    Probably a step-daughter of Thomas Lightfoot. Mary, widow (2nd wife) of Thomas Jackson of East Marlborough, PA, made her will 28 Oct 1729, and it was probated 20 Dec, 1729. She stated that she was now "at Sea aboard the Sizargh, of Whitehaven, Jeremiah Cowman, Master, Bound for Philadelphia, I now being Indisposed in Body." She either died at sea, or shortly after arriving back in America. Her half-sister Catherine (Lightfoot) Miller and her husband James Miller were also on this voyage, and Catherine also died a week after arriving in Philadelphia. It must have been a very difficult voyage.
    In her will, Mary Wiley mentions her stepsons, Samuel, Isaac, and Benjamin Jackson; her brother, John Wiley, in Pennsylvania (to whom she leaves 40); and her step-daughter, Ruth Martin, in County Cavan, Ireland (to whom she bequeaths 20). Witnesses to the will were: James Miller, Lambert Emerson and Robert White. In the accounts of her estate is a record of "Cash Pd Nathan Cowman," 3.4.4. Executors included her step-brothers Michael, Samuel and Jacob Lightfoot.,
