Lucretia BILL, New London, CT, b ca 1727

  of 297

Looking for information on Lucretia BILL, born about 1727, who married Samuel HOLMES of the North Parish of New London, Connecticut (later Montville, Connecticut). Samuel and/or Lucretia may have originally been from Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Baker's "History of Montville" says:

After [Samuel's] death his wife is supposed to have removed to Salem and lived with her son, Samuel, until her death, Sept. 20, 1820. In the old Salem burying-ground there are several by the name of Holmes whose gravestones appear there. Upon one stone in the group of the Holmeses is the name "Lucretia, wife of Samuel Holmes, Died Sept. 20, 1820, aged 93 years."

An email correspondent identifies this Lucretia's surname as BILL. Any further information welcome.
