vital records sources: Her death is recorded in "Middleborough, Mass., Births, Marriages and Deaths," in The Mayflower Descendant, Vol. 5 (1903), p. 38, "the wife of Ebenezer Redding....in the 43rd year of her age," meaning she had turned 42 between 31 March 1727 and 31 March 1728, and therefore born between 1685 and 1686. This was early enough in the year that her birthday was more likely some time in 1685.
2. The births of their children are recorded in the Middleborough vital records cited above (William in Vol. 2, p. 105; Mercy, Hannah, Ebenezer in Vol. 3, p. 85; Margaret and those after her in Vol. 7, p. 241, not all have days of the month given).
