Abigail Williams born 7 July 1663 Salem, Essex, Massachusetts, Died 26 March 1714 Sudbury, Middlesex, Massachusetts Her parents: Joseph Williams and Sarah Browning.

There seems to be no place for a daughter Abigail born in 1663.
Note: Salem births on AmericanAncestors list Joseph, s. of Joseph Williams & Sara (Browning) was born ___1663.
Joseph, son of Joseph Williams and Sara (Browning) was born Mar. 17, 1664/5
Joseph, s. of Joseph and Sara (Browning) died 8th of the 11th month, 1664
Joseph Williams and Sara Browning were married the 20th of the 9th month, 1661. (Salem Marriages)

Then I found on FamilySearch.org - Abigaile Williams was born 7 Dec 1673, Salem, Essex, MA to Joseph & Sara Williams. She was a twin to Benjamin. In the marriage records - digitized from the Town Records, an Abigail William married Thomas Massey, 3 Jan 1698. Then an Abigail Williams married Jonathan Archer, 8 Nov 1699 in Salem.

There is also a marriage for Samuel Allen & Abigail Williams in Marblehead, Manchester, MA, 17 Mar 1686 - this is a very different Samuel.

Abigail was apparently a second wife, and I suspect much younger than Samuel.

SAMUEL ALLEN and ABIGAIL WILLIAMS had the following children:

Aaron ALLEN was born on 31 December 1707 in Sudbury, Middlesex County, Massachusetts.1,2 He died in March 1754 at the age of 46 in Dedham, Norfolk County, Massachusetts..

Aaron may have gone to Sturbridge, as did his brother Moses - but there may have two Aaron Allen with a wife Hannah.. There is at least one conflict concerning the birth year of the Aaron Allen in Sturbridge since he has a recorded death of 1794, in his 79th year - a birth year of 1715, not 1707.

Marriage in the Massachusetts Marriages database at Familysearch.org:
Aaron Allen to Hanah Mason, 6 Dec 1733, Dedham, Norfolk Co, MA. This would be a bit too early for a man born in 1715.
Benjamin Allen, born 23 Dec 1735, Dedham, Norfolk, MA
Samuel Allin, born 26 Dec 1740 - Dedham, Norfolk, MA
Moses Allin, born 21 Dec 1743 - Dedham, Norfolk, MA

Aaron's death recorded in Dedham, March 1754.


The Aaron Allen in Sturbridge
Aaron Allen was born 13 Feb 1715 to Joseph Allen and Miriam Wright...
Vital Records from Sturbridge, Worcester Co MA suggest that Aaron's wife was Hannah, and she was the mother of his children. These births or baptisms are recorded - under the surnames of both Allen and Allin. (name is seen as Hannah Morse on FamilySearch, but that could be a confusion with Mason)
Aaron, son of Aaron & Hannah Allen, b. 22 Aug 1739
Simeon, son of Aaron & Hannah, b. 26 Jun 1741
Elizabeth, daughter of Aaron & Hannah, b. 29 Mar 1743
Thankfull, daughter of Aaron & Hannah, b. 29 Jun 1745 - d. 3 May 1759
Prudence, daughter of Aaron & Hannah, b. 1 Dec 1747 (Congregational Church record)
Ruben, son of Aaron & Hannah, b. 12 Nov 1749 (CCR) - d. 5 Nov 1754
Ithama Allin, son of Aaron & Hanah, b. 9 Oct, 1751 (CCR)
Joel Allin, son of Aaron & Hanah, b. 26 Oct 1753 - d. 27 Aug 1754
Caleb Allin, son of Aaron & Hanah, b. 25 Jun 1755 (CCR)
Amasa Allin, son of Aaron & Hanah, b. 27 Sep 1757 (CCR) - d. 26 Oct 1759
Elisha, son of Aaron & Hanah, b. 20 Nov 1759
Hannah, daughter of Aaron & Hannah, b. 29 Sep 1762 - d. 27 Oct 1762

It is believed that Aaron of Sturbridge had a second marriage to Deborah Plimpton, a widow, 4 Jan 1779 in Sturbridge. Hannah, wife of Aaron had died 17 Aug 1778 in her 63rd year.
He died 3 May 1794, in the 79th year (this would indicate a birth year of about 1715, which conflicts with this man's birth in Sudbury on 1707.

Son Aaron, Jr. married an Abigail Allen, 15 Mar 1764 - quite possibly a cousin. He died 30 Nov 1818 of consumption - age 79 which agrees with the above birth year. His widow, Abigail, died in October of 1828, age 87.
Marriages and deaths of some of the other children are also recorded in the Sturbridge Vital Records.

Abigail ALLEN8 was born on 14 March 1710 in Sudbury, Middlesex County, Massachusetts.1,2

An Abigail Allen married John Stacy, Jr. on 1 Nov 1743 in Sturbridge. Moses & Allen were both living there at that time and she was their sister. She was a bit old for a first marriage - age 33 - if it was this Abigail.
