Notes

  • Mary, widow of John (1) married a second time the Rev. Ezekiel (HOLLIMAN) and after their marriage, her new husband changed her daughter's name from Maribah to Renewed.
  • After the death of HOLLIMAN, 17 Sep. 1659, Mary SWEET HOLLIMAN returned to Salem where she died 31 July 1681. The death of John SWEET (1) and the subsequent marriage to Ezekiel (HOLLIMAN) doubtless hastened their removal to Warwick, known at the time as Shawmuch.
  • She was no doubt a sister of Stukeley WESTCOTT, the immigrant ancestor of that family. Her daughter, Meribah (Renewed) [Holliman] GEREARDY claimed to be cousin to Amos WESTCOTT, Stukeley's son. Also, both families moved at the same time from 1) Salem, MA to 2) Providence, RI to 3) Warwick, RI.
