About Mary Woody

D.A.R. Book gives Mary Laughlin and four of her daughters as Patriotic Heroines.


Birth: Sep. 4, 1717 New Garden Chester County Pennsylvania, USA Death: May 21, 1795 Orange County North Carolina, USA

The daughter of James Lindley and Eleanor Parke of County Carlow, Ireland.

Mary was a Quaker and according to the New Garden Monthly Meeting minutes, Chester Co, PA pg, 280-282, Mary was disowned by the Quakers for marrying out of unity, ( marrying a non Quaker). Apparently, her husband John converted to the Religious Society of Friends (commonly known as Quakers) upon moving to North Carolina where he and his wife found a local community willing to accept them into the fold.

They had the following children: Eleanor, Hannah, Mary, Robert, James, Samuel, Joshua, Joseph, William, Ruth, and John IV.
