  4.   There is a mistaken death date commonly attributed to Elizabeth of 5 Mar 1688. Probably this is based on an article on the Parker Family in Source:The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, p. 16:41 (1862), which says "Elizabeth, b. April 10, 1663; m. James Pierce of Woburn; d. March 5, 1688." This is repeated nearly verbatim in Source:Descendants of Abraham Parker of Woburn and Chelmsford, Massachusetts, and ancestors of Benjamin Franklin Parker. This death date appears to be patently wrong. Besides the death record in 1715 cited above, Elizabeth is recorded as the mother of three children after this date. (see Source:United States, Massachusetts, Middlesex, Woburn. Records of Births, Deaths, and Marriages, 1640-1900, p. 1:194.) "Elizabeth, the wife of James Pierce" is mentioned in the will of her mother, Rose (Whitlock) Parker, dated 17 Sep 1691, also after her supposed death. (see Source:The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, p. 55:443.) One must assume that there has been a mis-identification of James' wife with his mother, whose death is recorded in Source:United States, Massachusetts, Middlesex, Woburn. Records of Births, Deaths, and Marriages, 1640-1900, p. 2:146: "Pierce, Elizabeth, widow of ----, [died] March 5, 1688". However, as James had not yet died, this is clearly his mother (see Person:Elizabeth Cole (13)) and not his wife.
