Notes

Not much is known about Solomon Lincoln.  He married Hannah Stetson when he was 22 (she was also 22), in Scituate, Massachusetts.  Hannah died in Scituate on 18-May-1740 at the age of 57 (cause unknown).  All of their children, except for perhaps Deborah, were born in Scituate, Massachusetts, a town on the Atlantic shore just north of Plymouth and southeast of Hingham and Boston.

Solomon then married the widow Elizabeth Franklin two years later (she was 48 and he was 59).  "Vital Records of Scituate, Massachusetts" does not record the death of Solomon.

Elizabeth Franklin was born in Dorchester, Massachusetts on 29-Sep-1693.  She first married David Franklin in Boston on 18-Jun-1713, and after he died in 1739, she then married Solomon Lincoln.  Her date of death is unknown.

Hannah Stetson was born in Scituate, Massachusetts in Jun-1682.  There were many from the family of Stetson that married Lincolns.  In fact, Hannah's grandson, John Lincoln, married the great-granddaughter (Ruth Stetson) of Hannah's brother, Robert.  Details are displayed in the graphic at right.
