'Col. Richard Waldron (the successor of Cutt as President of New Hampshire) married President Cutt's daughter Hannah, who, it will be seen, was well provided for in his will. In about two years, in 1682, she with her only son, fourteen months old, were buried in that "Orchard" enclosure.'
DWS note: conflicts with Savage's report that it is his father who succeeded Cutt as NH president.
below is a note regarding a son by this Richard Waldron 1650 and his second wife:
DWS: from New England Historic Genealogical Society: 'Colonial Collegians' - Harvard pg 2036
'Richard Waldron. Secretary of the Province of New Hampshire was the grandson of Major Richard Waldron and the first child of Colonel Richard Waldron by his second sire. Eleanor Vaughan. He was born February 21. 1693 4. probably at Portsmouth. For the family had removed there after Grandfather Waldron, grim enemy of Indian and Quaker, had been captured and tortured to death by the Tawneys at the family home in Dover in 1689. When little Richard was a babe in arms, he and his parents narrowly escaped sharing in the massacre of Grandmother Cutts and her household. During his school and college days his father, the colonel, was busy fighting Indians, so that it was not unnatural that at Cambridge he should have a career of violence normal for his day, if intolerable for ours.'
Maj Richard Waldron

'Elnathan son of Capt. Richard & Anne Waldren 6th July 1659'
DWS: note : Savage says that Elnathan was born after Richard at Boston. Savage says Maj Richard Waldron was marr second to an Anne. So both wives must of been named 'Anne'
