About Joanna Rockwood

Kevin Avery noted (16 June 2010):

Her origins are unknown to me at this time. It has been suggested that her parents may have been William Ford and Anna ?Eames? Ford of Marshfield,MA, but I am not positive. Duplicate memorials for William and Anna currently appear here and here, and further research is needed to establish the possible relationship.

Children: John Rockwood Jr, Priscilla Rockwood Corbett, Johannah Rockwood Cook, Anna Rockwood Darling(second wife of John Darling), Joseph Rockwood, Mercy Rockwood Thayer, Trial Rockwood Hayward, and Deliverance Rockwood.
