Research Notes (source comments, unreliable information)

Mary may have been born in Thornbury Township, Chester County, Province of Pennsylvania.

John and Mary may have been married 26 Mar 1711 in Chester County, PA, USA.

Her obituary states that Mary died in the "one hundred and second year of her age." Either this is wrong by a year, or the recorded birth year is incorrect. It goes on to state that she retained her memory and sight to the end, and spun and knit to within nine weeks of her death. She was buried in the friends burying ground in Concord.
