About Mary 'Marie' Wilder

In 1686, Nathaniel Wilder of Lancaster was licenced " for retailing of Wine, Beer,Ale and Cider, Rum ect" He continued to be the only inn keeper until his wife, Mary, retained the business.

"The Birth, Marriage and Death Registers, Church Records and Epitaphs of LANCASTER, MASSACHUSETTS. 1643-1850" edited by HENRY S. NOURSE, A. M., list the following events:

Listed under Marriages: Nathaniel Wilder & Mary his wife, 24 . 11 . 73 (1673) Lancaster, MA (Only marriage listed for Nathaniel Wilder, before his death in 1704)

Marie the daughter of Thomas Sawyer and Marie his wife : was borne the 4=11 mon 1652 (which translates to Jan 4 1652/53, March was the first month in the Julian calander which makes January the 11th month) Lancaster, MA

Listed under Births: Martha of Tho. & Mary Sawyer, 10 . 6 . 73 (which translates to December 6, 1673) Lancaster, MA

Also, Listed under Marriages: Philip Goss and Mary Prescott, at Concord, March 29, 1690.

I have found no marriages of Philip Goss to any Sawyers. And Ebenezer Wilder did marry a Mary (who died in 1733/34 at the age of 54, making her birth approx 1680) in 1702, this is more likely Mary and Nathaniel's son Ebenezer.

So as you can see Mary was married to this Nathaniel Wilder, not Martha. Mary did have a younger sister Martha. Was not married to Ebenezer Wilder or Phillip Goss. If I get enough concurrence, we can correct the profiles.
