399. Hannah COMSTOCK was born on 27 March 1772 in Smithfield, Providence County, Rhode Island.211

The Comstock book says this Hannah married James Gardner of Smithfield. No date given. Database on ancestry show the marriage to James Gardner as circa 1790; then a marriage to David Hutchinson circa 1795.
The database gives Hannah's death as 1816, but children born to her as late as 1821, including the Hiram that David & his second wife were living with in 1850.

In RI vital records there is a married between James Gardner and Sally Olney, 31 Jan 1793.

Here is an old inquiry:

I would like to learn whether this David Hutchinson's 1st wife Hannah
Comstock was my husband's ancestor or whether a later wife Unknown was his
ancestor. How many children did Hannah have?

Family tradition says it is possible that David and Hannah moved from VT to
RI before moving to Ontario, Canada. Or did Hannah die in RI? There is
supposed to be a will in RI. Family tradition also says when David was
elderly he married Mrs. Bugbee.
