The value of his estate was 452 pounds and included 8 hives of bees and 50 pounds of hops as well as land.

Elizabeth and children moved to Springfield, MA, and on the same day as her daughter Hannah married Chilaeb SMITH, Elizabeth married William Warriner, a well-to-do widower with three children. He died intestate after they had been married for 15 years. She and WilliamÂ’s children agreed that she would have use of one third of his estate during her widowhood plus fifteen pounds. Two years later she married Joseph Baldwin of Hadley, MA.
