(Father-NOT) Birth4 May 1782Josiah Hayward Jr. could not have been the father of Otis Hayward who was born on 4 May 1782 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts (Continental Congress). Both the History of Bridgewater source and the Hayward source reported that Otis was the son of Josiah Hayward Jr. of Bridgewater, although each identified a different mother. Josiah Jr. died in 1773, nine years before Otis was born in 1782, so a father-son relationship is clearly impossible. The History of Bridgewater source noted his mother as Mary Dunham and the Hayward source noted her as Molly Sever. Another review of the evidence indicates to this researcher that Otis was actually the son of a yet another Josiah Hayward and his wife Dinah (__?__) Muxham.7,8,1

Mary Hayward1

b. 27 November 1727, d. before 15 August 1736
Father*Nathaniel Hayward1 b. c 1690
Mother*Hepzibah Alden1 b. c 1696
Birth*27 November 1727Mary Hayward was probably born on 27 November 1727 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England). Although both the Boston Birth resource and the Alden resource noted her date of birth as 27 DEC 1727, it is certain that she was born before her baptism on 30 Nov 1727. The Boston Births resource also spelled or transcribed her surname as "Howard."2,3
Baptism30 November 1729She was baptized on 30 November 1729 at New North Church, Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).1,2
Death*before 15 August 1736She probably died before 15 August 1736. The Alden resource listed only one daughter named Mary and the records of the New North Church in Boston list two baptisms seven years apart for what is believed to be two different daughters to Nathaniel and Hepzibah Hayward named Mary. It that is an accurate conclusion, the first Mary would likely have died before the second Mary was born in 1736.2
(Sister) Deathbefore 23 October 1803After her death, Mary Hayward's parents had another daughter they also named Mary. The Alden resource listed only one of the Marys and it is believed, incorrectly, combined their baptismal information and then attributed marriage, child and death information to the wrong Mary.2
