Hannah (Anna) Foote, daughter of John Foote and Sarah Prindle, was born in 1727.1,2

Hannah married (1) Abraham Towner, son of Phineas Towner and Eunice (…), 7 August 1750;1 she married (2) Ebenezer Weed, whose ancestry is unknown (or not traced here), between 1761 and 1771.1,3

As their "father-in-law," Ebenezer Weed, was appointed guardian of Abraham's two younger sons, Elijah and Enoch, 26 August 1771 and 1 January 1772, respectively. By implication, Hannah must have married Ebenezer sometime before then, though there seems to be no surviving record of the marriage.4,3
