According to George E. McCracken, the name of William Buell's wife was not memorialized in the record of their 18 November 1640 marriage. Her given name, Mary, is known "from other sources" but no more has been learned by which her maiden name or parentage could be known. McCracken explained specifically that while her surname is sometimes reported as Thomas or Post, "No evidence for these names has been discovered."
Mary was born in 1616. ... She passed away in 1684. Birth ABT 1619? There seems to be some controversy about Mary's birth date, 1608, 1616 and 1619. Other dates are in agreement.
Mary was born July 17, 1608 at Chesterton, Huntingdon, England.
Marriage 18 NOV 1640 Windsor, Hartford County, Connecticut; Also found also seen as 13 Nov 1640, possibly a mis-reading of a manuscript Death: Date: 1 SEP 1684 Windsor, Hartford County, Connecticut

She was the widow of William Buel (Bewell). They were married on Nov. 18, 1640 in Windsor and her surname was not given.
William left his wife two parcels of land, one by the Gravell Hill and one by the Mill Brook. Mary "Bewell", his relict, made oath 6 Mar 1681/1682 that she had made a true presentment of his estate and the distribution was accepted.
The inventory of her estate was taken Oct. 11, 1684 by James Hilliard & Samuel Barber and amounted to 19-15-06. Her will dated August, 1684 as follows: (it will not all fit, so see information at findagrave.com)

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?
Mary is 15 degrees from Kevin Bacon, 37 degrees from Anne Frank, 18 degrees from AJ Jacobs, 24 degrees from Neil deGrasse Tyson and 16 degrees from Queen Elizabeth II of the Commonwealth Realms on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
