Her father, Richard, is said to have settled in Dutchess County, NY but the Jones Book does not say when. The Van Benschoten Book says Richard arrived in Dutchess in 1774, meaning that Mary was born in Dutchess.

From the book "Concerning the Van Bunschoten or Van Benschoten Family in America", pg 132: "Grandmother was a most gentle and sweet-spirited woman - one of the Marys of the gospel."

Continuing on page 134: Her husband "laid away in 'Swago church-yard....Grandmother Mary lived thereafter with her daughter Elizabeth Doughty and died Jan 31, 1841. She also lay in Oswego ground; but after the removal of that church to La Grange, she and Henry were transferred to the new church-yard."
