[NOTE: * The first 5 daughters cited as children of Jonas Quimby may be from a previous marriage, and even possibly daughters of Eleamus who were later raised by his brother Jonas, due to his death; evidence is contradictory and incomplete at this time ~ Dee~]

III. Mary6 Quimby
(Captain Isaac5, Eleazer4, John3, Robert2) see detail of her family under Eleazer5 Quimby.

I don't know if this is the same Mary Quimby. But the one I know of was the daughter of Isaac Quimby of Boston. He was big in shipping. Her dates were 1745-1806-08. She married Isaac (also spelled Sewell and later Seawell). He was born ca. 1751. They had at least one son before leaving Boston and left the boy with Isaac Sowell Quimby who raised him as a Quimby. Isaac and Mary Quimby Sowell moved to Moore County, N.C. along with his brother. Story has it that they met in front of the courthouse in Carthage, N.C. and changed the spelling of the name. There are several variations. My grandmother was Lucy Seawell Fry. Both brothers had participated in the revolution and in the Boston Tea Party, and the name spelling came about to protect the family. If this cannot help you, maybe it will help someone else. I know nothing more of this Mary's ancestry. ~Judith Peele Frye~
