According to The History of Leeds, Hannah Lindsey came to Littleborough in 1788 and made her home with her brother James. Records indicate that James may not have settled the area until after 1790 while brother William was probably established in Leeds by 1785.

In 1790, she was employed in the family of Thomas Stinchfield, whose wife, Sara True, died in 1791, just shortly after Hannah's employment.

Sara True married Thomas Stinchfield 17 December 1765 in New Gloucester, Cumberland County, Maine after her first husband, Mr. Paul, left her a widow at the age of twenty-one with one child by the name of Marshfield Paul. Mrs. Stinchfield bore 8 more children in her second marriage, leaving Thomas with a household of children to care for after his wife's death.

It therefore seems likely that Thomas Stinchfield's marriage one year later to his employee, Hannah Lindsey, who was then 40 years old and still a maiden lady, was probably a union of convenience.

Thomas was buried at the age of fifty-seven along side his first wife. Hannah Lindsey was placed beside him two years later.
