Mary Byram, dtr of Ebenezer Byram and Hannah Hayward, was born in Bridgewater, Massachusetts, 14 April 1728[1]

Ebenezer went to New Jersey about 1744 leading a new settlement[2]

Mary, born 1728, married (1) Aaron Thompson and (2) Isaac Harlow.[3]


"Isaac Harlow b. 21 Apr 1726 Plymouth; m. Mary (Byram Thompson, wid. of Aaron, and daughter of Capt. Ebenezer Byram of Bridgewater."[4]

Coincidence ?

A Mary Harlow died 1 May 1802 ae 74, part of the Shaker Colony at Mount Lebanon, New York.[5] b. about 1728

An Isaac Harlow died there 25 July 1804 ae 78.[5] b. about 1728.

This could be total coincidence and needs some further verification.

I've looked at this again, after I disconnected the Kellys and looked at some Ancestry trees. This has been merged a couple of times and I suspect what happened is that Mary Byram from Massachusetts/New Jersey got merged with Mary Byram who married Kelly and Curtis. I was able to locate a profile for the Mary Byram who married William Kelly and attached him. Thomas Curtis is a problem still.

Mayme and Joy. This is a rather impossible situation. Mary was b in Massachusetts, moved to New Jersey with family. New Jersey Mary would not have been married to William Kelley. Further she seems to not have married Thomas Curtis. Do you have other information on these people? Objections to my disconnecting Mary from these two men.

Do you have more information on Thomas Curtis? I'm am attempting to clear up duplicated Thomases.
