Looking for the parents of Mary 'Molly' Carpenter who married 12 Jan 1782 in Gorham, Cumberland County, Maine Joseph Richardson (1763-1836), she was born 25 May 1754 and died 23 Sep 1846 in Baldwin, Cumberland County, Maine.
This link at the Library of Congress, indicates that Mary Carpenter, wife of Joseph Richardson, was born in or near Marblehead, Massachusetts.
Thanks for the quick informative reply. I was aware of the reference in the Richardson genealogy but have not been able to locate her there or confirm that statement. One of those small brick walls.
