Mary Morrill, b. ca. 1617, married Peter Folger in 1644 at Nantucket.  Her Wikitree profile has her parents as Abraham Morrill, (Morrill-485) and Abigail Powell (Powell-5782).  This is impossible, given that the purported parents were born about the same time as Mary.

I can find no reputable source for Mary Morrill's parents.  I propose that she should be separated from Abraham and Abial with a note in the Bio.

I am commenting to bring this up to the top again.

Is there any info about Mary's parents?

Is there any objection to removing the parents who are currently attached, with a note in the Bio: Abraham Morrill (Morrill-485) and Abigail Powell (Powell-5782)?

Vic, her parents are unknown. According to "The Genealogy of the Gardner Family" (by Benjamin Hard Gardner, publ. 1953), she was an indentured servant to Mrs. Peters, wife of the Rev. Hugh Peters, and on the same ship as Peter (Ship Abigail, arrived MA in 1635).

Definitely parents should be detached.
