Hi, I was wondering if someone with better Mayflower resources could check to see if the marriage between Aaron Hawes Mary Snow is recognized as verified Mayflower descent. Mary is a granddaughter of Hopestill Alden and descendant of John Alden.  It looks like the Silver Book only had her married to a ______ Foster.

In the Part 1 book this is her listing:

"Mary, b. 28 Feb 1724; living 19 Mar. 1760 (father's will); m. _____ Foster."

This is from the 2016 edition, page 356.  So, at least as of 2016 her husband's name was unknown.

She does not have a profile number, so her line is not continued in the next book.

Thanks Sandra!  I was looking for her father's will but couldn't find it because the date of death was wrong.  Somehow the date of his will was attributed to his second wife Hannah.  I left a comment on the father's profile.  He does name his daughter "Hannah Foster"  The will was written in March 1760, and Aaron Hawes married Mary Snow in December so clearly not the correct parents.  

Perhaps she can be disconnected, and a new profile created for James' daughter.  I think maybe PPP may be needed?
I agree.  It looks like the wife of Foster and the wife of Hawes have been conflated.  Disconnecting this woman from the parents and creating a new daughter for them seems the best way to go.
