Zerviah Dewey was born March 1, 1708 at Westfield, Massachusetts. She was the daughter of Jedediah Dewey and Rebecca Williams.[1]

Zerviah married twice:

  1. Her first marriage was to Solomon Noble in Westfield on May 17, 1747.[2]
  2. She married Joseph Fuller as his second wife on January 8, 1766, in New Milford, Connecticut.[3]

Based upon information from their memorials and other sources, Zerviah probably passed away before her second husband died on July 19, 1775. Records mentioning his death make no mention of Zerviah and Joseph was buried by his first wife, Lydia Day, the mother of all his children:[4]

  • Her memorial on FindAGrave mentions that Zerviah "was living as late at March 19, 1770 (husband's will)." However, the memorial of her second husband, Joseph Fuller, states that he passed away on July, 16, 1775 and shows a marker inscribed with that date of death. His memorial also includes a bio compiled from sources by Steve Fowler: "... He probably left no will. However, he made several deed gifts of land to his sons about 1757-1760, as shown in Kent land records. Deacon Joseph Fuller and his first wife Lydia were buried in North Kent." His second wife, Zerviah, has conflicting information listed on her memorial without citing sources memorial page for:
  • Her death occurred in the USA on 19 Jul 1775 which was the same day that her second husband, Joseph, died in Kent, Litchfield County, Connecticut.
  • Her burial date/location is unknown but Joseph's burial information is known and marker has this inscription recorded on his memorial: "In memory of Deacon Joseph Fuller who died July ye 19th 1775 aged 75".
