Needs to be rechecked has been as of 15 April 2016 and conclusions are:.

Ancestral File (TM). AFN 8MFR-BG gives that she married Stephen Bartlett;

AFN 22B5-4L gives that she married John EMery Jr. -

Believe this in due to miss-reading and miss-interpetation of "Michael Emerson married April 1, 1657, Hannah, daughter of John and Mary (Satchwell) Webster. Her father was an early settler at Ipswich and a valuable citizen; after his death Mrs. Webster married second, John Emery. She had three brothers, Satchwells, who came to the same plantation and proved worthy men."

Ancestry and Genealogy of Thomas Grover. by Joel P. Grover 1959

Michael Emerson, b. abt 1625, England; came to America abt 1650, and settled in Haverhill, Mass., early in 1657. He M. - 1 April 1657, at Haverhill, Mass., Hannah Webster, (b. abt 1635, nr. Newberry, Mass.; d- after 1709, at Haverhill, Mass.; da. of John and Mary (Satchwell) Webster, of Newberry).

Michael was a 'cordwainer', or shoemaker, and lived his days out, at Haverhill. His first child, Hannah, married Thomas Duston, and was the heroic woman of the "Dustin Massacre" at Haverhill, 15 March 1697, being taken prisoner by the Indians and dragged off towards Canada, then making her escape just 45 days later, coming back to the frontier settlements with ten Indian scalps as proof of the deed, and collected bounty moneys for these scalps. (-ref. - "History of Haverhill, Mass.")

Hannah, b. 23 Dec. 1657, Haverhill, Mass.; 

1 MICHAEL1 EMERSON (Thomas), of Rowley and Haverhill, "cordwinder"; bp. 1627, in Cadney, Co. Lincoln, England; m. Apr. 1, 1657[Hv], (17) HANNAH2 WEBSTER. "Mihill" Emerson was a witness in the Ipswich Quarterly Court in a Rowley case, Sept., 1651. His name, spelled both "Myghill" and "Michael," appears again in that court in July, 1657.(*) He received land in Hv. in the "fourth division," Feb., 1661; and his name appears in the Old Norfolk Co. deeds as owning land in Hv. in 1659 and 1667, buying and selling real estate, 1672-3 and later. In 1675 he was chosen "to view and seal all leather," probably the first one to hold that office in that town; and he continued to hold it till 1702. Will, July 18, 1709; not proved; ment. wife Hannah. Both were living in 1715, when he was 88 y. old; but he was dead in 1719.(+)

Michael Emerson married April 1, 1657, Hannah, daughter of John and Mary (Satchwell) Webster. Her father was an early settler at Ipswich and a valuable citizen; after his death Mrs. Webster married second, John Emery. She had three brothers, Satchwells, who came to the same plantation and proved worthy men.

Mrs. Hannah (Webster) Emerson had no holiday life; what with the cares of a large family, the waywardness of one child, another daughter's dreadful experiences, and the inevitable difficulties of pioneer life, she had heavy burdens; but she bore all well and left a name for worthy living. She survived her husband, but the time of her death is not known to us
