Lydia was born in 1758. She was the daughter of Zachariah Perry and Hannah Blish. She married about 1785, Capt. Thomas Wing, son of Simeon Wing. He sailed up the Kennebec River to Wayne, Maine and built the first mills there. [1] She passed away at Livermore, Maine [2]

Research Notes

NEHGR says Lydia was the second wife of Thomas Wing. Conway Wing says she was the first wife, and Thomas Wing married Meribah Bowman after Lydia died.

The 1785 marriage date seems too late. Is it wrong?

Her death date is assumed, considering the date of Thomas Wing marriage to his 2nd wife (Maribah Bowman) on 31 Jan 1795 at Falmouth, Barnstable, Massachusetts.
