Death date unknown: According to a 1785 family letter, Hannah's husband Jeremiah lived to age 97 after removing to Rhode Island to live with their son John, possibly after Hannah's death. Therefore, the record of "Anna Wheaton, widow" does not belong to Hannah Wheaton whose husband outlived her. Hannah's death date is unknown except to say either before 1692, or between 1703 and 1719. Please note the date gaps in Rehoboth's death records due to fire.

Also, Hannah was not the Joanne Amydowne whose birth to Roger Amydowne was recorded on September 20, 1652 in Rehoboth. There was a 9 year gap between Lydia's birth and Joanne's, undoubtedly Hannah was ca 20+ years old when her first child was born, thus her birth year is estimated to be 1645.

Hannah's parents were Roger Amidon, shipwright, b. ca 1614 in Bordeaux, France, and Sarah, b. ca 1618. Hannah's relationship to Roger as well as her marriage to Jeremiah are proved via the settlement of Roger's estate: "one other acre of fresh meddow, lying att the aforesaid 40 acre meddow, be settled vnto and vpon Hannah Wheaton, the daughter of the said Roger Annadowne, wife vnto Jeremiah Wheaton, and likewise ten acres of vpland lying att Wachamaucutt Necke."

Hannah and Jeremiah were parents of the following known children:

• Hannah b. July 3, 1666
• Jeremiah b. March 8, 1669, became a sea captain, went to England and settled there
• John b. Sept. 2, 1671
• Sarah b. Sept. 29, 1673
