Michael Cary/Carey parentage and Revolutionary War service?

+9 votes
Searching for parents of Michael Carey/Cary and his wife Abigail Young, who married 1 August 1785 in Newbury, MA.  Michael's first wife was Mary Cheney, who died ca. 1784.  Also, did Michael provide any service to the patriot cause during the Revolutionary War?  (Not to be confused with another Michael Cary, who served from Boston.)

This service most likely belonged to a different Michael Carey, who lived in Boston.  From what I've been told, my ancestor Michael was probably born around 1735-1740.  Thank you for the information, though.
