    This report includes a discussion of evidence relating to the parents of Mary Steele, which are variously given either as Samuel Steele and his wife Mary Boosey or Samuel's older brother John Steele and his wife Mercy Warner."

    "It is inferred that Mary, wife of John Thomson, died before March 1, 1706-7, as in the deed of that date conveying lands to his son Samuel, he reserved to himself the life use of part of the premises but made no mention of his wife."

    She died before 6 October 1696 when her husband remarried. Mr. Starr did not account for the second wife.
