Re: Phillip Elliot/Mary Short
Genealogical Gleanings in England, by Henry F. Waters, 1907, reprinted 1969, page 298;
Edward Payson, perhaps a brother of Giles, of Roxbury as early as 1637, admitted freeman of Mass. May 13, 1640, married August 20, 1640, Ann Park, daughter of William and Martha [Holgrove] Park. She died Sept. 10, 1641 and he married 2nd. Jan. 1, 1641/2, Mary Eliot, daughter of Philip Eliot and a niece the Apostle Eliot. She died his widow March 26, 1697, aged 76.
There is a manuscript genealogy of the Payson Family by the laate Rev. Abner Morse, A.M. in the library of the New England Historical Genealogy Society per Mr. Waters in 1907.
Surely interested descendants can order a copy of those pages NEHGS in Boston, MA.
