Jane Howard1

b. 18 April 1742, d. 1816
Relationship3rd cousin 1 time removed of John Bolton
Father*Dr. Abiel Howard1 b. 1704
Mother*Silence Washburn1
Birth*18 April 1742Jane Howard was born on 18 April 1742 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).1,2
Marriage*2 June 1763She married first Ebenezer Ames, son of Joseph Ames and Susanna Littlefield, on 2 June 1763 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).1,3,4,2
(Wife) Death1 March 1779Jane became a widow when Lieutenant Ebenezer Ames "drowned himself" on 1 March 1779.1,5
Marriage*10 August 1786She married, second, widower Captain Thomas Hooper, son of William Hooper and Lois Thomas, probably shortly on 10 August 1786 when their Intention of Marriage was recorded in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts (Continental Congress). The Ames source reported that the marriage actually took place on 10 Aug 1786 in Middleborough. Nahum Mitchell, in his Bridgewater History, appears to have confused Jane (Howard) Ames, wife of Ebenezer Ames of Bridgewater and her aunt, Sarah (Howard) Ames, wife of Ebenezer Ames of Bridgewater and Easton when, he named Sarah as the "widow" who married Thomas Hooper in 1786. Mitchell, in the Howard section, stated that Jane Howard born in 1742, the daughter of Dr. Abiel Howard and his wife Silence Washburn, married Ebenezer Ames and, in the Ames section, stated that Thomas Hooper married the widow of Ebenezer Ames, Sarah Howard born in 1707, the daughter of Major Jonathan Howard and his wife Sarah Dean. Just to make it more confusing, Sarah's husband Ebenezer Ames was the uncle of Jane's husband Ebenezer Ames, corresponding beautifully with the fact that Sarah was Jane's aunt. In the Howard section of his book, only Sarah's marriage to the uncle Ebenezer Ames of Bridgewater and Easton was identified for Sarah. For Jane, in the Howard section, only her marriage to Ebenezer Ames, the nephew, was mentioned. The Hooper section did not include any mention of Thomas Hooper at all. Further research showed that only the marriage between Captain Thomas Hooper and widow Jane Ames was recorded in Bridgewater and that Sarah (Howard) Ames and her husband, the uncle Ebenezer Ames, had moved from Bridgewater to Easton, Bristol County before the birth of their last child in 1750. Sarah Ames, wife of Ebenezer Ames of Easton, died there in 1763 and didn't marry Thomas Hooper in 1786.6,7,8,9,10,11,2
(Wife) Death2 May 1789Jane became a widow again when Captain Thomas Hooper died on 2 May 1789.12
Death*1816She died late in the year of 1816 at the home of a granddaughter in Colchester, Chittenden County, Vermont.1,2
