Birth: 1658
Death: Oct. 8, 1738
Barnstable County
Massachusetts, USA

However, her father is known to be Henry Taylor of Barnstable, information that comes from the Will of widow Mary Haughton, wherein it says: "To Mary Taylor ye Daughter of Henry Taylor twenty Shillins". The will is found printed in the Mayflower Descendant 18:134-5 (1916), and is dated Jan 19, 1686.

"Cape Cod Series, Vol II, History and Genealogy of the Mayflower Planters and first Comers to Ye Olde Colonie" by Leon Clark Hills; Hills Pub. Co., Washington D.C.; 1941, pg. 83, also lists Mary as the daughter of Henry Taylor of Barnstable. So does [Freeman 2:
