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

Mother*Hannah Halbeck2
(Daughter) Research NotesWhile we feel fairly confident that these CLARKE people are related, we are not at all certain we have identified their relationships correctly. If anyone has answers for us, we would really love to know. In the meantime, here is what we know and what, additionally, we guess: We know that Hannah (Halbeck) Clarke was the mother of Phoebe (Clarke) Heaton. We suspect that Hannah was married to Robert Clarke and that he was Phoebe's father. We further suspect that the older John Clarke may have been Robert's brother or father, and that the younger John Clarke and James Clarke were sons of either Robert or John.3,4,5,6,7
Birth*1778Phoebe Clark was born in 1778.1
Name-SpellingsPhoebe's family's surname was spelled Clarke until after her marriage.5,4
Census 1800*1800Phoebe was possibly enumerated on the 1800 census in the household of her husband Washington Heaton in East Bethlehem, Washington County, Pennsylvania. The household consisted of three people: one male age 16 thru 25, whom we believe was Washington, one female age 16 thru 25, possibly his wife Phoebe, and one female under 10. We note that other researchers have reported that 1802 was the year of Washington's marriage to Phoebe, so this may be a first wife and child, or a learning that Washington and Phoebe married before the census was taken in 1800.8
Marriage*1802She married Washington Heaton, son of John Heaton and Rebecca ______, in 1802 in Washington County, Pennsylvania.1
Census 1810*1810Phoebe was likely enumerated on the 1810 census in the household of her husband Washington Heaton in Pike Run, Washington County, Pennsylvania. The household had grown to a total of 8 people in 1810 and consisted of one male and one female each age 26 thru 44, whom we believe to be Washington and Phoebe, one female age 16 thru 25, one female age 10 thru 15 and four females under 10.9
Relocation*1818Phoebe and Washington moved with their family in 1818 to a farm near Borden, Clark County, Indiana.2
Census 1820*1820Phoebe was likely enumerated on the 1820 census in the household of her husband Washington Heaton in Washington County, Indiana. The household consisted of 10 people: one male age 45 and over and one female age 26 thru 44, who were probably Washington and his wife Phoebe, one male age 26 thru 44, four females age 10 thru 15, 2 females under 10 and one male under 10. Two people were engaged in agriculture.10
Death*1823She died in 1823 near Borden, Clark County, Indiana.11

Marriage Settlement*2 June 1752A memorial of certain articles of marriage dated 2 June 1752 was made between Andrew Bell of Aghnacreevy, County Cavan, gentleman and Andrew Bell, his son and heir apparent, of the one part, Ann Clarke of Putiaghan, spinster, of the other part and Walter Hinds of Corrakane of the third part, all in the county of Cavan concerning a marriage to be had between Andrew Bell, the son of Andrew, and Ann Clarke. In consideration of £177, 16 shillings and 3 pence secured to be paid by Walter Hinds, Andrew Bell the father assigned and made over unto Andrew Bell his son all his right, title and interest in and to the lands of Aghnacreevy, he paying unto his father during his life and also during the life of his mother Lettice £14 yearly to commence from the first day of May next. Then Andrew, the father, for the considerations mentioned, assigned and made over to Andrew, his son, all his right, title and interest in and to the lands of Ballyheelan and after his death to the male heirs of Andrew lawfully begotten on the body of Ann. And it was thereby agreed that in case Ann should survive Andrew, she should enjoy one third full parts of all lands and chattels as a jointure, and in case that Andrew the son should not have any male issue, then the lands of Aghnacreevy should be left to Robert Bell, the father Andrew's son, and Robert's male issue. And in case Robert should not have any male issue, then to the female issue of Andrew Bell, the son. The agreement also gave Andrew, the son, the power to settle a proper provision for his female issue. Witnesses to the document included Thomas Hinds, Samuel Stephens, Walter Bell and Samuel Donaldson, all members of the Hinds-Clarke-Bell extended family. The memorial deed was registered on 31 March 1756.2
