About Mary Vail

Mary is the great-aunt of Benjamin Franklin, the noted American Stateman.

ll information on this family comes from LDS files, which are many times inaccurate. There is some confusion here on Jeremiah's wife. One source lists only Mary Foulger as wife and says she was born in 1622. Another source says he was married to a "Catherine". I believe Jeremiah was married twice, and all children born before 1650 were from his first wife, and children born after 1660 belong to his second wife. I am just not sure which is his first wife. Until I have more information, I am going to assume that Catherine was his first wife, and Mary his second. I do have a marriage date of 24 May 1660, so I am going to assume that the marriage date to Mary. Of course I could be combining two families here and there are two Jeremiah Vail's, with separate wives. I just found a listing that says Jeremiah was married 4 times!
