You're welcome, Norma.

BTW, Mary Collamore's father, Captain Anthony Collamore, was an interesting guy. Here's what I know about him:

Anthony Collamore

Born: abt 1643, Norham, England

Married 14 Jun 1666, Scituate, Plymouth, MA, to Sarah Chittenden

Died: 15 Dec 1693, At Sea - Scituate Harbor

Occupation: Constable/Soldier/Ship's Captain

Anthony Collamor was born in Norham, England and came to Scituate in 1665 to make his home with his uncle Peter Collamor who had arrived in 1639. He married Sarah Chittenden of Scituate, the daughter of Isaac Chittenden, Jr and Mary or Martha Vinal in Scituate on June 14,1666. He was declared a freeman May 29, 1670 and was a constable in 1671. On July 4,1684 he was commissioned as a lieutenant by Gov. Andros and again on Feb 10, 1684/85. On June 15, 1692 he was commissioned as a captain of a Foot Company by William Phipps. He was drowned when he was shipwrecked in a snow storm on rocks near the Scituate shore on December 15, 1693. His body was recovered and he was buried in the First Parish Cemetery at Scituate Harbor. The ledges are still called the Collamors.

According to the book "Mayflower Descendants" (which, btw, he was not) his stone reads:
or a mournful remembrance of the much to be Lamented
Death of a worthy and pious
Capt. Anthony Collamor
Who together with Five Persons were cast away in a
sloop going from Scituate Harbor toward Boston
on the 15th day of December, 1693

His children with Sarah Chittenden were born in Scituate:

1. Daughter Collamor
2. Thomas Collamor
3. Anthony Collamor
4. Mary Collamor 1667 - m Robert Stetson
5. Sarah Collamor 1670 - m James Torrey
6. Peter Collamor b 6 May 167, d 15 Nov 1747 m Abigail Davis 1671 - 1750
7. Sarah Collamor 1673 -
8. John Collamor 1675 -
9. Martha Collamor 1677 - 1699
10. Elizabeth Collamor, b 11 Dec, 1679, d 18 Jan 1758 m Rev. Timothy Symmes; *2nd Husband: Jeremiah Rose - President Benjamin Harrison descends from her and Rev. Timothy Symmes (Pres. William Henry Harrison married their granddaughter, Anna Tuthill Symmes - President Benjamin Harrison was the grandson of President William H. Harrison)
11. John Collamor 1681 -

Sarah Chittenden was the granddaughter of Thomas Chittenden (through his son, Isaac and Mary Vinal. Isaac Chittenden died fighting Indians in Scituate on May 20, 1676 during King Philip's War).

Here's some info on Thomas Chittenden:
