Elizabeth was born in 1670. She is the daughter of William Durkee and Martha Cross. 
Her sister, Jane married John Martin (1686), a brother of this George. Sister, Mercy, married George (1680), as his second wife.
Elizabeth was the second wife of George Martin (1648). Their intentions to marry were published in Ipswich, Massachusetts on 21 February 1712/3. 
No children are known from the marriage of George Martin and Elizabeth (Durkee) Martin.
George Martin died in Chebacco parish on 14 April 1734. Elizabeth Martin survived as his widow.
Her husband died intestate (i.e., he did not leave a will), so English law directed the distribution of the estate. His son John Martin and son-in-law John Howard were administrators. Elizabeth pleaded to the court to be ensured the one-third share of her husband's real and personal estate, for the remainder of her life, that widows were entitled to under the law. 
Elizabeth Martin died some time after her husband's estate was settled in 1734.
↑ The article "Martin-Durkee Connections" refers to her as an older sister of their daughters Jane and Mercy.

Martin-38788 and Durkee-194 do not represent the same person because: They are duplicates. I am quite sure that the person who created this profile must have seen the pop up and ignored it. Sneaky way of getting on the profile manager list.
