Jane (Goodenow) Wight's father d. of record Mar. 28, 1654 at Sudbury, Mass. In his nuncupative [verbal] will dated Mar. 2, 1653/4, Jane's husband Henry Wight was named executor and the will was presented to the probate court by Henry Wight on May 5, 1654. Henry Wight also gave oath on May 24, 1654 regarding the estate inventory taken on Apr. 11, 1654.

That Sgt. Henry Wight and wife Jane both d. at Dedham prior to 1700, it is assumed they are interred at the Old Village Cemetery at Dedham where the earliest interments have no record of specific location or extant gravestones.
