    ["Records of the Nemasket Cemetery, Middleborough" in Source:Mayflower Descendant, p. 15:8-9, gives the record for Lt. John Tomson but the installment ends after Lydia Tomson, and the next installment, p. 15:100, starts up with surname Tinkham, so the range where Mary would be listed appears to have been inadvertently skipped.]

    "d. 3/21/1714 in 88th year" Born between 3/22/1626 to 3/20/1627. Absolutely no earlier than May 1624 (9 months after end of parent separation) nor later than 22 May 1627 (named in cattle division, see Source:Mayflower Descendant, p. 1:148).

    Mary died 21 Mar 1714, in the eighty-eighth year of her age and was buried with her husband.
    [Assume this is 21 Mar 1714/15, so to be age 87, between 22 Mar 1626/27 to 20 Mar 1627/28. Since born before cattle division 22 May 1627, if followed strictly, this limits birth to the 2 months from 22 Mar to 22 May 1627.]
