     Mary was born on Sunday, 7 November 1762 in Phillipse Manor, Westchester County, New York. She was also stated as being of Flushing. Mary married Thomas Leggett Jr., son of Thomas Leggett and Mary Embree, on 6 May 1781 in Phillipse Manor, Westchester County, New York. Thomas removed to Stillwater, Saratoga County, New York with his parents prior to the American Revolution. He, along with two of his brothers, were taken prisoners during the war. After he escaped, he returned to West Farms where he discovered his home burnt to the ground. He supposedly went to White Plains where he joined the service. After the war, he built a new home on the old foundation at West Farms. He resided there until 1836 when he moved to New York City. He was in the dry goods business in the city. "Thomas was a stately looking old gentleman who wore knee breeches and small bucklers, a long drab coat down to his knees, a white cravat and a broad brimmed hat. His second wife was very homely, but a very kind caring person. Her step daughters disapproved of her thinking her not to be good enough for their father." (Eliza Seaman Leggett, My Book of Life] His children were either born at the family homestead at West Farms or their home in the city. Mary departed this life on Tuesday, 26 November 1805 in West Farms, Westchester County, New York.
