Mary Wolcott

(1622 - September 16, 1689)

Mary Wolcott was born in Tolland, England 1622/3. On June 25, 1646 Mary and Job Drake marry, probably in Windsor, Connecticut. They both arrived at Boston in 1630 on the “Mary and John”. Job was 7, not sure who he arrived with. Mary was 8 and came with her family. A coincidence the couple arrived in America on the same ship. Mary’s family ends up in Connecticut by 1636. An even bigger coincidence, this husband and wife die on the exact same day: September 16, 1689. Their double headstone is at FindAGrave in the Palisado Cemetery, Windsor, Connecticut: Mrs. Marih Drake, Mr Job Drake.
