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

If that is an accurate conclusion, the second Mary would have been the one to live until 1803.2

b. 28 April 1720, d. 29 June 1794
Relationship1st cousin 1 time removed of John Bolton
Father*Josiah Hayward1 b. 1 Mar 1688, d. 4 Feb 1764
Mother*Sarah Kinglsey1 b. c 1691, d. 14 May 1738
Birth*28 April 1720Nathan Hayward was born on 28 April 1720 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).1,2,3
Occupation*He was a stonecutter and carver of gravestones. He developed, after an earlier geometric style, a design involving wings which appeared to sprout from the ears of his skulls. This design had further developed by 1759 into one involving a face with wings, a style soon taken up by other established stone carvers in neighboring areas at Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).4
Relationship Note*Nathan was fourteen years older than his cousin Ebenezer Hayward, and it is likely that Ebenezer learned to carve gravestones in his cousin Nathan's shop in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England). Nathan's face-with-wings design appears to have been the inspiration for the design which Ebenezer developed in the early 1760s.4
Death*29 June 1794He died on 29 June 1794 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts, at age 74.2
