Contributed from genealogical records of Robert Rolfe Phillips, a direct descendant:

Susannah Johnson, wife of Colonel John Hough, was born in Bosrah, Connecticut on September 22, 1757. She married John Hough on November 24, 1782. A family account of her follows: "Mrs Hough drew a pension after Capt Hough's death, of which she was very proud. (She was very blue in her blood relations, and did not want her children to associate with ordinary people. Bigelow's especially referred to.)"

Her obituary, in the Oxford Times, Chenango City, New York, on November 24, 1841 follows: "Died - At the residence of Col David Hough, Unadilla, on the 15th inst., Mrs Susannah Hough, widow of the late Col John Hough, a soldier of the Revolution, in the 83rd year of her age. She received a widows pension for her husbands service commencing March 4, 1836.
