In the CSL Barbour file Mrs Lois (Standish) Calkins is listed ***LOIS ABEL*** for her marriage record.

But it is possible that Lois could have been married prior to, in between or after these marriages and had children, what is correct?

  27 viii.   Mary STANDISH, ?or SHAW?, born Abt. 1660 in EXACT BIRTH DATE AND LOCATION UNKNOWN of Duxbury, Plymouth County, Massachusetts, New England; died 06/19/1736 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts, New England. She married James Cary Aft. 07/23/1700; born 03/28/1652 in Braintree, Suffolk (now Norfolk County), Massachusetts, New England; died 11/20/1706 in ?Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts, New England.
  Notes for Mary STANDISH, ?or SHAW?:
The marriage record does not give the bride's name, however the proof of the marriage is the signature of Mary Cary to a 16th April 1731 deed releasing her right in the estate of her sister Martha Standish. The article " Marriages in The Town of Bridgewater previous to its Division" (NEHGR 21:225-8) says "James Cary and Mary Shaw, 4th January 1681." It is possible that James Cary married both Mary Shaw and Mary Standish? If so, some or all of the children may not be Myles Standish descendants.

The will of James Cary of Bridgewater dated 18th October 1706, proved 4th March 1706, names wife Mary; son James Cary; daughters Marcy, Mary, Hannah and Elizabeth Cary.

One thing for sure the children of this couple are either Mayflower Passenger Francis Cooke's great grandchildren or Mayflower Passenger Myles Standish's grandchildren.
