Looking for more information about widow Mary Catlin, who married Solomon Buell (b. 1748)

+3 votes
The various primary sources about the Buell family and the families of Litchfield, CT merely list Solomon Buell Jr.'s wife as "the widow Mary Catlin", no birth date, no additional information. As I understand it, Catlin would have been the LNAB of her first husband, meaning that Mary's LNAB is unknown.

The issue is further confused by the fact that Solomon's older brother Salmon married Margaret Catlin, whose genealogy is better known.

Does anyone have additional information about Mary (Unknown) Catlin Buell, or know where I might go to find it?

I thought to look in the Barbour Collection for Litchfield to see if there were any Catlins married to Marys in the right time frame a Theodore m. Mary Goodwin, only he didn't die, but went to NY and kept having children. I also did a similar search at Ancestry to see if there were any Catlins in Conn who died about 1772. Nothing appropriate, death or probate wise.

I'm not sure how complete the Ancestry probate records are. You might look for Catlin probate records in LItchfield or at the Conn Archives. But then the first husband was probably young, and had little to leave so nothing got into the records.
