From: Richard G. Smith<rgsmith.gen -at- juno.com > Subject: Mary WHITNEY Date: Wed, 2 Apr 1997 16:31:15 PST Hi, I am thoroughly confused.! Can someone help me? According to Bond's History of Watertown, Page 645, Line 75, Mary WHITNEY, dob 21 Apr 1694, married John FISKE, Jr. on 7 Jun 1711. This shows her as the daughter of Joseph WHITNEY and Martha BEACH. According to "The BEMIS History and Genealogy, being an Account in Greater Part of the Descendants of Joseph BEMIS of Watertown, Mass", Page 3, by Colonel Thomas Waln-Morgan Draper, Mary WHITNEY, DOB 30 Sep 1689, married John FISKE, Jr. on 7 Jun 1711. This shows her as the daughter of Samuel WHITNEY and Mary BEMIS. Which Mary is correct? Draper's book was published about 50 years later than Bond's. Is his information more accurate? Does anyone know? Can you cite another source for me? I sure would appreciate some help. Dick Smith rgsmith.gen -at- juno.com
