What We Know


Everything we know about this family is contained in the sources which appear below:

John Devereux, Jr., son of John Devereux, one of the earliest settlers in Marblehead, married Susannah Hartshorn of Reading, Massachusetts, and they had at least four children, three of whom were still living and mentioned in their grandfather's will.

Susannah Hartshorn's ancestry is well documented. Her parents had numerous sons who all had numerous children,



and the Hartshorn family was spread over Massachusetts and into Connecticut.

John died about at about 40 years of age, and his widow then married Stephen Parker of Andover. They relocated to Watertown, Massachusetts. Together they had two daughters, Ruth and Helzibah.

John and Susanna had 19 grandchildren. Susanna had at least eleven more from her daughters Ruth and Helzibah.
