Surname Saturday: Is this my Mary Ransom?
I printed out a Find A Grave listing recently, for a woman named Mary Ransom (wife of Joseph) who died in 1791 and was buried in Tartia Cemetery, East Hampton. I have a Mary Ransom on my tree. My Mary was the wife of Benjamin Graves of East Haddam. That Mary would have been listed as the wife of Benjamin Graves on her tombstone, so the two women are not the same. Might her mother have been also named Mary? It's possible.
