  • ID: I2765
  • Name: *Mary Yates
  • Given Name: *Mary
  • Surname: Yates 1 2 3 4 5 6 4 7 8 9 10 11 12
  • Sex: F
  • Birth: in Massachusetts [poss]
  • Death: Aft 1702
  • Note:

    Much research needs to be done by someone to find the maiden name of Mary "Yates" Higgins Whitehead.

    She appears (to me) to have been a very strong woman. She raised 1 child from her first marriage, 2 children from the 1st marriage of Richard Higgins and ten children from her marriage with Richard Higgins (thirteen children in all). They achieved at least two major moves as a married couple in a day and age when it would have been rather rough conditions for setting up house.

    She lived through the death of three husbands which could not have been easy. It appears that the son of her first marriage died at an early age leaving a widow and a small son and once again Mary Yates Higgins is there for someone. My hopes are that 'someone' was there for her when she was of need!

    She appears to have been much loved as her son Thomas (in his will) says of her, "My will is that my honored mother, Mary Whitehead, shall have and quietly possess the Parlor or Rooms where she now lives and also one-third part of the orchard during her natural life."

    DEATH: [Prob. About 70 Years Old]
