It was first thought Mary is the daughter of James & Susan (Pope) Mills of MA. However, new evidence suggests two separate Mills families have been combined in error within some sources. It took some time to sort it out, but Mary is now believed to be a daughter of John & Susannah Mills of Cambridge, Middlesex Co MA.

This John Mills immigrated from London, England in 1630, aboard one of the ships in the Winthrop Fleet. He brought his wife Susannah and daughters Mary and Susannah. It is possible Mary and her future husband Daniel met on this voyage as Daniel also immigrated this same year.

Please Note:
At different times in history, the name of Wallen is recorded with variations such as Wallin and Walling. The passenger list of the ship "Anne", dated Jul 1623, lists Ralph's (1590-1633) surname as "Wallen". Other early records show "Wallin". To avoid confusion, my ancestors who descended from Ralph will be shown as Wallen.
