DEATH OF MRS. ANNA (WHITTAKER) HEYWARD
Mr. Sibley, the Librarian of Harvard College, to whom we are under obligation for many old newspapers which we have republished from time to time, furnishes the following extracts from the Massachusetts Gazette for Sept 27, 1764. Our readers will find in the second volume of the Register, a genealogical sketch of the Checkley Family, prepared by Mr. Drake, in which an account is given of the preservation of the Rev Mr. Rolfe, but Mr. Drake gives credit to Hagar, a Negro servant, while Anna Whitaker has respresented herself as having hidden in an apple chest. See Register II, Page 353, and the authorities there cited.
Brookfield, September 24, 1764
"On the 8th Inst., died after a few days illness, Mrs. Anna Heyward, in the 74th year of her age, the wife of Oliver Heyward, Esq. She has left by a former Husband 13 children, 82 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren, in all 112. She was very useful as a mid-wife and in her last sickness had the most unshaken trust in the Mercy of God, through the redeamer. In her youth, when the savages invaded Haverhill, she saved two children of the Rev. Mr. Rolf's by hiding them in the cellar after the indians had enter'd the House while they were glutting their rage on the parents; the two indians followed her into the cellar; yet such was her presence of mind and dexterity that she conceal'd the children and herself that they escaped their notice; and they were the only members of the famly at home to survive the bloody carnage".
