There is no such person as "Martha Susanna Waters" in any record in colonial Virginia. (Repetition of the error on Ancestry doesn't make it true!) Middle names were extremely rare until much later. This apparently comes from combining two people.

Note Martha was the first wife of William Terrell (born 22 Jun 1629). They married at St. Mary's, Reading, Berks., England. No record of children or where they lived - or when Martha died. William came to America and remarried Susannah Waters and they had 10 children. Sources: Ancestry Files and LDS Records 1994 ID: 9Z4Y-WPJ
