    'For Mary a birth date in the 1650's can be inferred.'

    Birth year estimated based on birth dates of her children (from 1677/8 to about 1703). This puts her fairly young at the time of her first marriage, but if her marriage year is accurate, she was pregnant when married, which would explain why she would have been married that young.
