      Mary Welsh was probably a daughter of William Suit who went to NC by 1771 tax list for Granville County. She bought a church pew in MD with one of the Suit men. Also, I believe the Solomon Turner who is mentioned and he ended up living next door to Richard Suit in Halifax County, NC per census records.
