Sandra Weber : death date & place

Mark: Mary and her husband arrived at the founding of Southold on Long Island, supported as part of New Haven Colony (before it was amalgamated into the Connecticut Colony). The Dutch already had two thriving settlements to the east (later renamed Albany and Manhattan) with many surrounding villages becoming nascent towns. The English and Dutch had a complex relationship both in the Old World and New World, being both trade partners and competitors. In 1664, the English Empire captured Dutch possessions originally purchased from the natives, renaming New Netherlands as New York. A vast shire was organized to govern all Dutch and English settlements in the domain; the Shire of York included all of Long Island. Mary died in Southold, Shire of York, Province of New York, English Empire, (which later became Southold, Suffolk County, New York, USA), probably at the family home near Horton's Point.
