Aaron Felt born 21 June 1716, Rummey Marsh, Lynn, MA; d. 1769, Lynn, MA married twice. 1. Mary or Mercy WAITE on 25 December 1739 and 2. Hannah ATWELL on 22 Jan 1765. My sources are all secondary sources, so this info needs further looking into. About the only primary source I have for Aaron is the following:

Warnings-Out in Maltden, Mass. 1678-1794: "27 Feb 1760 [Samuel Wayte] warned Aaron Felt and Mercy his wife to take their children, viz Mercy, Aaron, Peter, Joshua, Jonathan, Samuel and Joseph, all of whom came from Lynn to depart."

I know this sounds like they were a bunch of criminals, but warnings-out were quit common in Massachusetts towns. They warned almost all new-comers and it really wasn't an indication of "shady" ancestors. As you see in this case, Aaron's first wife is called "Mercy" instead of Mary.

I don't have any other information on the second wife. Oh, wait, I do have a primary source on the first marriage:

From Lynn Marriage records (sorry don't have the name of the church in my notes.) "Intent of marriage 28 Oct 1739, Aaron Felt and Mercy Waitt, both of Lynn" "Marriage; Aaron Fellt and Mary Wayt, Dec 25, 1739" She is called "Mercy" in the intent and "Mary" in the actual marriage record.
