 Woburn, and 2 wives, Abigail WYMAN and Mary WRIGHT
I've been working on my HUTCHINSON ancestors all day.These are the descendants of patriarch, George, of Charlestown.And, they were all of Charlestown, then Woburn, then Winchester, MA.
There has always been confusion of my ancestor, John HUTCHINSON, b1745 of Charlestown, and how many times he married.Some say twice, some say 3 times.After looking on-line today and seeing all the information now available on-line, I think I figured out his family.
In May 1772 in West Cambridge, MA (now Arlington) he married Sarah FROST.John and Sarah had 8 children, but she died in childbirth with the 8th in 1790, and the infant also died.Then in 1793 he remarried to widow, Mrs. Mary (WRIGHT) FOX.I don't know what happened to her, but he remarried for a 3rd time in 1818 to Martha HASTINGS.Then he died a year later.
An on-line book has William FOX, b1742, Woburn, having 2 wives:In 1765 he married Abigail WYMAN, who died in 1771.Then in 1772 he married Mary WRIGHT.(She is said to have married John HUTCHINSON in 1793.)
I can't find any other information on this William FOX, and I wonder whether he had children.
Part of my question is whether Mrs. Mary FOX had children or step-children from her FOX marriage -- that she brought to her marriage with John HUTCHINSON, who then had 7 children.
