Topsfield, MA Vital Records (p.33) show the following children born to John (& Mary) Death:
Thomas b. 21 May 1670
Oliver b. 21 May 1670
John b. 2 Jan 1676

MA Vital Records to 1850 (online at NEHGS) show the following children born to John and Mary Death in Sherborn, MA:

Hephzibah b. 5 Jun 1680
Lydia b. 26 Mar 1862
Samuel b. 12 Sep 1682
Ruth b. 20 Jul 1688

Legislators of the Massachusetts General Court, 1691-1780 shows John Death (Dearth) as having seven children. Was there a Mary, too?

I had the same doubts about Mary (Peabody) Death being the Mary that married Samuel Eames, due to the mention of her in her father's will and her age at the time of the Eames childrens' births.

Where did you find John Death's will? I would like to look that up.

Hope this helps in some way.
Janet
