About Mercy Avery (Williams)

1. Some say Mercy, daughter of William II and Margaret (Cooke) Williams, w as Isaac's wife but if so her paents would have been near or in their 80 years of age when she was born! Even so the Mercy some say was Isaac's wife was probably not even his wife! That Mercy, probably the child of William III and Margaret (Morgan) Williams, married Josiah Grant Hewitt.

Creditable records identifying Isaac's wife as "Marcy" Williams indicates she was Marcy (Mercy) Williams, daughter of Thomas and Marcy (Raymond) Williams recorded herein.
