Anna's signature on one of her husband's probate papers, with my enhancements

Anna died after 22 August 1726, when she, her children and a son-in-law acknowledged a deed in which they sold a homestead and common rights in Wenham.1 It was surely owned by John Edwards, Sr., maybe their own homestead, since they all had an interest in the property. For whatever reason they sold it, it may not be a coincidence that John, the only surviving son, had just turned 21.

children of Anna Dodge and John Edwards:

i. Anna b. 10 December 1700, d. 9 March 1700/01
ii. Mary b. 13 October 1702
iii. John b. 14 July 1705
iv. Anna b. 21 March 1707
v. Samuel b. 10 August 1712, d. 6 April 1714
