Please PPP Mary (Unknown) wife of Allen Bread (he is PGM) of Lynn?  She is sometimes assumed to have been a Sargent or an Osborn (using User-contributed sources).  So her profile is frequently duplicated.

The family settled at Lynn sometime before 1638, when Allen's father participated in the distribution of the "six-mile grant."

We currently have some merges to be proposed.

Thank you in advance!

WikiTree profile: Mary Bread
closed with the note: resolved, and PPP now removed for merge into Sargent-747  Thank you!

Cynthia, Joe C just posted the following:

"Please see the article The Essex Genealogist vol. 13 (1993: 166. Allen2 Breed's Wife Identified as Mary Sargent, by Volney Plumb. It corrects the error in Marcia Linberg's article. It also shows where the error of the name Mary Elizabeth Osborn come from - a marriage in 1849 of an Allen Breed to a Mary Elizabeth Osborn (off by almost two hundred years). All three wives need to be merged into Mary Sargent.

Yes, Jillaine.  Thank you! and thank you to Joe Cochoit, too.  I have read the article, and I agree that the evidence is very convincing.  Mary was a Sargent.

When I created that profile, I obviously neglected to do a thorough search of the existing research (booo).
