Did Alice (--) Bouton Marvin Have a Husband Hayes?

+7 votes
Through various merges, Alice Unknown, wife of John Bouton and Matthew Marvin, has acquired third husband, Nathaniel Hayes, born about 1600 in England and died in 1694.

Alice was born about 1610 (based on age 70 in 1680), and first married John Bouton.  When she married Matthew Marvin in 1645, she was the widow Bouton.  Marvin died in 1680.  Alice made her Will in December 1680 and died soon thereafter.  In her Will, Alice refers to herself as Alice Marvin.

Is there evidence for a third marriage for Alice (Unknown) to Nathaniel Hayes?  As she was widow Bouton in 1645 and Alice Marvin in 1680, it would have to have been before her marriage to Bouton, but then there would have been a divorce, as Nathaniel Hayes didn't die until 1694.

I'll see what's available on Nathaniel Hayes...
I can't find anything this morning about the immigrant Nathaniel Hayes. I must be losing my grip.

More digging. One source for the Nathaniel Hayes connection appears to be this Worldconnect gedcom:


While it discusses research related to Alice, it provides hardly anything supporting the claim to Nathaniel Hayes, just saying there's a rumor out there that Alice was first married to him.

But there's a bunch of other conflicting stuff as well.

There are several public family trees on ancestry.com that also claim she was first married to Nathaniel Hayes.

What I find odd is that what I do find mostly on Nathaniel Hayes, is more about his son by the same name.

Makes me wonder if the father is a figment of someone's imagination...
