Margaret Baxter
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: unknown
Death: Feb. 13, 1661
Norfolk County
Massachusetts, USA

Married by 1632 Margaret _____ (assuming she is the mother of all his children). On 7 July 1659 Margaret Baxter is widow of Gregory (inventory), and she died at Braintree 13 February 1661/2.
(In his will of 20 August 1658 William Paddy of Boston bequeathed 50s. to "my sister Margaret Baxter," and Savage says that this was the wife of Gregory Baxter. But Nicholas Baxter of Boston, mariner, also had a wife Margaret, as may be seen from deeds of 25 December 1661 and 12 December 1668. In the latter deed we learn that she had had an earlier husband, with whom she had had a daughter Mary who married John Bull. Since William Paddy and Nicholas Baxter were both mariners, and were in these years both of Boston, it seems more likely that William's sister or sister-in-law was the wife of Nicholas and not Gregory.)
They had 3 children: Bethulia/Bethia Deering, Abigail Adams, & John.
