Find a Grave says that she died in 1718 (source attached), but the headstone is so covered with lichen that I can't read it, so I didn't change the date in her profile. Do we know where the middle name Mercy comes from?

Corrected marriage date to 1706. This was a dual date year in the old calendar, and 1706 is the modern date and accepted practice for Wikitree dates.
