18.^  No other record of this person has been found. Bond says she married Benjamin Tucker, but there is a question mark by this entry, displaying doubt. She had a contemporary first cousin, Mary, daughter of Joshua and Rebecca (Church) Warren. Since Joshua's will names daughter Mary Tucker, it seems certain that it was she who married Benjamin Tucker, and not Daniel's daughter Mary.
