Mary may have been born in Groton, Connecticut about 1760 to John and Mary Jeffery. The only evidence we have to connect her to Groton is a copy of a land record at Groton which has been handed down in the family. She may be the Mary, daughter of Mary Jeffery who had children baptized at First Church, Groton about 1761. (Barbour collection of church records).
One suggestion for possible parents would be the John Jeffrey and Mary Howland who were married at Cornwall, Connecticut in 1761. According to this source John and Mary had a family of several children born at Cornwall, Connecticut, but no daughter Mary listed in the family. Cornwall is a considerable distance from Groton.
The family surname has been spelled in several different ways.
She was married to Roswell Wright of Coventry, Connecticut. They had 3 children - a son born and died the same day and twin daughters - Polly and Betsy Wright. Mary (Jeffrey) Wright lived only a shot time after the birth of the twins.
She was buried in the Silver Street Cemetary in Coventry, Connecticut at age 28. in 1787. This sets her birth year at about 1759. There are two Jeffery/Jeffers connections buried close to her: Michel Williams Seabury Jeffers Gore and Briggs Jeffers, son of Nathaniel Jeffers.
