    MARRIAGE: By 1638 Rebecca _____. She does not appear to have survived him since her son made no acknowledgment of or provision for her dower. "Alice, daughter of Abraham Peirce of Plimoth, being brought hither by Goody Scudder, his wife's sister and here baptized July 21, 1650" [NEHGR 9:284]. Goody Scudder was evidently the wife of John Scudder of Barnstable. Her first name may have been Hannah. That her sister took her youngest child implies that either Rebecca was ill, unable to nurse, or deceased following the birth.
