Priscilla (Unknown), the wife of Reuben Wing, is called "Huldah Priscilla Burgess" on a FamilySearch profile that says she was born in 1746 at Sandwich, Massachusetts,[1] and cites only a FindAGrave memorial that does not make any reference to the name "Hulda" nor cite any source for her claimed birth name of Burgess, which gives a birth date of 1746 (at Sandwich), and has a photo of a modern gravestone at Wayne, Maine, that includes only the name "Priscilla Wing" with a death date of 10 Aug 1811 and a death place of Wayne.[2] The claim is repeated on a number of profiles, none of which cite any documentary evidence.


Priscilla (Unknown) married Reuben Wing.[2] The marriage occurred before the birth of their first known child, on 23 Apr 1773, at an unknown location.[3]


According to a modern gravestone in Wayne, Maine, Priscilla (Unknown) Wing died on 10 Aug 1811.[2]

Unless a primary source (or at least a reliable secondary source) can be found for "Burgess," her LNAB should probably be changed to "Unknown."
