From research by Elizabeth Foster Tilton the following: "Joseph Woodford's wife" is mentioned as one of the persons who "are in full Communion in the Church in Farmington, March 1, 1679/80," and Joseph was admitted into membership 14 March 1692/3. (source: New England Genealogical Register)In a copy of a deed found in Farmington Land Records dated 29 March 1700 from Joseph Woodford Sr. of Farmington conveying land to "my Well beloved Daughter Hannah Now ye Wife of Thomas North." The property was given "more especially for her Reward for her Love Labor & Care to her mother In her Sore and long sorrow." From this it can be assumed that Rebecca died before this document was written. (Although, it could also be that she had helped her mother thru a long and hard illness, not that she had died, and her father was rewarding her for that. jld)
