NOTE: The story that her identity is “Mary Hyanno,” a supposed Indian princess was started in the late 1990s with the publication of a CD-Rom of compiled genealogical information, Family Archive CD-100: 1500-1990 Family Pedigrees by United Ancestries, a now-defunct company. This identity is totally unsupported by any original sources despite diligent research by qualified genealogists. See The Middler, Newsletter of the Society of Middletown First Settlers Descendants, Vol 6 No.1, Spring 2006 by Editor R. W Bacon for an in depth discussion of this topic.

I changed her back to Mary Unknown, project-protected her, and added a merge warning at the top of the narrative.

Ooops! Someone incorrectly merged Mary Unknown with Mary Bull. Mary Bull was the wife of the SON of William.
