Faxons in 1600s

My Perry family history, written in 1937 by Charles M. Perry, includes the following about the Faxons:

"Sarah3 Faxon, the 2d wife of Lieut. Joseph3 Weld, was daughter of Thomas2 Faxon and Deborah2 Thayer of Braintree.
Sarah and Joseph were married Nov 27, 1679.
Sarah was 20 years old at this time and had been an orphan since the age of three, as both parents died in May 1662, leaving a family of 4 young children."

It goes on further about her second marriage, and headstone, which was restored in 1928.

Sarah and Joseph Weld's daughter,
Margaret Weld m. Benjamin White, their son
Joseph White m Sarah Crafts, their son Ebenezer White m Hannah Davis, their son,
Joseph White m. Lucy Leverett, their daughter,
Hannah White m Edward8 Perry, my greatgreatgreatgrandfather.

Please let me know if you have anything to add, or if you want more info from me.
