      ===Research Notes from Thena Jones

      Mary by her first husband Nicholas BELAINE had two children whose births were recorded in the court records, Jemima 15 Mar. 1686 and Elizabeth 25 Feb. 1688. After her marriage to Benjamin POSEY, they had recorded the births of Susanna on 1 June 1691 and Mary on 10 Oct. 1693. It was about this time that births stopped being recorded in the court records. Most likely John, Benjamin, and Belaine were born in the period from ca. 1695 to 1699."
