Facts and Events
Elizabeth was the ggg-grandmother of Nathaniel Hawthorne. From The Salem World of Nathaniel Hawthorne By Margaret B. Moore 
Another Quaker connection involved John Hathorne, the so-called witch judge, who in 1674/1675 married Ruth Gardner, the daughter of Lieutenant George Gardner and Elizabeth Freestone Turner Gardner. Judge John Hathorne's mother-in-law, then, was the "Lieut. Gardner's wife" who was so frequently cited in the early church records of Essex County for absence from meeting and for Quaker sympathies. Born a Freestone, she was a kinswoman of the Hutchinson family of Lincolnshire, England, and came to live with William and his more noted wife, Ann Hutchinson, in Boston. Hence, she was early in contact with those who did not conform to standard Puritan practice, since the meetings of the Antinomians were held in the Hutchinson home. Elizabeth Freestone married first Robert Turner, the shoemaker of Boston, and was the mother of John Turner, who later owned a house in Salem with seven gables. She was the second wife of George Gardner. She, not George, was the convinced Quaker, but he suffered too not only by paying her fines but also by the fact that they finally had to leave Salem sometime after 1669 and go to Hartford, Connecticut, to escape persecution. His daughter Ruth Gardner Hathorne was named in her father's will as receiving a number of her father's Connecticut debts. She named her last child Freestone Hathorne, who was baptized in February 1698/99.
