In Reply to: Thomas Flint and Ann Southwick by Nancy of 1557

I don't think anyone has identified Ann's maiden name.

Her first husband was Thomas Flint who died April 15, 1663 in Salem Village, Massachusetts.

On May 12, 1668, she married John Southwick (also spelled Sutherick).

She had six recorded children with Thomas, and I have no record that she had ANY childen with John. Given her age, it is unlikely.

Thomas dates are given as b. about 1600, d. April 15, 1663.

John's dates are given as 1620-October 25, 1672.

Ann's dates are given as 1620-1672.

(In other words, a lot of estimation) Source for much of this is Flint Family History of the Adventuresome Seven.

Torrey, New England marriages gives a death date (for Ann) of 1672? See Date will probated.

[Thomas Flint's will also online and in print]

John Southwick was apparently the son of Lawrence Southwick, and his wife Cassandra (also without a maiden name) Hope this helps.
