After writing about her husband William Hasket, it seems appropriate to also write about Mary.
Mary is mentioned in a Quaker document (date unknown, assuming to be after 1754) indicating her as parent to the following children:
Abraham – born 12-24-1733; married Jemima Lacey
William – born 2-20-1736
Jesse – born 8-4-1738; died 3-2-1762 (age 23)
John – born 6-11-1741; married Elisabeth Woodly (Woodley)
Isaac – born 4-18-1744
Jemima – born 12-12-1747; died 3-15-1762 just 13 days after brother Jesse (age 14)
Joseph – born 8-15-1749
Silas – born 1-7-1752
Thomas – born 9-13-1754; married Sarah Albertson
1772: Mary is the head of the household in 1772 Tax records for Perquimans County, North Carolina. I have assumed William is dead at this time since his will is dated early 1772.
1775: Mary is again the head of the household. She pays her 1775 Taxes (pg 4 of unknown poll taker district) on 3 polls – her son Thomas, and negroes Sampson and Venus. Sampson appears to have joined the household about the time of William’s death since he is mentioned in William’s will.
1779: Mary pays her 1779 Tax on 61 acres, 2 negroes, 1 horse, and 19 cattle. I am disturbed by the value placed on human life. At least the 2 people are worth more than her 61 acres.
1781: An interesting find while researching this family is this Revolutionary War Pay Voucher for Mary Hasket. I have included the pay voucher for her son John (who is His mother’s link to DAR!) They are numbered sequentially. None of the siblings married a woman named Mary. At this time, her husband William has died and she is living on 61 acres (I’m assuming she still has the land until I find date for the transfer to her son Thomas.)
This might allow for a female supplemental for my mother-in-law!!
1783: Mary pays her 1783 taxes in Perquimans County, North Carolina on 2 negroes named Lydia and Samson. Venus is on the tax record for her son Thomas. She also has no acreage but Thomas pays a poll on 61 additional acres at this time. She also has 4 cattle.
Mary is not indicated on the 1787 Tax records. Her will supports the idea she is deceased by this time.
Mary Hasket’s will is dated 9th day, 11 month, 1784 and probated during 1785. It mentions granddaughter Anne Hasket but does not indicate parent of Anne. This could be John’s daughter, who married Thomas Hill. It also mentions sons John, Silas, Thomas. A Jesse Hasket is a witness but it is unclear if this is a son, nephew, grandson, or other possible relative.
