Abigaile was born 22 February 1659/60, in Salem, Essex, MA. Histories state her parents were John GREENE & Mary WARREN, from England. Various records online seem to indicate she was the eldest of 5 children (4 girls, 1 boy), named Abigail, Mary, Sara, Elizabeth, and John.
Abigaile is the grandmother of my favouritely-named ancestor, Zerubbabel JEROME, whom I wrote about on January 7, 2014 - #2 in this blog challenge for the year.
Abigail GREENE married Nicholas RICH (Jr.), the son of Nicholas & Sarah RICH, both from England as well. I have estimated her marriage date to Nicholas Jr. as approximately 1680-1685 in Salem, Essex, Massachusetts.
I have been able to find 6 children listed as their children, however there is a significant gap after #2, Abigaile, which makes me wonder whether she may have died, and the remaining four children might be from a 2nd wife:
1. Samuel, b. 1685; m.?; d. 1729
2. Abigaile [ancestor], b. 2 Oct 1687, Wenham [Salem] MA; m. in 1709 to Timothy JEROME; 7 children
3. David, b. 1695
4. Sara, b. 1697
5. Mary, b. 1699
6. John or Jonathan, b. 1702
I do not have a death date for Abigaile GREENE Rich. Her husband, Nicholas RICH (jr), apparently died 21 Oct 1726 in Preston, Connecticut, although I have confirmed neither this date nor place.
