She was married to an Unknown Baker, sometime before 4 November 1693, when she signed a document in her father's estate as Elizabeth Baker. She had a son, John Baker, born about 1680, estimated from his 17 January 1703/4 marriage, as well as a deed he signed 23 March 1707/8. On September 17 1693, Elizabeth "'Waterhouse owned ye Covt & baptized Elizabeth And her son John per a baptismal record of that date of the First Church of New London.
She married second, Peter Hackley 31 August 1699 in New London. She died 12 March 1736 in Niantic (Lyme), New London County.
In 1704 she received, as Elizabeth Hackley, distributions from the estates of her three deceased brothers. On 3 June 1705, her son Peter was baptized. She died before 23 March 1707/8, the date her husband Peter and son John began selling property belonging to her.
Often it is suggested that John was her first husbands given name; however, the source noted in the first paragraph of this biography says that "Mr. Baker's first name is not known and his identity is not clear." It is not the intent of this writer Parish-940 to follow this matter any deeper.
It's been reported that Elizabeth was a direct ancestor of Ethan Allen. That statement is based on confusion with her son John, and John, the son of Joshua Baker, who was also of New London, Connecticut. Its possible that Elizabeth's first husband was Joshua's brother, John, but no direct evidence to support that has been found.
