  1. Benson, Richard H. The Nash Family of Weymouth, Massachusetts. (Boston: Newbury Street Press, 1998)

    Mary Nash, has been identified as a daughter of James and Alice Nash since her husband, Moses Belcher, was a witness to a deed of James Nash on 22 May 1666, the day before his weeding. [Suffolk County Deeds, 5:82; Bartlett, "The Belcher Families," Register, 60 (1906):130.] Also Mary transferred her church membership to Braintree, Massachusetts from Weymouth, Massachusetts on 30 May 1686, which indicates she was originally from Weymouth, and thus must have been a daughter of the only Nash family there. [Gilbert Nash, page 25.]

    Mary married Moses Belcher of Braintree on 23 May 1666. [Samuel A. Bates, "Braintree Records," Register, 37 (1883):346.] Moses was born about 1635, the son of Gregory and Catherine Belcher. [Register, 60:130.]

    Moses wrote in his will three days before his death, mentioning his wife, daughter Mary Bass, other daughters, son Moses (then under age) to have the whole homestead, brother Alexander Marsh and cousin Joseph Belcher overseers, wife sole executor. [Suffolk County Probate, 8:48.] He died at Braintree 5 July 1691. [Samuel Bates, Records of the Town of Braintree, 1670-1733 (Boston, 1886).] On 30 December 1707, Mary Belcher, widow, and Anna Belcher, spinster, Moses Belcher, Joseph Bass, Ichabod Allen and Elizabeth his wife, Jabez Athern and Katherine his wife, and Joseph Brackett and Mehitable his wife, being all the children of Moses and Mary Belcher, conveyed land of said Moses, deceased.
