In her Berlin, Vermont, diary on 19 February 1815, Mary Hubbard Nye records "Hannah Taplin died day after her child a son died." I am unable to determine who this Hannah is.  There are many Taplins in the Corinth and Berlin, Vermont area.  A Nathan B. Taplin married a Hannah Stevens, but both were living in Corinth in the 1850 Federal Census. researchers, without sources, identify a Hannah Taplin as the daughter of Mary Johnson and John Taplin.  These researchers assign their Hannah a date of death as 19 February 1815.  A John Taplin was an early settler of Berlin.  A John Taplin living in Berlin is recorded in the 1790, 1800, 1820, and 1830 Federal Census records.  If Hannah was Mary and John Taplin's daughter, then she was unmarried at the time of her pregnancy and death.
