About Mercy Stanton

According to the 1715 will of Job Babcock, Mercy Babcock was UNMARRIED, named as Mercy Babock, unlike his married daughters identified by their married name. This date of birth for Mercy is unlikely as is her being the first wife of Tobias Brand. I disconnected her as the mother of Rebecca Brand born 1710. 9-11-2016
