Rebecca Pabodie was born on 16 Oct 1660 in Duxbury, Plymouth, Massachusetts. Her parents were Elizabeth (Alden) and William Pabodie. A duplicate record lists her name as Deborah.[1]

Rebecca was married about 1680 in Duxbury, Plymouth, Massachusetts to William Southworth.[2] The marriage was not recorded in the Duxbury Vital Records. Nine children were born to them while they were residing at Little Compton, Newport County, Rhode Island:[3]

  1. Benjamin Southworth, b: 18 Apr 1681
  2. Joseph Southworth, b: 01 Feb 1683; d: 20 Apr 1739
  3. Edward Southworth, b: 23 Nov 1684
  4. Elizabeth Southworth, b: 23 Sep 1686
  5. Alice Southworth, b: 14 July 1688
  6. Samuel Southworth, b: 26 Dec 1690
  7. Nathaniel Southworth, b: 31 Oct 1692
  8. Thomas Southworth, b: 13 Dec 1694
  9. Stephen Southworth, b: 31 Mar 1698

Rebecca passed away on 23 Dec 1702 in Little Compton, Newport County, Rhode Island,[3] and was buried there at Old Commons Burial Ground[4] with the gravestone inscription ... "Here lyeth interred the body of Rebeka, the wife of Captain William Southworth who departed this life Dec ye 25th in the 43d year of her age, 1702".[5]

The printed vital records and her tombstone disagree on her death date by 2 days.

Rebecca's widowed husband William remarried and had two more children by his second wife:[3]

  1. Gideon Southworth, b: 21 Mar 1707
  2. Andrew Southworth, b: 12 Dec 1709

William Southworth died on 25 Jun 1719.[3]
