Hannah was named in husband Michael Emerson's will, made 18 July 1709.

11 July, 'in ye Eleventh yeare of His Majties Reign' (1713 per Pope, The Haverhill Emersons), Michael Emerson conveys to son John of Newbury 'all my right title and Intrest in that land & meadow land which my brother Robert,' etc., etc. After the signature, in a separate statement, is: 'I Hanna Emerson Mother to ye said John doe freely give up all my right to my sd Son of the above premises as Witness my hand. ye marke of Hanah Emerson.' 16 February 1715[/16], the witnesses gave oath, etc., '& his wife Hanah Emerson voluntary gave up her right of Dower before us.' (Essex Deeds, Vol. XXVIII)

From The Haverhill Emersons: 'June 3, 1715, "Michael Emmerson, cord wainer," his usual description, conveyed to "my grandson Michael Emerson, now about six years of age, son of my own son Joshua Emerson," 44 acres of land, adjoining land he had bought of Robert Swan, and some other lands; and he "personally appeared" before Justice Woodbridge and attested his signature November 24, 1715.'

Michael Emerson acknowledged this second deed while he was at Dover, possibly? (See Essex Deeds, Vol. XXIX)

If Hannah survived him, as is said, then she died after 24 November 1715.

Note that there are profiles for 3 daughters named Judith. They had 2 daughters by that name.
Emerson-650 is for a daughter born about 1653 and died about 1658.
Emerson-758 is for a daughter born 2 Jul 1673, and died 8 Sep 1673.
Emerson-759 is for a daughter born 29 Sep 1674, and died 7 Nov 1677.

I think that one of the other two profiles should be merged into Emerson-650.
