Hannah Root1

b. 15 November 1718, d. before 28 September 1730
     Hannah Root was born on 15 November 1718.1 She was the daughter of Joshua Root and Margaret (?).1 She married (?) Weller.1 She died before 28 September 1730.1
     At least some of the information on Hannah from the Root Genealogical Records must be incorrect. It says she was born on 15 November 1718, married a man named Weller, and died before her father (i.e., before 28 September 1730). That would mean she was married by age 11. Perhaps she died before her husband, not father.1
