Merging Note

In the process of merging two Abigail Hodsdon profiles, I detached Esther Wines Hodsdon as the mother. My understanding from the other records and sources on both profiles, is that Esther was Abigail's grandmother, not her mother and in fact died well before Abigail was born.

Abigail was born in 1664. She was the daughter of Benoni Hodsdon and Abigail Curtis. She passed away in 1695.
