I wonder if Richard Johnson doesn't in fact have the date of death of
Mary incorrectly stated. He mentions that Robert Nelson, in a letter
to his brother-in-law in New England, states that his wife misses her
brother and her son "Jacke" [i.e., John Nelson of Boston]. Was John1
Nelson in Boston as early as 1669? Probably not, as he was born 1653
or 1654. So the letter may indicate that Mary Temple Nelson actually
lived beyond 1669.
