Removed Martha Morley (Wright) as the wife of Thomas. I'm not sure how this relationship was created, but it was done in error. I don't know what Martha's maiden name was, but I found a book called New England Marriages prior to 1700 that lists Thomas's marriage to Martha, and on the same page lists Martha Wright's marriage to Thomas Marlow/Morley. (If this link doesn't paste correctly, check the references tab).
