Also known as Gawkroger-Platts, there is some contention as to
whether Mary is the daughter of James & Martha Ainsworth or
Abraham & Mary Riley. There is also disagreement on the number
of children she had and their birthdates. For lack of a better source,
I have chosen to use the children listed by Savage.
