After her husband's death she married secondly, Edward Stebbins as his second wife, on October 18, 1701. There were no children from this marriage. Edward, son of Thomas Stebbins and Hannah Wright, was born April 14, 1656 at Springfield and died there October 31, 1712. Edward was also captured by the Indian in 1676 while he was with Samuel Bliss and he was carried to the falls above Deerfield. With a youth named Gilbert , Edward made his escape from the Indians and told the authorities where they were, whereupon the English went and destroyed three hundred or more of them.
