Dear Tim,

I have continued research on the various New England ancestral lines you presented some weeks ago, and herein Include new findings since my last report. The Middlesex County Court Records Folio Collection, at the Massachusetts State Archives, has a petition(Follo 1679-86-4) from the selectmen of Reading on 12, 10mo. 1679, for power to dispose of Hanah Davise, a "wlddow woman" with minor children, "she not haveing whearewith to mainetaine her selfe but her hard labor much less to mainetaine her chlldren...she haveing bene by us warned to put her children out and free us of this truble but yet the matter is neglected..."

The Middlesex County court record book adds in 1679 that "The select men of Redding are ordered to dispose of the children of Widow Davis as the law directs.  No further record Is found of the Davises in court records. It Is obvious that Hannah probably did not inherit property, land or otherwise, from her husband or her parents. She may well have remarried after 1679, but probably not In Reading as there is no record; the IGI entries for Hannah Davises marrying In Massachusetts during the next decade might be checked for possibilities.
