This message is concerning the Benjamin Burgess (1708 - 1748) who was the son of Ebenezer Burgess and Mercy Lombard.
I am desperate to know if anyone has any real sources as to who his wife Mercy really was.
I've seen Mercy Burgess, the daughter of Joseph Burgess and Thomas Bangs, and this I find to be dubious because I believe that Mercy married Judah Baker.
I've also seen Mercy Perry, the daughter Samuel Perry and Esther Taber, thus making her a descendant of both Richard Warren and John and Francis Cooke.
Since I already know I am a descendant of Richard Warren (thru his son Nathaniel) I would very much like to know if anyone has anything on the ancestry of Mercy, and if she is, in fact, the daughter of Samuel Perry and Esther Taber.
Any help is appreciated.
