Brown-43858 and Brown-70464 are not ready to be merged because: I am working on the family of Thomas Browne of Concord, MA (My husband is a descendant.) I have Mary Brown born to Boaz and Abial in Stow, MA June 6, 1686, double-checked from Stow Vital Records. I am pretty certain she is the woman married to Joseph Fairbanks on Apri 21, 1718, although she is a little old (32) (Lancaster MA Vital Records V1p.17.) Her brothers married two Fairbanks also-- there was extensive contact between the two families in this time period, and between the Fairbanks of Dedham and the Browns of the previous generation. If Mary Brown was born in 1686, it's highly unlikely she died in 1791 as per Brown-43858 since she would be 105 y.o. What do you think? do you have more sources to corroborate or explain? I can't find a death date for Mary in vital records of Harvard MA (where she and Dea. Joseph lived) or in Lancaster or Stow.
