Daniel Brewer's wife, Joanna, has acquired a surname "Morrill," daughter of Richard. This Richard Morrill is also allegedly the father of immigrants Isaac and Abraham Morrill. That would mean her son Daniel married his first cousin Isaac's daughter Hannah.

I suspect that because the father and son are Daniel and wives are Hannah/Joanna confused someone.

Anderson simply calls her Joanna____

Torrey calls her [Morrillll?] - so a maybe with a question mark. Below are the sources Torrey used. Here's the Key if someone wants to look them up. If you find something interesting in your pursuit, it's ok to add it to the profile with the source.

{Sv. 1:243; Morrill 17-18; Strong 1280; Paine (,5) 93, 102; Booth (1910) 157; Shaffer-Hunt 22; Morris 21; Morris-Converse 37; Storer 58; Seeley-Vail 70; Bassett-Preston 55; Brewer: Fellowes-Davis And.: Reg. 7:170, 11:35, 86:451}

I looked up the Savage reference, confirms Anderson:. Daniel d. 1646, named w. Joanna ________ in his will. She died 7 Feb 1689, age 87; Thus some evidence Joanna was born in 1602.  Will info should be added to profile if available.
