    Note: Many references give the parents of Thomas Bosman as John Bosman of the Maryland legislature and Blandina Risdon. This is in error. John & Blandina also had a son named Thomas who was married to a Mary about the same time, but not the Thomas who is the father of Sarah Bosman married to William Hayes. Documentation of this fact is forthcoming from Jan Craven - jcraven@iamerica.net, who has done extensive research on this family.

    Thomas* married Mary* Key about 1719. Mary* (daughter of (..) Key) was born about 1700 in Virginia; died between 1735 and 1745 in Prince William Co, Virginia. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 3.  Mary* Key was born about 1700 in Virginia (daughter of (..) Key); died between 1735 and 1745 in Prince William Co, Virginia.

    Other Events:

    • Other-Begin: 17 Jan 1734, Prince William Co, Virginia

    Notes:

    It appears Mary was Key. Martha Key Littlejohn-Lillard was nee Key and called her sister. Other family connections seem to prove that out.

    notes from previous speculation on Mary's last name.
    She could be possibly Mary Lilliard, per Lois Culver. Or she could be Mary Frances Cofer who died 1754 in Truro Parish, Fairfax, VA, the dau of Henry Cofer who died in 1796 in Prince Georges Co, MD. Mary Cofer & Mary Love both died in 1754. Love is assumed as her last name because of references in her will.
