Hannah Wooster of Stratford, Connecticut

Hannah WOOSTER (daughter of Abram Wooster & Mary Walker) was born Feb 23, 1907 in Stratford, CT. She married 1st to ___ Cooke ( Source: The Reverend Abraham Beach, D.D. by Walter Herbert Stowe); she married 2nd, Elnathan Beach (his 2nd wife) on Dec 10, 1739 in Cheshire, CT. Their only child together was Rev. Abraham Beach. Elnathan died in 1742 when his son was only 2, and Hannah married a 3rd time to Dr. Jonathan Bull. Hannah had two children with Dr. Bull, Hannah 1745-1811 and Jonathan 1746-1825. When their daughter Hannah Bull died in 1811, the newspaper noted that she 'died at the home of her brother, the Rev. Dr. Beach' (source: Hale Collection of Cemetery Inscriptions and Newspaper Notices, 1629-1934), which validates, both were the children of Hannah WOOSTER.
Hannah Wooster Cooke Beach Bull died Feb 9, 1770 in Hartford, CT.
The confusion appears to stem from the fact that this Hannah's 2nd husband Elnathan Beach had a son of the same name (by his first wife Abigail Ufford). This son married a Hannah COOK. (Hannah Cook 1722-1754, daughter of Samuel & Hannah Lewis Cook). The fact that Hannah Wooster's first husband was named COOKE has caused most sources to confuse the two.
