He left her a widow in 1642 and she inherited “his house & foure acres of land being his home lot. . . [and] The rest of [his] estate." It was unusual at that time for a woman to inherit. If she had had sons, they would have inherited.

She married her second husband Thomas Daggett (Doggett) about 1643. Thomas was born in 1607 in England. His first wife died in Concord on June 23, 1642.

Elizabeth died about 1653.
