Mike, could you please contact me on my aol email address genealogysix.
I am interested in finding original sources for the maternal lines of the Atherton's.
My interest currently is in wife of Humphrey Atherton.
Yes I have seen the references to her name as Mary Wales, but where did that originate. I can't seem to find any document, christening or death record that lists her name as Mary Wales. Tried to find a transcription of her will, but no luck, and she is not mentioned on the tombstone or in Humphrey's will by name.
I did find the NEHGSR volume 32 that gave excerpts from the will, but that wasn't much help.
