  • Notes 
    • Hannah lived sixteen years after the death of her husband, but John had provided for her by stipulating that their son, Joseph, whould inherit the family farm if he would care for Hannah for the rest of her days. Hannah's death is recorded in the 18 Jul 1809 issue of "The Providence Phoenix." It reads:

      "Mrs. Hannah Munro, widow of John and granddaughter of Colonel Benujamin Church, died at Rehoboth, aged 98 years. She had 13 children, 93 grand children, 161 great-grandchildren, and 22 great-great grand children - in all 289."

      She was buried in the family cemetery on the farm where she lived most of her life.
