She may not be a daughter of Mary Wells Stockett Yeats at all, but a relative of George Yeats. Mary was born somewhere between 1636 (probably not earlier) and 1642 (probably not later), married Thomas Stockett somewhere between 1660 and 1665, and married George Yeats after Stockett died in 1671.

There is no place in that time frame for a daughter born in 1653.
