Rebecca Nurse's Daughter Mary m. Tarbell?

Rebecca Nurse's Daughter Mary m. Tarbell?

Surnames: Nurse
Wondered if anyone on the list might be able to fill be in on the descendents of Rebecca Nurse (hung in Salem for witch craft) in particular her daughter Mary. Believe Mary was married to a Tarbell?

My question is does Mary linage include a marriage between an Anne Tarbell and a Samuel Hartwell at some point?

If it does I would love to hear about it.
Thanks for the help.

Rebecca TOWNE was baptized at the St. Nicholas church in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England on 21 Feb 1620/21 and was the daughter of William and Joanna (BLESSING) TOWNE. You have "BLESSING" listed as a middle name for Rebecca, which is incorrect. This was her mother's maiden name.

Rebecca married Francis NURSE about 1644 (there is no evidence to support the exact date of "Aug. 24, 1644"), probably in Salem and they had eight children (not ten, as you have it):

1. John, b. ca. 1645
2. Rebecca, b. ca. 1647
3. Samuel, b. ca. 1649
4. Sarah, b. ca. 1651
5. Mary, b. ca. 1659
6. Francis, b. 3 Feb 1660/61
7. Elizabeth, b. ca. 1663
8. Benjamin, b. 26 Jan 1665/66

John D. AMES includes exact dates of birth for several of the children listed above in his article on the NURSE family which appeared in Putnam's Historical Monthly Magazine over 100 years ago. There is no evidence to support many of these exact dates and places, so be careful when you are using that information (or the mountain of other information which is based upon that early work).

Surnames: Nurse Tarbell Kneeland
Thanks Kaitlin for responding. Would love to hear more on the desendents of Mary and John Tarbell.

My 3rd Great Grandmother was Lydia Kneeland b. Nov 2 1788 Sturbridge MA. There was a book written in 1877 called the "Seven Centuries in the Kneeland Family " in regards to Lydia's parents it reads "Joseph Kneeland (11/22/1752, Harvard, MA - 1828, Hartford, VT) and Ruth Hartwell (daughter of Samuel Hartwell and Anna Tarbell, and great-granddaughter of Rebecca Nurse who was hung in Salem in 1717 for witchcraft)."

I have tired to work Ruth Hartwell and her mother Anna Tarbell back to Rebecca Nurse without success. Do you have any info on a Anna Tarbell who married a Samuel Hartwell?

Thanks for any help or suggestions you may have.

Carol
