Hi, there is a Massachusetts Project. I wouldn't worry too much about Mary as long as she remains Unknown.

My general advice:

In general, feel free to update pre-1700 profiles that need proper sourcing and more information. Ask yourself: Does what I'm adding add value to the profile? Always, always source your updates/changes/facts/statements. Before you make major changes (changes in relationships, or vital statistics) make sure you attempt to contact the profile managers. It's always polite to contact managers if you're going to do a major overhaul.

Nice sources.
