Sixth Generation

437. Mary COMSTOCK47 was born on 22 September 1751 in Smithfield, Providence County, Rhode Island.164 She died in 1831 at the age of 80 in Richmond, Cheshire County, New Hampshire. She was buried in Sunny Side Cemetery, Grafton County, New Hampshire.

Mary married 22 Mar 1770 to Rufus Whipple. This family is not traced in the Comstock books but online trees, and the New Hampshire vital records, show Mary and Rufus Whipple having children in the 1790's which would mean she is NOT the Mary who married Uriah Cook, 6 Mar 1786. Mary Whipple is buried with Rufus Whipple, 1831. Uriah Cook married a very different Mary Comstock - possibly the widow of Mary's brother Aaron.
