Birth*25 April 1697Hannah Bacon was born on 25 April 1697 in Wrentham, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).1
Marriage*13 December 1717She married Robert Pond, son of Robert Pond and Joanna ______, on 13 December 1717 in Boston. They were both of Wrentham and were married by Samuel Checkley Esq., Justice of the Peace.1,2,3
(Wife) Deathbefore 9 January 1722/23Hannah became a widow when Robert Pond died before 9 January 1722/23.4,1
Marriage*22 January 1722/23She married second, as his second wife, Nathaniel Wight, son of Joseph Wight and Mary Stearns, on 22 January 1722/23 in Wrentham.5,4,1
Research Notes*The Daniel Pond source speculated that a different Hannah Pond, daughter of John Pond, was "probably" the Hannah who married Nathaniel Wight of Wrentham on 9 January 1722. Our research indicates however that it was Hannah (Bacon) Pond, the widow of the other Hannah's first cousin Robert Pond, who married Nathaniel Wight. Additionally, our research led us to the marriage of what we believe to have been the marriage of the other Hannah Pond to Joseph Fales on 3 December 1718.6
Death*3 October 1754She died on 3 October 1754 in Wrentham at age 57.7,8

b. 23 August 1667, d. 10 April 1749
Father*John Bacon3 d. 17 Jun 1683
Mother*Rebecca Hall3 d. 27 Oct 1694
Birth*23 August 1667Thomas Bacon was born on 23 August 1667 in Dedham, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England).2
Marriage*22 January 1691He married first Hannah Fales, daughter of James Fales and Anne Brock, on 22 January 1691 in Wrentham, Suffolk County.4,2,5
(Husband) Death20 April 1711Thomas became a widower when Hannah (Fales) Bacon died on 20 April 1711.4,2
Marriage3 October 1711He married second, as her second husband, Esther (Clark) Thurston, daughter of Joseph Clark and Mary Allen, on 3 October 1711 in Wrentham, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).6,5,7
Research Opinion* Esther (Clark) Thurston married Thomas Bacon the father, and not Thomas Bacon the son. That's our conclusion, based upon our process of data collection and analysis. The Bacon Genealogy reported that Thomas Bacon (1693-1784), son of Thomas Bacon (1667-1749), married Esther Thurston on 03 October 1711, and many additional sources have copied, recopied, and published that information in a variety of formats, including online. The Thurston Genealogies reported that Esther's maiden name was "probably" Clark. Torrey's New England Marriages Prior to 1700 reported the marriage of Thomas Thurston and Esther Clark on 15 June 1693, and also identified his marriage to Esther as Thomas Thurston's second marriage. And, finally, Suffolk County probate documents presented by Esther Bacon on 18 July 1713 confirmed for us that Esther was formerly the "widow and still Administratrix to the estate of her late husband, Thomas Thurston, of Wrentham deceased." In creating our timeline, Thomas Thurston and Esther Clark were married on 15 June 1693 and had six children together before his death on 15 December 1704. At the time of their marriage in 1693, Thomas Thurston was a widower with two surviving children from his first marriage, so at the time of his death in 1704, his widow, Esther (Clark) Thurston, was left with a total of eight children, his and theirs. The Thurston Genealogies reported that Esther next married Thomas Bacon, as her second husband, on 03 October 1711 and, as noted earlier, the Bacon Genealogy identified her husband as Thomas Bacon, the son, who was 17 years of age on 03 October 1711, the date of the Esther Thurston-Thomas Bacon marriage. Thomas' father, Thomas Bacon, however, had been left with six children, five of them under the age of 10, when he was widowed on 20 April 1711, six months before the date of the 03 October 1711 Thomas Bacon-Esther Thurston marriage. As these pieces of the puzzle came together, we concluded that Thomas Bacon, the son, was too young to have been Esther's husband and assume responsibility for her eight children, and that Esther (Clark) Thurston married Thomas Bacon, the father, and they together provided a home for their combined family of fourteen children. They added one more daughter of their own before Esther's death.8,9,10,11
(Husband) Death1 August 1713Thomas became a widower for the second time when Esther (Clark) Thurston Bacon died on 1 August 1713.6,12,13
Marriage*He may have married third Deborah (Hawes) Pond, daughter of Edward Hawes and Eliony Lumber. No record of their marriage has yet been found. The Edward Hawes source reported the name of Deborah (Hawes) Pond's second husband as just Thomas Bacon, with no source information, parents, previous wife or date of birth. The Daniel Pond source simply noted that after Ephraim's death, Deborah married "a Bacon". Our research indicates that Thomas Bacon, whose first wife Hannah Fales had died in 1711, and fourth marriage occurred after the date of Deborah's death, is the most likely candidate to select as the Thomas Bacon who may have been Deborah's second husband.14,15,2,4,16
(Husband) Deathcirca 1737Thomas became a widower for the third time when Deborah (Hawes) Pond Bacon died circa 1737.17
Marriage*16 July 1746He married fourth, as her third husband, Mary (Wheelock) Ware Fisher, daughter of Benjamin Wheelock and Elizabeth Bullin, on 16 July 1746 in Wrentham.1,5,2
Death*10 April 1749He died on 10 April 1749 in Wrentham at age 81.2
