About Grace Holloway
After William Halloway died, Grace married John Phillips in 1654. She was killed by lightning along with John's son Jeremiah. His elder son John had been killed by lightning eight years earlier. "The keen and widespread interest in the event recited [the death by lightning of John Phillips, Jr.in 1658]...was of course, greatly heightened by the still more remarkable and impressive disaster which again befell this family ... just eight years later, when the dwelling of Mr. Phillips, situated in the eastern part of the town of Marshfield, MA, was struck by lightning and fourteen persons therein were prostrated and overcome, three of whom were instantly killed."
