My ancestor Mary Marshall wed Edward Bliss in 1780 and they had 5 children from 1780 to 1785. And none of them lived. Mary's husband then died in 1785 just before their last child died. Although they were paupers according to the childrens baptisms.

Mary wed again and had two children, the first one being my ancestor and she lived as did her sibling.
