Nathaniel Tobey was born at Sandwich, MA 1 MAR 1742/3, son of Samuel Tobey and Experience Ellis. He is said to have married first, probably at Falmouth, MA 28 NOV 1773, a wife named Mary. Does anyone have a good source for this marriage? I found this marriage at the LDS site (www.familysearch.org)
Nathaniel married second, Sandwich, Mass., 21 MAR 1782, Deborah (Gifford) Phinney. Deborah was born at Sandwich on 4 APR 1753, the daughter of Samuel Gifford and Jeneverah Walker. She married first, Falmouth, 4 JAN 1773 to Barnabas Phinney.
Barnabas Phinney was born at Barnstable, MA 31 MAR 1748, son of Zacheus Phinney and Susanna Davis.He filed marriage intentions at Falmouth, on 15 MAR 1771 to Mary Hatch.
I am wondering if Mary, the first wife of Nathaniel Tobey, was identical to Mary Hatch, the fiance of Barnabas Phinney.Mary Hatch was baptized at Falmouth, MA on 14 APR 1745, the daughter of Silas Hatch and Mary Nye.
