About Mary Burnap (Cooper)

Mary Pearson/Pierson was NOT the wife of Thomas Burnet. His wife is Mary UNKNOWN. (Cooper has not been proven, either.) Mary Pearson happens to be my 9th great aunt on a totally unrelated line. She married a Thomas BURNAP, not our Thomas BURNET. Thomas Burnap was the son of Robert and Ann/Agnes (Miller) Burnap and he married has "Thomas Burnitt" on 3 Dec 1663, Marlboro, MA to Mary Pearson, dau. of John Pearson & Maudlin (____). Because his marriage has him listed as "Burnitt", he's often been confused with our Thomas BURNET...who, according to all the research I've done the past 30 years, never set foot in Massachusetts...he was strictly in New York. Mary Pearson was named in her father's will...."I give unto My Daughter Marey Burnap...." (filed in Essex Co., MA).

We know for sure that her first name was Mary, but while it possibly COULD be Mary Cooper, there is no solid proof. The point is, Mary Pearson married Thomas Burnap who is NOT the same person as Thomas Burnet.
