It is interesting to note that after Joanna began her second marriage, she entered into a post-nuptial agreement (1685) “to bring her two sons and daughter with her to yorke.” She described these children as “her three youngest children.” Daniel Livingstone was killed at York, ME by the Indians on 20 Aug 1694. On 7 July 1699, Joanna furnished an account of a second inventory of the estate of John Pray (281 pounds) and, on 20 July 1699, the estate was divided among “the sd Joanna and the five children of the sd deced namely Ephraim Pray, Samuel Pray, Joseph Pray, Hannah Bell, and Dorothy Furbush.”
