    Mercy Seers is identified as daughter of Tamsen Mayo in John Sunderland's will. Can't be a confusion with Mary because she is separately listed as Mary Bangs. However, she is not listed at all in Source:Genealogical and family history of the state of Maine like other children. See the discussion on Person:Mary Sunderland (10) about the possibility that that Mary and this Mercy could be the same person.
