Note*Martha Dunshee may be related, or even the same person.2 
Birth*She was born between 1755 and 1759 at NH; The will of Thomas Dunshee (drawn 22 January 1772 and probated on 30 July 1772), husband of Elizabeth Moore, lists bequests to his wife, Betty, and to six children: Hugh, Sarah, Thomas, Robert, Mary and Martha. At the time the will was drawn, all except Hugh and Sarah were minors. Since Mary would have to wait only two years after Thomas's death for her bequest, assuming that Thomas expected to die shortly after the will was drawn and the waiting periods were probably for the two girls to reach the age of twenty-one (since they were not yet married), that would place Mary's birth at about 1753/54 (ca 1757 if 18 the age of majority) , and Martha's at 1755/56 ( ca 1759).1 
She was the daughter of Thomas Dunshee and Elizabeth Moore.1
