Marriagebefore 30 October 1667She married Thomas Delano, son of Philippe de La Noye, before 30 October 1667 in Duxbury, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony).1
Court Action*30 October 1667 On 30 October 1667 Thomas Delano was fined for "having carnall coppulation" with his wife Rebecca before their marriage. The Delano genealogy has the child of that relationship born on the same day his father was being sentenced. Thomas and Rebecca may have felt the shame of their situation, for they named the child Benoni, the name meaning "child of sorrow" in Hebrew but more commonly used by the colonists for a son whose mother died in childbirth.2,3
Death*after 13 June 1688She died after 13 June 1688 in Duxbury, Plymouth County, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony).

Abiezer Alger

(Debtor) Final Accounting2 April 1833The estate of Abiezer Alger Esq. was listed as having paid $10.00 to the estate of John Bolton on the second and possibly final Bolton Inventory and Expenses dated 2 April 1833. The accounting was submitted by Administrator Jonas Hartwell and filed with Probate Justice Wilkes Wood in East Bridgewater. New items totaling $162.14 had been added to the $239.89 value of the initial inventory making the total value of his estate $402.03 before expenses. $150.00 and $10.00 had been received from the estates of Nathan Alger and Abiezer Alger Esq. respectively, interest received totaled $2.00 and there was $.14 cash in hand. The Administrator requested and received allowance in the amount of $137.72 for the following estate expenses: $5.16 in funeral charges, $34.50 for the deceased's last sickness, $20.11 paid to Dr. Caleb Swan, $6.47 paid to Dr. Noah Whitman, $1.70 in expenses for appraising the estate, $12.28 lost in the sale of the personal estate, $1.00 paid to Charles Hayden, $15.00 for a pair of gravestones and $41.50 for settling the estate.

The net value of the estate, after expenses, in 1833 was $264.31 which in today's dollars (2009) would be about $6,830. No mention of a wife, children or family members were found in the probate papers nor was there any indication of how the closing amount was disbursed.1
