|Hannah Odlin Bumstead|
|Birth: ||Oct., 1643|
HANNAH, 5th known child of John & Margaret Odlin, was baptized 29 October 1643 "being about 8 days old." She married by 1664 Jeremiah Bumstead.
"Jeremiah & Anna Bumsteed" had daughter (and apparently first child) Hannah born in Boston 21 November 1664 [ BVR 92]. This couple had three more children, in 1666, 1668 and 1670, and then in 1673 Jeremiah had the first of several children with wife Sarah. Hannah Bumstead born in 1664 is the only candidate to be John Odlin's grandchild, and Jeremiah's first wife Anna (certainly Hannah Odlin born 1643) must have died about 1671 or 1672, thus predeceasing her father. Why John Odlin did not name his other Bumstead grandchildren is not known. (A recent article identifying the second wife of Jeremiah Bumstead as Sarah Blanchard reports a late-recorded deed in which John Odlin deeded land to Jeremiah and Hannah Bumstead "for the love and affection of my son Jeremiah Bumstead.")
Various genealogists have claimed that John Odlin's daughter Hannah was Anne, the wife of Jeremiah Clarke of Newport. No evidence for this is given, but these authors were apparently persuaded to make this guess on the basis of the presence in Newport of John Odlin's son John, and the use by Jeremiah's son Samuel of the unusual given name of Audley when naming one of his sons. This is certainly not sufficient to displace Jeremiah Bumstead as the husband of Hannah Odlin. (Noyes-Gilman also claims that Hannah married Jonathan Davol, which has even less validity than the Jeremiah Clarke claim, and which has been refuted by Leo H. Garman.)
