The first wife of later Witchcraft Hysteria victim Giles Corey.Mary Brite was the first wife of Giles Corey (Cory, Coree) and mother of his two daughters, Mary and Martha. It is said she is buried in Salem Graveyard. She was part of the Quaker population, I believe. I don't know if this is the correct graveyard or not.

I have found Mary listed under the spelling of her other name. I tell you this so you can look under Mary Corey and find her information.
