     Anne was born. Anne married Joseph Carpenter II, son of Joseph Carpenter and Hannah Carpenter, circa 1684. Joseph inherited the estate of his father after his death and took over the operation of the mills. He appears to have kept togetherwhat his father had acquired, caring on the business of the mill as well as the plantation. There is a vague tradition that he lost his life in endeavoring to save the mill during a flood which carried away the mill and the adjoining buildings. Around 1667, he resided at Musketa Cove, Hempstead, Queens Co., L.I., New York. Anne departed this life in Musketa Cove, Hempstead Town, Queens County, Long Island, New York.
