    'Israel Woodward ... married in Taunton, 28 Dec. 1698, Bennet Eddy, born probably in Middleborough, Mass., in 1678, died in Newport 1 Jan. 1740, in her 63rd year, daughter of Obadiah3 Eddy (Samuel2, William1) and Bennet Ellis.

    'In the Common Burial Ground in Newport are the following gravestones ...
    In Memory of Bennet [th]e wife of Israel Woodward died Janry [th]e 1st 1740 In [th]e 63d year of her age.'

    If she died 1 Jan 1739/40 at the age of 62 (in her 63rd year), then she was born before 1 Jan 1677/78. If she died 1 Jan 1740/41, then born before 1 Jan 1678/79.
