John Bishop, for fifty years pastor in Stamford, Conn.* He was a few years her junior, a widower with several grown-up children, and with him she lived until her death. Neither the date of this marriage, nor of her death, nor of the place of her burial is known. In a letter from Rev. John Bishop to Increase Mather, written in 1681, he sends his "Greetings" and those of his wife, "who was Mrs. Willet, to good Mrs. Mather."
