Hannah Colby was born 14 February 1744/5 in Amesbury, Massachusetts, the fourth child (of five) of Joseph and Abigail (Worthen) Colby[1,3].
The Joseph Colby family moved from Amesbury to Chester, New Hampshire by 1760.
John Underhill and Hannah Colby married in about 1767 and had seven children between 1770 and 1785, all born in Chester, New Hampshire.
Joseph Colby, of Chester, N. H., resided on Lot No. 40, located on the Long Meadow road and near the old brick school house. On March 2, 1774, his daughter Hannah and her husband, John Underhill, purchased this place and lived there until they removed to Plainfield. They sold it in 1801 to Mary Brown but previous to its purchase they lived in Candia.
There is no record for the death and burial of Hannah (Colby) Underhill.
