Burnham, Susan, 1794 -
Susan (Susannah) Burnham (October 2, 1794-After 1850) was the daughter of Benjamin Burnham and Talitha Perkins of Lisbon, Connecticut. She married Captain Isaac Williams in her hometown on April 14, 1828. The couple lived in North Stonington and had at least three children, Susan (b. 1829), Phebe (b. 1833), and an infant who died in 1831. From January 1840 to the end of 1843, Susan and Isaac received payment from the Eastern Pequot overseer for boarding Philena, a member of the tribal community. Three years after the death of her husband in 1847, Susan removed to Stonington, where her household included two of her children and Eunice White, presumably a boarder.
