Who was Mary Blunt? (unsourced profile)

I started to work on the Unsourced Profile of Mary Blunt Frost. The existing profile shows her as the wife of Samuel Frost, who died in 1848 in Rockingham, New Hampshire. A Google search brings up the same Mary Blunt in Ancestor.com, Geni, etc., but no original sources. It also brings up Mary Blunt, born on the same date (June 26, 1787), in the same place (Portsmouth, N.H.) who was married to Jeremiah Wheelwright (born Sept. 20, 1781, died Dec. 31, 1831, lost at sea). The source for this information is: Plummer, Steve J., "The Wheelwright Genealogy", on Google Books. The marriage between Mary and Wheelwright is said to have occurred on Jan. 27, 1805 and I first thought that Mary had two husbands, but the marriage between Mary and Frost is said to have occurred on Oct. 18, 1821, ten years before Wheelwright died. I suppose divorce is possible, but it is very unlikely in that day and age and none of the references mentions it.

The Plummer reference seems to have more weight behind it, but Google only offers a sample of it and, short of spending $30 for the print version of the book, I don't know what Plummer's sources are. Mary Blunt Frost is said to be the great-grandmother of Robert Frost, the poet, but I can't find anything that substantiates this either. Can anyone help me?
