Zilpah ______

b. circa 1760, d. 17 November 1809
Birth*circa 1760Zilpah was born circa 1760. Her age was calculated from the age of 49 recorded at her death in 1809.1
Marriage*She may have married Samuel Peirce.
Residence*1800An individual named Zilpha (__?__) Peirce was listed in The Boston Directory of 1800. Her occupation was given as retailer, commerce(s) and her address as Cambridge street, Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts.2
(CLUE Person) Marriage Intention27 April 1801An intention of marriage for John Samuel Ward Jones and Zilphia Pierce was recorded on 27 April 1801 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts. The record included the information that both were white and resided in Boston. No record of a marriage has been found, however, and John married Ann Joyce later that same year. Where this "Zilphia Pierce fits into the Peirce/Pierce family is not yet known.3,4
Residence2 May 1805An individual named Zilpha (__?__) Peirce, and believed to be the same Zilpah Peirce who died in 1809, placed an advertisement dated 2 May 1805 in the Independent Chronicle newspaper of Boston. It ran on May 2, 13 and 27 and read: "Salt Rheum &c. cured. WIDOW ZILPAH PEIRCE has for Sale, Indian Salve and Wash, which has cured numbers of the Salt Rheum, feald head, sore legs, &c. Indian liquid for Worms; do. tooth ache; do. salves for agued breasts; burns; piles, &c. Innocent and cheap -- no cure, no pay. N.S. The Wash will heal any serusulous humour in the face, and any sore on horses or aminals (sic). Cambridge street, opposite Chamber's street. May 2". At this point in our research we are suspecting that she may have been the widow of Samuel Peirce who died on 26 May 1802 in Boston and are "hoping" to learn that they were relatives or possibly even parents of "our" Zilpah.5
Death*17 November 1809Another individual named Zilpha (__?__) Peirce died in Boston on 17 Nov 1809 at the age of 49. The notice of her death in the Boston Mirror the following day read: "DIED. Yesterday afternoon, Mr. (sic) Zilpha Peirce, aged 49. Her funeral will proceed from Mr. Davisons's house, Salutation alley, tomorrow afternoon, 4 o'clock. Relations and friends are desired to attend without any further invitation."6,1
