John Rand and Remembrance Ault

HUSBAND:
[F3800]. John RAND. [PC T4-13].
Born (about 1640-S1)(1641-S?)(about 1645-S3,S6); son of Francis RAND [F7600] and Christina [F7601]. (S3,S5,S6).

He married Remembrance Ault. [F3801] in 1668 at Oyster River (now Durham), Strafford County, New Hampshire. (S1,S2,S4).

It is said that he was of Dover, New Hampshire.(S10).

He died in 1698. (S?). He was probably slain in the Indian massacre on Durham, Strafford County, New Hampshire in 1694. (S11).

There is another John Rand who lived approximately the same time, slightly later. This has caused some confusion. Check this link for clarification: John RAND of Charleston, Massachusetts .

WIFE:
[F3801]. Remembrance AULT. [PC T4-13].
Born in (1645-S2,S4)(1647-S8,S9)(about 1650-S3,S7) at Durham, Strafford County, New Hampshire; daughter of John AULT [F7602] and Rebecca TIBBETTS [F7603]. (S6,S8).

She married John RAND [F3800] in 1668 at Oyster River (now Durham), Strafford County, New Hampshire.(S1,S2,S4,S9).

[NOTE: Various sources (S2,S4,S8) say that Remembrance married Francis RAND [F7600], but I see no basis for this. She is said to have died 29 SEP 1691 in the Indian massacre at Sandy Beach, Rockingham County, New Hampshire. (S2,S4,S8). In reviewing what I can of the massacre in Sandy Beach, I find no mention of Remembrance being killed there. This may be confusion with the wife of Francis. I think it very likely that Remembrance was killed in the massacre in Durham in 1694, and that this has somehow been linked to the massacre in Sandy Beach in 1691.]
