Martha kept a school for small children in her father's house about 1776/7

Additional Children:
Samuel (1789-1863); married Eliza Lyman
Theresa (1791-?); married Edward Phillips and Charles Beck (sister Louisa's widower)

Note: Mass Vital Records show date of death as 26 May 1842

The Henshaw Tomb fell into disrepair and the tablets or stones were laid down level and the big oblong monument rolled over on to them. A descendant Judge Francis Dewey (son of Charles Dewey & Frances Aurelia Henshaw) of Worcester was going to have the monument rolled off, the inscriptions copied & then rolled back. He died before it was done.
