    • Mary Shaw Greene wrote that Silence was a widow from Scituate, Massachusetts without evidence. Arnold's entry for the marriage reads [Greene] "Timothy, of W. Greenwich, and Silence Burlingame, widow, of Scituate; m. at Coventry by Elder James Colvin, Sept, 22 1751". The fact that Scituate is not specifically said to be in Massachusetts, suggests that Silence was from Scituate, Rhode Island, as other states are commonly named in these records. [12, 13]
