Hannah Knowlton married Benjamin Baldwin about 1692 in Massachusetts. She is Hannah-3 > Thomas-2 > William-1. She is an ancestor to perhaps hundreds of thousands of Americans. She is related through other relationships to millions of Americans, including Matt Damon and Ben Affleck (through her grandfather - Puritan immigrant William Knowlton.)

If she is the mother of all of the children of Benjamin, she had eight children: John May, Benjamin II, Daniel, Ebenezer, Timothy, Hannah, Patience, and Henry from 1697 through 1714.

Some genealogies and family histories attribute a death record in 1736 in Woburn Death Records to the wife of Benjamin-2 (Henry-1) Baldwin. However, that record is for a "Widow". Since Benjamin didn't die until 1759, she wasn't a widow in 1736 and that death record does not belong to her.
