Biographical information at this source on the various Thaddeus MacCarthys of Boston indicates the difficulty of telling them apart in the public records. The find a grave memorial for Thaddeus MacCarthy who married Mary Greenough and died in 1729 indicates a large age discrepancy between what the biographical information in the link above says and what is noted as being inscribed on the gravestone (34yrs, 6mos) More research needs to be done to determine whether there has been a misreading of the headstone or confusion between multiple Thaddeus MacCarthys in the Boston area in the late 17th - early 18th centuries.
