Mary (Scott) Boyd was born on 5 Oct 1767 in Baltimore, Baltimore, Maryland. Her parents were Joseph Scott (1737 - ~1799) and Ann (Hayward) Scott (1740 - 1835).

Mary died on 6 Nov 1797 in Prince George's, Maryland, United States aged 30.


Mary Scott, Joseph’s first wife, was born into a Quaker family and her birth was recorded at the Blackrock Mills Meeting near Baltimore.

Later the family moved to the Indian Springs Quaker Meeting in Anne Arundel County, Maryland a few years before her marriage.

Mary married Joseph Boyd on 18 August 1791 in Anne Arundel County.[1] Mary married outside the Quaker faith and must have been disowned by the faithful.

She died on 6 November, 1797 while giving birth to her namesake daughter, Mary, leaving six children under the age of six. She was only 30 years old.[2]
