Mary was born on 7 Aug 1774 in Tiverton, Newport, Rhode Island, died before 30 Sep 1844 in Galesburg, Kalamazoo, Michigan, and was buried in Riverside Cemetery, Charleston Twp, Kalamazoo, Michigan

Mary's second husband was Joseph Cory, son of Philip Cory and Comfort Hicks of Tiverton. He died sometime in January of 1830 at Edinburgh, Saratoga, New York. The land they owned was along the river that ran through Edinburgh.

Thomas Corey suspects Joseph was buried there and his grave was not relocated when the river was dammed to create a reservoir.

Mary and a number of her children along with a brother moved to Michigan after the estate of Joseph was settled. The estate records can be found at Balston Spa, the county seat for Saratoga County.
