Elizabeth CROW was born in 1650 at Hartford, Hartford County, CT, and died on 13 Nov 1695 at Plymouth, Plymouth County, MA.

She married first William WARREN circa 1675 at Boston, Suffolk County, MA; children (surname WARREN):

  1. Abigail (b. 1676/7; not w/o Richard LORD or Rev. Timothy WOODBRIDGE)
  2. Ann (m. Matthias TREAT)
  3. Elizabeth (m. William HILLS)
  4. Mehitabel (m. Obadiah WOOD)
  5. Hannah (m. William Perry)
  6. poss. Joshua (m. Jane ORCUTT)
  7. Abraham (m. Experience STEVENS)

On 12 Feb 1689/90, at Plymouth, Plymouth County, MA, Elizabeth m2. Dea. Thomas CLARKE.

RESEARCH NOTE: This Elizabeth probably married 12 Feb 1689/90 Dea. Thomas CLARKE (not the one who d. 1727) and died 13 Nov 1695 in Boston. She cannot be the one who married Phineas Wilson in 1691 whose will said "I give to my wifes daughter Abigail Warren Tenn pounds in money" and The Memorial History of Hartford says she took over Wilson's business and "managed her affairs with wisdom and judgment."

Savage, however, says that was an error and (quote): "... she was very infirm or insane, and certain. Wilson found a better w. Strangely out of place is the confusion a. the wid. of Phineas Wilson, in the address of Mr. Day, Presid. of the Conn. Hist. Soc. 26 Dec. [vol. 4, p. 428] 1843, at the foundat. of thee beautiful edifice for the Wadsworth Athenaeum, title to the realty being deduc. from her. But great uncertainty is found in the identity of the w. of Richard Lord; and aft. large investigat. it is clear, that no derivation from, or connection with, Hartford William can be traced. Certain. thee wid. of Phineas Wilson did not m. Lord, but her d. Abigail did."
