Is there a project that covers these pre-1700 people? Wallis/Phippen

+6 votes

I want to help contribute to the deep genealogy on our shared tree.

1.) Geographical region and time period:   Essex and Plymouth, MA

2.) Names and dates:   Mary Phippen who married John Wallis (Wallis-375) There are three profiles for the wife of John Wallis (after a merger) who all appear to refer to the same person:

Mary Shepard Wallis 1638-1690 (Shepard-453) (sources all refer to ancestry trees)

Mary Phippen Wallis bef 1644 aft 29 Apr 169 (Phippen-30)  (this profile has sources and has a biography)

Mary Shepard Phippen Wallis about 1640-aft 1678 (Phippen-160) (unsourced)

3.) Source(s) for my information on them:   My sources match Phippen-30 and I have additional secondary sources on marriages from two articles in the NEHGR:

George Freeman Sanborn Jr, “Mary (Phippen) (Wallis) Black,” The New England Historic and Genealogical Register, 153, p 291-292, July 1999.

Nathaniel Lane Taylor and John Fipphen, “Another Husband for Mary (Phippen) (Morgan) (Black),” The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, 160, p 99-100, Apr 2006

I was hoping to suggest a merger for these three profiles (but I am not a profile manager for any of them.) Can you tell me if there is a WikiTree project that would cover these people? If so, how do I get in touch with the project members to coordinate and collaborate on merging the profiles?

If you are still working on Phippen, I might be able to help. Some of my ancestors were Phippens and I might be able so help you out.

I too am interested in this fascinating ancestral line and resolving questions regarding Mary Phippen. I would look forward to assisting in research to improve her profile in collaboration with Profile Managers and possibly as a "Name Study Project." I am a direct descendant of John Wallis II and Mary Phippen via two different branches, i.e. through two of their children: son James Wallis, who married Martha A. Stanford, and daughter Dorcas Wallis, who married John Lane. Each of these two "twigs" intersects with the same Lane branch about 120 years apart. Interesting that another daughter of John and Mary (Phippen) Wallis II, namely Elizabeth, married (1701/02) Joseph Morgan, son of Samuel Morgan (and 1st wife Elizabeth Dixie), the same Samuel Morgan to whom mother Mary (Phippen) Wallis married eight or so years earlier. That means that Elizabeth married her step-brother. Elizabeth and her two children were killed by Indians in the Purpooduck (now Cape Elizabeth, Maine) Massacre (August 10, 1703). At the time of Elizabeth's marriage to Joseph Morgan, mother Mary (Phippen) (aka Wallis, Morgan) had already been married to a 3rd husband, John Black, for a couple years, Mary's three marriages occurring about 2 years after each husband's death. I do not see any sources, however, that support a 4th marriage to a husband with surname Shepard, but this should be ruled-in (and merged) or ruled-out, since this vital info. appears in a WikiTree profile. Thank you for your question.
