Find-a-Grave gives birth date as 1718 with a photo of a weather gravestone with no writing, so date does not come from there. Since she was a middle child, her birth was more likely 1724. She was also not born in Middletown. Her family lived in Kingston, Middlesex Co. NJ.

Mary is 15 degrees from Peter Roberts, 11 degrees from Emma Smith and 12 degrees from Henry VIII of England on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
