Susannah Merrill
Birth: 1599
Ipswich Borough
Suffolk, England
Death: Jan. 25, 1673
Essex County
Massachusetts, USA

b. c. 1610(?) Ispwich, Suffolk, England
d. Jan. 25, 1672/73 Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts
Possible daughter of Stephen Wilterton (1585-1672) and Susanna Shep(p)ard (1587-1662) of Ispwich, England (not proven).

(née Wilterton, Wolterton, et al)
lst husband: Nathaniel Merrill (1601-1655), married Sept. 23, 1633 Whersted, Suffolk, England.(baptized May 4, 1601)
2nd husband: Stephen Jordan (1589-1670), married Aug. 16, 1661 Newbury, Essex, MA. (no children)
Mother of Nathaniel, John, Abraham, Susannah, Abel and Daniel Merrill.
Our 9th great-grandmother and ancestress of many.
Most likely now in an unmarked grave.
If the stones exist (either original or replacement ones), Susannah Merrill most likely buried under the name Susannah Jordan, beside her 2nd husband.
Mary Lovering Holman believed that she was a sister of Gregory Wolteron, but in 1993 Sanborn, Anderson and Smith demonstrated that this could not be, and her maiden surname remains unknown.
