Hannah and her daughter Mary were both drowned while on passage from Duxbury to Boston when their ship ran aground on 22 September 1722. Mary’s body was recovered five days later, on the 27th. She is buried in Myles Standish Burying Ground, Duxbury, Plymouth, Massachusetts. Hannah’s body was not found until 30 October. She was recovered near Herring Cove, Cape Cod, and was immediately buried nearby in Providencetown. [1]
