Looking for info/confirmation/parents/vitals for Mary SHOREY,
who is supposed to have married Peter DAVIS, 22 May 1706, in
Boston, Mass.; Was this the same Peter DAVIS who:
Peter DAVIS was b 1 May 1680 in Dover, England.
Resided in RI shortly after, and had a dau
Mary or Mercy DAVIS b 5 Oct 1706 @ ?Westerly, Wash. co., RI.
There was at least also a son Peter DAVIS Jr.
Mary (?Mercy) DAVIS m 25 Jul 1734 to Solomon HOXIE (John-Lodowick)
at Richmond, Wash. co., RI. She d 18 Mar 1797 @ S. Kingstown, RI.
-------
Several problems here. If Mercy/Mary DAVIS' b date is right:
1- She was 5 years older that Solomon HOXIE, That's rare.
She also outlived Solomon by 17 years.
2- There wasn't but 5 months between her parents marriage & her b.
3- poss b Boston, 5 Aug 1706. May be an O.S. date error,
ie: 8th mo O.S. is Oct. Perhaps she was b 1716? otherwise she
was 45 when son Solomon Jr was born.
