I have been looking for source info for the maiden name of Margaret Tyler's mother Mary, wife of John Tyler, her father.
It is often stated that the parents of the Margaret Tyler (who married William Waugh) were John Tyler and Mary Downman. Although there is good source information that Margaret's parents were John Tyler and Mary, as evidenced by John Tyler's will, I have seen no evidence of Mary's maiden name.
Further, it is often stated that Mary Downman's parents were William Downman and Million Travers. However, neither the will of William nor that of Million mention a Mary as a child of theirs, even though they name many if not all of their other children. I have also seen wills of the children of William and Million, and they name many brothers and sisters, but NOT a Mary.
In sum, I have seen NO evidence so far that Margaret Tyler's mother Mary was a Downman, nor any evidence that William and Million Downman had a daughter Mary.
Would appreciate any evidence anyone has, or the maiden name of Margaret Tyler's mother Mary if anyone has it.
