See the information near the bottom of the biography for her husband, William Buell. That indicates that his wife's surname was unknown.

Something seems amiss.

Source that follows reports about Abraham Post and his wife "Ann Hurst," and calls out their daughter Mary. That daughter, however, is reported to have married Allen Wenn, not William Buell.

Records of the baptisms Abraham Post's children are found at Hollingbourne in Kent, England. Given the birth information about William Buell's wife, how would she be associated as Abraham's daughter?

How can this conflict be resolved?
