Biography

Margaret Cogswell was baptized at the Chebacco Parish Church on 23 Oct 1726, in Ipswich, Essex County, Province of Massachusetts Bay. She was the daughter of Gifford Cogswell and Sarah Parsons.[1]

Margaret married William Goldsmith of Wenham, the son of Zacheus Goldsmith, Jr., and Tabitha Dodge, on 11 Apr 1745, at the Chebacco Parish Church, in Ipswich.[2]

Margaret and William resided in Ipswich and were part of the Chebacco Parish community. They had five children baptized at the Chebacco Parish Church:

  • Gifford Goldsmith (bp. 27 Apr 1746, Chebacco Parish Church)[3]
  • William Goldsmith (bp. 31 Jul 1748, Chebacco Parish Church;[4] d. before 9 Feb 1751/2)
  • Tabitha Goldsmith (bp. 30 Jul 1749, Chebacco Parish Church)[5]
  • William Goldsmith (bp. 9 Feb 1751/2, Chebacco Parish Church)[6]
  • Margaret Goldsmith (bp. 24 Feb 1754, Chebacco Parish Church)[7]

Margaret Cogswell Goldsmith may have died in 1754, since, on 23 Oct 1754, William Goldsmith signed Guardianship Bond for his daughter, Tabitha,[8] his son, Jefford,[9] his son, William,[10] and his daughter, Margaret, [11] each described as "a Minor under 14 years of age." His sureties for all four bonds were John [? Fitts], Jr., a Tanner of Ipswich, and Zaccheus Goldsmith, a gentleman of Wenham. This may also be the reason William Goldsmith submitted an accounting of Margaret's father's estate, for which he had been executor, on 25 Oct 1754.[12]
