Notes for ??? (Spouse 1)
It is possible to speculate that her name was Dorcas, as John and Anne's first child, a daughter, was named that, and it is not uncommon to name a daughter after a previous wife, especially if she had died young or in complications from childbirth. The dates involved seem to support that. It would be useful to check on the occurence of the name "Dorcas" in the families of John Hayward and Anne Carpenter to double-check this speculation. [MAH]
