Susannah's grave is not marked with a headstone. In his book, "Epitaphs in Old Bridgewater", Williams Latham wrote:"The adult persons living and dying in this part of old Bridgewater previous to 1703, and probably buried in this yard, so far as is known, were N. Byram, 1688, and his wife, Robert Latham and wife, 1685-1688; Jonathan Cary, of Beaver, 1695; Experience Mitchell, of Elmwood, 1689; Mercy Harris, wife of Issac Harris, about 1682. No other public place of burial is known to have been used; and we find a very few private burying-grounds in the early settlement of the town, here, or elsewhere, in old Bridgewater."
Susanna married Nicholas Byram about 1636. They had children, all born in Weymouth:
Nicholas - born about 1640
he married Mary Edson in 1676
Abigail Nicholas - born about 1642

Deliverance - born about 1644
she married John Porter in 1660
Experience - born about 1646

Susanna - born about 1648

Susannah made her will on September 7, 1698, and her death date is not known. She bequeathed to her children and grandchildren, and gave freedom to her negro Tom and her maid.
