About Abigail Lothrop (Doane)

Abigail Doane was born about 1631 and died in Norwich, Connecticut on January 23, 1734/5. Her burial place is unknown. She married Samuel Lothrop as his 2nd wife in the early 1690s, but had no children. He died about 1700.

notes

She went with her father's family in 1645 from Plymouth to Nauset, or Eastham, where she lived about 45 years. Her name appears several times on Eastham records as the owner of horses.

May 6, 1672, sold and delivered according to a Court Order by Abigail Doane, to an Indian called Moses, one bay horse, ear marked two slits, a star in the forehead, a little white streak over the left nostril, burn marked E on the near buttock. Eastham town record.

On her 100th birthday, an audience of her neighbours and church people assembled in her rooms at Norwhich, wehre a sermon was preached by her pastor, the Rev. Benjamin Lord. At this time, it is claimed, she retained to a remarkable degree the intelligence and vivacity of her earlier years.

Will of John Doane

In his will dated May 18, 1678, inventory taken May 21, 1686 and sworn by Abigail Doane May 29, 1686, he named his "loving wife," daughter Abigail, sons John, Daniel and Ephraim, and granddaughter Margaret Hicks, and left the remainder of his estate to "all my sons and daughters". He described himself in the will as "aged eighty and eight or there about" and in the inventory he was said to have died February 21, 1685/86, "aged about a hundred years" - a typical overstatement of age which occurred in those times.
