Middlesex County
Massachusetts, USA

(Reverend) Nathaniel Gookin of Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Born at Cambridge, Massachusetts on October 22, 1656
Died in 1692, probably at Cambridge.
Nathaniel married in 1685 to Hannah Savage, a daughter of the widow Hannah (Tyng) Savage who had married about a year earlier to Nathaniel's father. Thus, Nathaniel married his father's step daughter.
Nathaniel and Hannah had the following children:
* (Reverend) Nathaniel Gookin II, born on April 15, 1687 at Cambridge, Massachusetts; and died of a slow fever on August 25, 1734 at Hampton, Rockingham County, New Hampshire. Nathaniel married on December 21, 1710 to Dorothy Cotton and was settled at Hampton from November 14, 1710 until the time of his death.
* Habajah Gookin, born on January 23, 1689; and died on August 1, 1689.
* Hannah Gookin, born in 1692.
The family of Norman D. Denzler-Medland is descended from Nathaniel Gookin (1687 - 1734) and Dorothy Cotton. Norm has sent along the following background on (Reverend) Nathaniel Gookin and his wife Hannah Savage:
"Nathaniel (1656-1692) graduated Harvard 1675 and was ordained 15 November, 1682 as successor of Urian Oakes as minister of the First Church, Cambridge. Married 3 August, 1685, Cambridge, Mass., to Hannah Savage (born 27 August, 1667, died 14 May, 1702).
"Hannah, at the time of the marriage was also the step daughter of Nathaniel's father Major General Daniel Gookin, who had married Mrs. Hannah Savage, mother of the above Hannah, about 1684. Hannah's father was Habijah Savage, (born 1 August, 1638, graduated Harvard College 1659) who married Hannah Tyng (born 1 May, 1640, died 28 October, 1688). She married the major general as Widow Savage.
"Hannah Tyng's father was Edward Tyng, Boston merchant (born 1610, died 28 December, 1681) who married about 1636 to Mary Sears.
"Habijah's father was Thomas, son of William Savage (born 1604 died 14 Feb 1682) who came from London 1635 in the ship 'Planter.' His Mother was Faith Hutchinson, daughter of William H. and Ann Marbury (birthplace Alford, Lincoln county, England 14 August 1617). Ann Hutchinson was a preacher and reformer. Driven from Boston, she took refuge in Providence, Rhode Island, and then went to New York where she was murdered by Indians. There is a statue of her in Boston." (bio by: Judy Love)
