Samuel Hadley Jr.

Samuel HADLEY Jr. (1677 – 1747) was Alex’s  8th Great Grandfather; one of 512 in this generation of the Shaw line.

Samuel Hadley was born in 1677 in Amesbury, Mass.  His parents were Samuel HADLEY Sr. and Jane MARTIN.  He married Dorothy COLBY on 23 Jan 1702/03 in Amesbury, Mass.  Samuel died 20 Dec 1747 in Amesbury, Mass.

Dorothy Colby was born 15 Jun 1677 in Amesbury, Essex, Mass.  Her parents were Isaac COLBY and Martha PARRATT.  Dorothy died 18 May 1756 in Amesbury, Essex, Mass.

I used to think Dorothy Colby was born in 1686 in Amesbury, Mass. and her parents were Anthony COLBY II and Elizabeth WEST.  This is the way has the relationship and the way I originally had it.  I don’t now think his  is correct, especially  because Samuel and Dorothy’s fourth child was named Parrott.
