Bethiah Rich, the 4th child of Thomas and Thankful Mayo Rich, married Reuben Cook, 7 Oct 1725 in Eastham, Barnstable, MA.  They had 13 children, the last was John Hatch who was baptized in Middletown, CT on 24 Mar 1776.

I have not been able to find death records for either Reuben or Bethiah Cook. Any hints would be most appreciated.

Are you sure about those dates? That would mean they would have been married 51 years when their last child was born, making them somewhere around 65+ yrs old when having that last child...?

This unsourced profile puts their marriage date at 1757.

Bethiah (Rich) Cook

The records of the Mass Births & Christenings shows her birth date as 22 July 1733. The marriage date of 14 Apr 1757 is in the CT church records, vol 27 for East Hampton. The birth record is assumed from the baptism date of 24 Mar 1776, but it does indicate that these records were added after the fact.
Excellent! Would you mind adding that data to her profile? I'll do some more digging in my end in the next few days to see what I can shake loose.
