Esther Clark1

b. 12 March 1669/70, d. 1 August 1713
Father*Joseph Clark2 b. 1642, d. 1702
Mother*Mary Allen3 b. 1641, d. 1702
Birth*12 March 1669/70Esther Clark was born on 12 March 1669/70 in Medfield, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England).4,2
Marriage*15 June 1693She married, as his second wife, Thomas Thurston, son of Thomas Thurston and Sarah Thaxter, on 15 June 1693 in Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).5,6
(Wife) Death15 December 1704Esther became a widow when Thomas Thurston died on 15 December 1704.7,8
Marriage3 October 1711She married second, as his second wife, Thomas Bacon, son of John Bacon and Rebecca Hall, on 3 October 1711 in Wrentham, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).9,10,7
(Wife) 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.11,12,13,14
Death*1 August 1713She died on 1 August 1713 in Wrentham at age 43.9,15,16
