Notes for HANNAH PURRIER ROE:
Daughter of ? and ?.
Born: Unknown in England.
Died: Unknown in Suffolk County, New York.
Buried: Cedar Hill Cemetery, Port Jefferson, Suffolk County, Long Island, New York.
Married: John Roe about 1665 in Unknown.
Some records indicate she might be Hannah Purrier, the daughter of William Purrier 1599-1675 of Southold but his will shows he did not have a daughter named Hannah. Both the Historical Society and Brookhaven refer to his wife as Hannah but Torrey's research proves his wives as being Alice, Sarah and Elizabeth.
