Elizabeth's life got interesting after she remarried, from http://www.greatmemories.info/noble/noblines.pdf :

The inventory of Robert Hinsdale's estate was taken October 22, 1676. His son, Ephraim, was surety for the widow Elizabeth. Deacon Robert Hinsdale married as his first wife, probably in England, Ann Woodward, daughter or Petter Woodward of Dedham, By whom he had six sons and two daughters, probably all born in Dedham. She was a sensitive and timid woman, and fainted away on making profession of her faith before the church at Dedham June 2, 1639. The Puritan method of admission to church membership was by public profession of faith and confession of sin before the congregation, an ordeal trying to the timid and now fortunately obsolete. The church records relate: "The wife of our brother Hinsdale being fearful and not able to speak in publike, but fainting awayhere, coming to church in private gave good satisfaction; which being publickly testified and declared, and she confirming the same relation to be so, was received." She died June 4, 1666, and he married, second, about 1668, Elizabeth, widow of John Haeks of Hadley, by whom he had no issue, She was a woman of different mold from Ann. The union did not prove a happy one and they soon parted. At the court held March 30, 1674, they were "presented for living asunder contrary to law," also charged "with lascivious and wanton carrage;" on the examination, she refused to answer and appears to have got off clear; he said the "did it as being her head and having the rule of her in the Pointe and that he did it for her correction or her disorder towards him." The court held he had "broken the Perfect rule of divine law Mal. 2:16; Matt. 19:6; and 1 Peter 3: 7 & the law of the Colony in the intent if not in the letter in the first living asunder, and ordered him "whipped ten stripes on the naked body: and imposed a fine for which his sons became responsible and which the court refused to remit after his tragic death. On June 25, 1683, his widow Elizabeth married Thomas Dibble of Windsor, Conn., and died September 25, 1689. Genealogical Line: Robert Hinsdale and Ann Woodward; Samuel Hinsdale and Mehitable Johnson; Ann hinsdale and Martin Kellogg; Martin Kellogg and Dorothy Chester; Rebecca Kellogg and Gamaliel Deming; Sarah Deming and Joseph Bates; Theodocea Bates and Ezekiel Noble.

John's wife, Elizabeth Browne, was a niece of Nathaniel Ward, an original settler of Hartford, CT. Nathaniel Ward was the son of Edward Ward of Little Wrathing, Suffolk Co., England. On 9 Jan 1620, Edward made his will, proved at Ipswich 7 Mar 1620. He provided for his wife Judith and his children Nathaniel, Edward, Lydia, Mary, Rebecca and Susan.

Susan Browne, widow of Robert Browne of Ipswich, made her will 22 Mar 1626, proved 24 April 1627. She remembered her mother Judith and both of her sisters, Rebecca Ward and Mary Cutting, as well as "Elizabeth Browne, daughter of my borther-in-law William Browne." As Lydia Ward was the fourth sister, it was she who married William Browne and their daughter Elizabeth was the niece of Nathaniel Ward (of Hartford).
