She married Isaac Pierce (1700-1773) 7 September 1722 in Lexington, Middlesex County, Massachusetts.

Vital Records

There is a birth record for an "Anna" Bemis in Watertown vital records, daughter of Ephraim Bemis and Elizabeth. While most of the rest of the family apparently moved to Connecticut, it looks like Susanna and a few of her sisters stayed in Massachusetts. [Note: Most researchers have apparently assumed that the "Anna" born to Ephraim and Elizabeth is the same "Susanna" who married Isaac Pierce.]

There is a marriage record for Susanna Bemis in Watertown vital records: Bemis, Susanna, and Isaac Peirce, Sept. 7, 1722.
