    Notes 
    • From The Doane Family:
      “From entries in Eastham town records, it is inferred that [Abigail] was, to some extent, engaged in business. Her name appears several times on Eastham records as the owner of horses.
      “May 6, 1672, sold and delivered according to a Court Order by Abigail Doane, to an Indian called Moses, one bay horse, ear marked two slits, a star in the forehead, a little white streak over the left nostril, burn marked E on the near buttock.—Eastham town record.
      “On the one hundredth anniversary of her birth, an audience of her neighbors and church people assembled in her rooms at Norwich, where a sermon was preached by her pastor, the Rev. Benjamin Lord. At this time, it is claimed, she retained to a remarkable degree the intelligence and vivacity of her earlier years.
      “Caulkins' History of New London gives the following notice of her death, copied from the New England Weekly Journal: ‘Mrs. Abigail Lothrop died at Norwich, Jan. 23, 1735, in her 104th year. Her father John Doane and his wife came to Plymouth in 1630, and there she was born the next year. She lived single till she was sixty years old and then married Mr. John (Samuel) Lothrop of Norwich, who lived ten years and then died.” [2]
