About Capt. William Carver's wife

From Deal, J. G., & the Dictionary of Virginia Biography. William Carver (d. 1676). (2013, August 19). In Encyclopedia Virginia. Retrieved from :

In 1667 Carver placed management of all his property in the hands of his eighteen-year-old son. His wife evidently died about that time, and he probably remarried not long thereafter to a woman whose name is unrecorded.

The governor hanged Carver and four other men within three or four days, then moved swiftly to retake Jamestown, which he achieved on September 7, 1676. The five were among the first men the governor executed. Carver's burial place is not recorded. Early in November, Berkeley ordered that Carver's property be confiscated and sold and later specifically excluded him from the proclamation of pardon issued to Bacon's lesser followers. Carver's widow reportedly died of grief shortly after he was hanged.
