my wife, a native of Quincy, kids and I visited her parents. They lived on Colonial Drive, just off Adams Street. I always stopped to read the marker, especially taken by its wording that Anne "tarried on her way to Rhode Island." (It set me wondering what she did while she tarried.) I learned only a few years ago that, following her exile, Anne Hutchinson moved to the Bronx, where the Siwanoy Indians murdered her and all but one of her children. It turns out the Hutchinson River Parkway, popularly known as the "Hutch," which goes from the Throggs Neck Bridge to the Connecticut state line (and then continues north as the Merritt Parkway) is named for Anne Hutchinson.
