On 10 April 1657, the couple sold property in Watertown and where described as being of Charlestown, where he was a merchant. In her mother's will of 1676, Rebecca's husband, Humphrey, was mentioned, but not her. As her mother had mentioned other siblings and their spouses, it appears that she had died by this time.
