I was very interested to read Sandra Ferguson's posting of Jan 25, 2008. She gives a very convincing argument for the maiden name of Mary(b 1689/1690), wife of James Wright(b 1671). This includes the statement: "Mary and James Wright were also listed in the relatives column for her brother, Thomas Bowater's daughter's marriage." I would very much like to see a copy of that marriage record. Could Sandra or someone please tell me the name of Thomas Bowater's daughter, and where the marriage took place? It does not seem to be listed in Hinshaw's "Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy," nor have I found it in any Hopewell records filmed by the LDS Library. I have also been unable to find the Philadelphia MM records for Mary's certificate of receival in 1706 and her condemnation in 1708/1709 for her marriage. I assume they have not been filmed and can be found only in a book. Please, what is the source for those events? I descend from James and Mary Wright through their daughter, Mary, who married Josiah Ballinger. I'm still working on things, but will share what I have.
