Name VariationShe was also called Bettie, which was spelled in the records as both Bettie and Betty.
Marriage*circa 1749She married Ebenezer Snow Jr., son of Ebenezer Snow and Sarah Pratt, circa 1749 probably in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).3
(Wife) Will9 March 1807Elizabeth (Hooper) Snow was named as a beneficiary in the will of her husband Ebenezer Snow dated 9 March 1807 in Raynham, Bristol County, Massachusetts. The will named his son Ebenezer his Executor and made the following bequests: to his beloved wife Elizabeth, during her life, he gave the use of the easterly front room in his dwelling house along with a "decent annual maintenance" to be provided by his son Ebenezer; to his son Ebenezer, his heirs and assigns forever, he gave all his real and personal estate of whatever name or nature forever, and instructed Ebenezer to pay all the debts, funeral charges and other bequests named in the will; to each of his three daughters, Sarah Hall, Betsey Warren and Zilpah Bolton, he gave $20, and to his grandson Nathan Snow, he gave $1, stating again that all were to be paid by his son Ebenezer.5,6
(Wife) Deathbetween 9 March 1807 and 1 January 1811Elizabeth became a widow when Ebenezer Snow died between 9 March 1807 and 1 January 1811.1,3,5,6
(Heir) Probate1 January 1811In addition to a copy of her husband's will, the only other document in the probate packet for her husband's estate was dated 1 January 1811 at Raynham, Bristol County, Massachusetts. The will officially approved on that date, his son and Executor, Ebenezer Snow Jr., along with Jonathan Shaw, Esq. and Seth Hall, Gentleman, agreed to pay the sum of $5,000 to the Judge of the Probate and Wills. The condition of the obligation was that Ebenezer Snow Jr. agreed as Executor to assume and pay all the debts and legacies of his father, Ebenezer Snow. The document appears to imply that all recipients named in the will were still living on 1 Jan 1811.6
Death*after 1 January 1811She died after 1 January 1811.1,5,6

Elizabeth Hooper1

b. 8 July 1689
Father*William Hooper1 b. 3 Nov 1658, d. 8 Aug 1692
Mother*Susanna Shed1 b. 28 Dec 1662
(Daughter) Relationship NoteMitchell's 1840 Bridgewater History speculated that sisters Elizabeth Hooper and Ruth Hooper might have been the sisters of John Hooper. At the time this was likely a logical guess since Elizabeth and Ruth both appeared in Bridgewater as young women and not long after John's purchase of land there. Later research has confirmed to our satisfaction that they were actually the nieces of John Hooper of Bridgewater and the daughters of John's brother William Hooper of Reading who had died a few years before.1,2
Birth*8 July 1689Elizabeth Hooper was born on 8 July 1689.1
Marriage*12 February 1706/7She married Enoch Leonard, son of John Leonard and Sarah ______, on 12 February 1706/7 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).3,1,4
Research Notes*23 November 1720 Mitchell's Bridgewater History incorrectly, in this researcher's opinion, stated that Elizabeth (Hooper) Leonard, the widow of Enoch Leonard, married second in 1720 James Washburn Jr. who actually married another Elizabeth Leonard, daughter of Josiah and Marjoram Leonard, in Bridgewater on 23 November 1720.5
(Wife) Deathbetween 16 September 1757 and 19 October 1757Elizabeth became a widow when Enoch Leonard died between 16 September 1757 and 19 October 1757.3
Will*19 October 1757There is a will of Enoch Leonard of Mendum, Morris County, New Jersey, signed on 16 September 1757, probated on 19 October 1757, leaving to wife Elizabeth "all my estate in New England". It names grandson John Arnold, who was not of age, and appointed Robert Arnold to be his executor. Although this is probably the will of our Enoch, it is not proved to be so.3
