About Joseph Chapman

It is possible the marriage date was Feb 23, 1707 and not recorded until April 23. It has also been recorded as being on Feb 5th, but this could be the date they received their marriage certificate.

There is confusion about whether Joseph married Mary or Mercy or two woman (one with each name) or if these names refer to the same person. They could be sisters. One source says Joseph's brother John married Mercy. There seems to be 2 birth dates for what might be two different Mercy/Mary Wentworths in 1692 and 1686.
