Mary (Stuart) Gaulding was a US Southern Colonist.
According to Dr. Gaulden's book Gaulden...A Seven Hundred Year History.., Alexander Gaulden "son of Anne Stuart and John Gaulden of New Kent Co died Dec. 1752, and James Stuart was given custody of one of his minor children. This would support the assumption that his mother's maiden name was Stuart. Perhaps James Stuart was Anne's brother, thus the court ruled in favor of the great-uncle (James Stuart) rather than the uncle (John Gaulden II)"
