See this G2G discussion about alternative claims that she was also the spouse of Nicholas Jacob and John Beale in Hingham.
What's now clear is that two Mary Gilmans emigrated to Massachusetts:
Mary Gilman, b abt 1600; m abt 1625 Nicholas Jacob; emigrated with him in 1633 and settled in Hingham; after Nicholas died she m2 John Beale. She died in 1681. She was the sister of the emigrating Edward Gilman.
Mary Gilman, bpt 1615 in Hingham, Norfolk, England, daughter of Edward Gilman, the immigrant. She married in Hingham in 1636 John Folsom, emigrated with him and her parents in 1638, settled initially in Hingham, then they all went to Exeter, NH; she died in 1691.
She was christened 6 AUG 1615 in Hingham, Norfolk, England [ADD REF TO ACTUAL BAPT RECORD]
She, along with her husband and her parents, departed from Gravesend, Kent England on Gravesend, Kent, England, arriving Boston, MA 10 AUG 1638
According to the Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire, Husband John Folsom died in 1681, and Mary was still alive.
[the following needs examination. IF the following is Edward the immigrant, it should remain here as he is Gilman-115's brother, not father.]
