Mary's mother should be Judith (Unknown) Shatswell (Unknown-82081) rather than [mother unknown]. The MacDonald article in the Register makes it clear that Mary was Judith's daughter.

There seems no basis for children Thomas Emery and Eleanor Emery, doesn't jive with the text, probably should be removed.

Shatswell-126 and Shatswell-1 appear to represent the same person because: the 1694 death is correct.
