I think there is an issue with a woman who marries when she is 49 and then has a dozen children....

As the profile is orphaned, it is available to anyone that wants to improve this profile with sources.

It's multiple people conflated. http://dcgm.tripod.com/wright.html lists the Dorchester Co marriage:

WRIGHT, Jacob was married to Sarah MCCOTTER, daughter of Alexander MCCOTTER the 13th day of May 1756

It seems fairly obvious that this was a different Sarah McCotter from the one who married Cornelius Flin in 1721, since she's still using her maiden name here.

Still surprises me that a woman, who's first marriage is at 49 has a dozen children after her marriage.
I think the first one is probably her aunt.
