Susanna Bemis, the daughter of Joseph Bemis and Elizabeth Peirce, was born on 13 Jan 1713/14 at Watertown, Massachusetts. One early source, Draper, gives her a death date of 28 Nov 1785, but he ALSO gives that same death date to a different Susanna Bemis, who married John Viles.(Draper, Thomas Waln-Morgan ''The Bemis history and genealogy, being an account, in greater part of the descendants of Joseph Bemis, of Watertown, Mass. ..'' San Francisco, Cal. [The Stanley-Taylor co., printer] 1900. Accessed on 28 July 2018 at Archive.org.  Pages 59 and 66. Bemis History

Other sources, Bond and Peirce, give her correct birth, but neither shows any other information about this Susanna. (The Peirce Genealogy gives the birth date for Susanna and that she is the daughter of Elizabeth Peirce and Joseph Bemis, but no other information about her.(Peirce, F. C. ''Peirce Genealogy: Being the Record of the Posterity of John Pers, an Early Inhabitant of Watertown, in New England ... with Notes on the History of Other Families of Peirce, Pierce, Pearce, Etc'' Worchester : Press of C. Hamilton 1880. Accessed on 28 July 2018 at Archive.org  Page numbered 28, but actually Page 28. Peirce) Likewise, Bond only gives Susanna's birth data, but no other information.(Bond, Henry ''Genealogies of the families and descendants of the early settlers of Watertown, Massachusetts, including Waltham and Weston : to which is appended the early history of the town.''  Boston : N.E. Historic-genealogical Society, for the benefit of the "Bond fund" 1860. Accessed on 28 July 2018 at Archive.net. Page 21 Bond)

I can find no information about Susanna Bemis, daughter of Joseph, except her birth.  Can you help?
