A merge of Mary Unknown-305555 into Mary Fitch-75 has been proposed. I intend to reject this merge for a number of reasons, but I wanted to discuss it here first. Both profiles are attached as a spouse to Thomas Sherwood-62 with the same estimated year of birth and year of marriage (hence the assumption that they are the same person. There is plenty of evidence that Thomas married a "Mary." However, there has never been any reliable source evidence brought forward regarding any name for Thomas Sherwood's wife Mary, let alone that it was "Fitch."
Anderson, in The Great Migration, writes the following about Thomas Sherwood-62:
BIRTH: About 1586 (aged 48 on 30 April 1634 [Hotten 279]).
DEATH: Between 21 July 1655 (date of will) and 7 September 1655 (date of inventory).
MARRIAGE: (1) By about 1611 Alice Tiler, baptized Hitcham, Suffolk, 16 November 1585, daughter of John Tiler [TAG 82:211-13]. She died by about 1638.
(2) By about 1638 Mary _____. (In 1938 Jacobus presented the evidence that Mary was not a Fitch [NEHGR 92:303].) She married (2) by 4 June 1658 John Banks [Fairfield LR A:496-97; FOOF 1:25, 548]
So the standard source for PGM profiles rejects the notion that Thomas married a Fitch. What to do with these two profiles? I am not a trained (or even well-seasoned) genealogist, and I sometimes jump to the easiest but not best conclusions. So here are some proposals.
1. If Mary Fitch-75 truly represents the wife of Thomas Sherwood-62, then merge Fitch-75 into Unknown-305555, since the last name of Thomas's wife, Mary, is unknown.
2. If Mary Fitch-75 a real person (whose last name was Fitch) then she should be detached from Thomas Sherwood-62.
3. There are probably other options, so I would request that anyone interested in Mary Fitch-75 (or Thomas Sherwood-62) please jump in!
