Biography

Rebecca Ashley, daughter of David Ashley and Hannah (Glover) Ashley, was born on May 30, 1685 in Westfield, Massachusetts.[1][2] She was baptized in Westfield on May 31, 1685.[2]

Rebecca married Samuel Dewey of Westfield. She was his second wife. No record of their marriage has been found. Basedon the date of birth of their first known child, they were probably married in 1712. Since they were both residents of Westfield and had their children there, they were no doubt married there.

Rebecca and Samuel had the the following children, all born in Westfield:

  1. Meriam, b. May 14, 1713[3][4]
  2. Jerusha, bpt. June 18, 1715[5][4] m. November 11, 1742 Joseph Hanmor/Marmon at Sheffield[4]

I connected her to David and Hannah Ashley as parents and built out a sourced bio for her in Ashley-1168. She was not a daughter of Edward Ashley (Ashley-1639)

Ashley-3425 and Ashley-1168 appear to represent the same person because: clear duplicate. I attached the correct parents to Ashley-3425
