June, 1653, three years after Bradford wrote. I find no account of her death, and no report of her marriage. And though I find no record or established proof of her marriage, I see no reason or proof to the contrary. Job Winslow, we know, married a Ruth. Can any one say her last name was not Hopkins?."
