Patty Martha (Bierce) Judd, wife of Nathaniel Judd, died November 6, 1843 at 76 years old.[1]

If Patty Martha is truly connected to the correct parents, then she is the descendant of about 12 Mayflower passengers.

The births of four children are recorded to Hezekiah and Deborah (also spelled Deborough) in the Halifax Vital Records (p.39 / p.316):[2]

William Bearce, b. 26 March 1753
Fear Bearce, b. 1 March 1755
Ruth, b. 1 February 1757
James Bearce, b. 5 March 1760

No further births of children of Hezekiah and Deborah are recorded in Halifax, so they presumably left there in the early 1760s. They are known to have had other children, however, as the transcript of William Bierce's Family Bible lists Hezekiah's sons:[3]

William Bierce, born at Plymouth, Mass., Mar. 26, 1753
James, born March 5, 1760
Hezekiah Jr born April 26, 1765
Philo born Sept 12, 1769
Zenas born May 30, 1776

Clearly there are significant gaps between the birth years of the boys, and the Family Bible does not list the two known daughters of Hezekiah (Fear and Ruth) born at Halifax, so it is reasonable to assume that there were some younger girls in the family too. Family Search Ancestral File shows daughters Patty Martha, born 1772, and Deborah, born 1774, both at Cornwall, and there may have been others, perhaps born about 1763 and 1770 to fill in the gaps.[4]
