The subject of this profile, Hannah, wife of James Martin of Piscataway has, and continues to be, documented under various maiden names. The best available evidence reviewed in preparing this profile, Louis Drake's 1919 transcriptions of the Piscataway town records, gives the bride of James Martin as Hannah Smith (of Wood[bridge]).
Many family trees published on the internet instead identify the wife of James Martin under the maiden name Dunham or Durham. The claim of the Dunham maiden name has so far been traced back to a SAR application  which gives the wife of James Martin as Hannah (Dunham) Smith citing Orra Monnette's First Settlers of Ye Plantations (source not yet examined). Drake's transcriptions of the Piscataway records do not identify Hannah as a widow, which is done for many of the other records transcribed.
Hannah Smith was married to James Martin at Piscataway, New Jersey, on September 4th, 1701.

However, he could have had a daughter Hannah born after May 1679 (let's say early 1680), who would have been 21 years old when she married James Smith in 1701. Therefore, there was time for an earlier marriage and her becoming a young "widow Smith" of Woodbridge.
I thought she might be the widow of Ichabod Smith, but he died in 1722. And his wife Hannah's maiden name was not Dunham. So that seems to rule out Ichabod.
