Nope, still can't connect them, I'm afraid. Mary married a Gilbert (spelled "Guilbert" on Edward's will)and was born about 1729. She had her first child about 1750/51/53 - three children, William, John and Elizabeth. Elizabeth married a Cummins or Cummings, and we're not sure who was born first, second or last, or the exact dates, either. Oh, well, it was worth a try, I say!
Oh, the thing that I don't know is: On Mary's will, she apparently could not write, but made her mark. The will said Mary M. Gilbert. Now, do you supposed that really was her middle initial (for her maiden name), or do you think the M stood for the word "mark"? I mean to ask you that before. But I have to leave very shortly for the day. Can get back to you tomorrow, Oct. 17th.
