Starr and Goodwin, say in Various ancestral lines of James Goodwin etc. that Mary Blakeman, daughter of James Blakeman and his first wife was born 25 Apr 1661; m. 1st George Searles and 2nd Samuel Pitman.[1]

She was called Mary Searles in her father's 1689 will. So she was definitely wife of George Searles. However, George died in 1706. Samuel Pitman was b. 1691/2, so was 30 years younger than Mary. Samuel Pitman married Mary Groome 23 Nov 1716. This is a mistake of identity between half siblings.[2]

Mary Blackman/Blakeman, daughter of James Blackman and _____ Stiles, was born 25 April 1661.[3]

The wrong mother is attached, it should be James' 1st wife ______ Stiles. See the bio and the bio of her father. I'm going to make the correction.
