Notes for Hannah (Spouse 1)
John Lathrop and his wife Hannah were heros in the struggle for religious freedom. They were arrested on 29 Apr 1632 and put in prison where she died in 1634. Then King Charles I allowed Rev. John to leave prison and come to America with their children where he was a distinguished leader for religious tolerance. Three U.S. Presidents are descended from John and Hannah Lothrop.
