    • Notes: 
    • Mercy Freeborn's given name is also seen as Mary.

      Althought the published Coggeshall Genealogy states that Mercy was the daughter of Gideon Freeborn, it also states that her father Thomas Nichols became the guardian of her daughter Mary Coggeshall. Obviously her maiden name was Nichols and not Freeborn.
