Happy 330th Birthday, Grandmother White!

330 years ago on 7 October 1690, in Tauton, Bristol Co, Massachusetts, my 7th great grandmother, Abigail Crossman was born to John and Joanna Thayer Crosman. About 1711, Abigail married Thomas White, in Tauton. I only have record of two of their children, but knowing the times, I would imagine there were more.

They had a daughter, Abigail (not too original in the naming), and a son, Nathaniel, who was born around 1719, still in Tauton.

Nathaniel was the father of Nathaniel, Jr. who fought in the American Revolutionary Army and was the father of Prudence who married Laban Jenks which joined with that family line.

Grandfather White died in 1730, leaving Grandmother to raise the children and support herself. I have found no record of her marrying a second time. Grandmother died 22 January 1767, still in Tauton where she had lived her entire life.
