Consort of Mr. Joshua Durant
died 10 Oct 1798
aged 48
Hannah was the second wife of my husband’s 1st cousin 5 times removed.  She first married Stephen Hodgman on 27 Nov 1776 in Chemsford, Middlesex, Massachusetts.  Stephen died in 1783 and she then married Joshua Durant (himself a widower), about 1783.

Hannah is buried at the West Cemetery in Keene, New Hampshire.  Many members of Ron’s family are buried in this cemetery.  You may visit her memorial here #50059868.

I don’t have a cause of death for Hannah.  I do have the following records of her death.  These records list her year of death as 1797 and the headstone is engraved as 1798.
