His nuncup. will gave all to his w. Ann for the reason

|Notes for Ann (Spouse 1)|
There are several theories of who is wife was. Ann Hammond may not be correct. Two theories connect him with our ancestor Rev. John Lothrop because John Lothrop refers to Thomas as "my brother Dimmick" which means that either Rev. Lothrops second wife as a sister of Dimock or a sister of his wife.
