I'm posting here to share this latest info, You probably already have!! My hunch about William Mead seems to be correct. William T. Mead was married to Ann Furnald and died in Quincy in 1848. Ann was born abt 1819 and may be a sister of Bryant Fernald. Ann and William had one daughter Mary Ann born 4 AUG 1843 in Quincy, Norfolk, MA. I found her in Worldconnect thru the rootsweb web site.
