Mary was born about 1710 and passed away in 1802.

Based on information found on Mary's FindAGrave Memorial site[1], she married James McClellan in Topsham, Maine in 1733. It also shows a broken headstone memorializing her birth in 1710 (not 1729) and her death in 1802. A birth in the year 1729 would make the marriage illegal to say the least. The FindAGrave site reports children Martha and James. A source found in Family Search files is a baptismal registry listing three children: Jane, baptized 1 Nov 1753,, Mary, baptized 25 Nov 1753, and James, baptized 7 Jul 1757. The town where this took place was not easily identified.[2][3]

Patterson-8256 and Patterson-14 appear to represent the same person because: same grave, same spouse, same child
