Widow Coleman may have been too old to have been the mother of Jared b 1728, and his birth record has his mother as "Mercy."

Perhaps Hannah, widow Coleman was a 2nd wife of Nathaniel Foote, and he married 3rd (1727) to Mary "Mercy", widow Hancock, who was the mother of Jared and the woman who was buried in Colchester in 1765.
