Elizabeth Scribner 3

bullet  General Notes:

It appears likely that Elizabeth died prior to 3 December 1724, which is when Samuel prepared his will. There is no mention of Elizabeth in it.

A question exists as to whether Samuel re-married following the death of Elizabeth. Even the chronicler of the Eastman Family, Guy S. Rix of Concord, New Hampshire, states (in his HISTORY AND GENEALOGY OF THE EASTMAN FAMILY IN AMERICA [Concord: The author, 1901],13) that Samuel's second marriage, on 17 September 1719, was to Sarah Fifield, who died in Kingston, NH, 3 August 1726. However, there are compelling reasons as to the inaccuracy of that assumption. First, Rix is confusing Shuah Fifield (the woman in question) with her mother, Sarah. Second, Samuel was born in 1657. Shuah Fifield was born in Kingston on 13 March 1702/03, the daughter of Joseph and Sarah (Sherburne) Fifield (Kingston Town Records, quoted by Kathleen Hosier in KINGSTON, NEW HAMPSHIRE, EARLY FAMILIES, PATRIOTS & SOLDIERS [op. cit.], 65). That makes Samuel 46 years older than Shuah. Third, Kingston Town Records record the marriage on 17 September 1719 of Shuah Fifield (who died 3 August 1726) and Samuel's son, Samuel Eastman, Jr. This is corroborated by David W. Hoyt in THE OLD FAMILIES OF SALISBURY AND AMESBURY, MASSACHUSETTS,1[op. cit.], 146. A fourth reason would be that, in his will, Samuel makes no mention of Shuah.


Elizabeth married Samuel Eastman, son of Eastman and Unknown, on 4 Nov 1686 in Salisbury, Essex, Massachusetts, USA.1 2 (Samuel Eastman was born on 20 Nov 1657 in Salisbury, Essex, Massachusetts, USA 6 and died on 27 Feb 1725 in Kingston, Rockingham, New Hampshire, USA 4.)
