Nicholas Whitman married Mary House, who was born in Plymouth, Mass in 1738. of unknown parents. How can this be? There were only a few dozen people in that town. How did they not know who Mary had as parents? Was she found wandering aimlessly as a babe? There is no explanation. And I need one. I am frustrated that the 16 (?) people in town didn’t know.
I press onward. I will play detective. Obviously Mary had parents. Every record I research says parents unknown. *sigh*
