1. Martha Fairbank(s) married Oliver Death in Sherborn on April 17, 1697.
Martha and Oliver settled in Framingham, which was carved out of Sherborn around 1700.
Martha and Oliver had, in Framingham: 
Oliver died, in Framingham, on March 3, 1704-5
2. The widowed Martha Fairbank(s) Death married Ebenezer Lealand in Sherborn on January 19, 1707-8
Martha and Ebenezer had, in Sherborn: 
Martha Fairbank(s) Death Lealand is said to have died on 03 APR 1754, in Sherborn, Middlesex, Massachusetts Bay Province
Indications are that Martha Fairbank(s) had a first husband, Oliver Death with whom she may have had three children, Oliver, Caleb (died young), and John. With second husband, it appears she had three children as well, Deborah, Caleb (named in honor of half-brother who passed, became a Capt.), and Lydia. The Ancestry of Robert Roy shows Crane, Ellery Bicknell, Historic Homes and Institutions and Genealogical and Personal Memoirs of Worcester County, Massachusetts. New York: The Lewis Publishing Co., 1907, as their source for this information. Upon checking this source, I have found one instance of the name Martha Fairbanks, of Sherborn, Massachusetts, in Volume 4, page 188:
That may indicate a third husband, as one WikiTree contributor suggested . But, much more likely, that Martha was the daughter born Aug. 2, 1724 to Eleazer Fairbank Jr. and his wife Martha Bullard. That Martha Fairbank(s) was 17 in September 1741, when a Martha Fairbanks is recorded in Sherborn vital records as having married (24-year-old) Benjamin in Watertown. Their first child Bette was born on Jan. 15, 1741/2, just three months after their marriage. Seventeen was early for a marriage in those times, but it is not difficult to see why this marriage occurred when it did.
