    • Note: "Died Mrs. Sally Dyer, aged 27, wife of Mr. Joshua Dyer".(Portland Gazette)
      buried in the cemetery behind the Hanna House in E Sullivan. [AWM] ============================================ dau. of: MARY ODIORNE, daughter of William (11), born (???); died at Groton, N.H., in 1792. She married Amos Ames of Groton, and had children; viz.,-- 1. Sarah, who married Joshua Dyer of Sullivan, Me., and died, November, 1801, aged twenty-six years.

      Note that Mary supposedly had d. Mary in 1790 according to Odiorne genealogy

      The following shows that a sister of Mary Odiorne married a well known man who lived in Groton MA 1778-1782. It suggests that Mary may have lived with Mehitable and James (?) and met Amos Ames somewhere in the process. Pure speculation, but its not a coincidence that we have a Groton, MA-Odiorne link here.

      Another note. In Groton, MA records, an Odiorne (Mehitable/Hetty) married James Sullivan (1 Apr 1781).
      And this from the Groton Hist. Series

      Hon. Richard Sullivan died in Cambridge, 11 December, 1861, aged 82 years. He was the third son of Hon. James and Mehitable (Odiorne) Sullivan, and was born in Groton, Mass., 17 July, 1779. His father was born in Berwick, Me., 22 April, 1744. He was a lawyer by profession, and began practice in Georgetown, Me. ; but soon afterwards removed to Biddeford, Me. In February, 1778, he removed to Groton, Mass. ; and, in 1782, he removed from Groton to Boston. He was a judge of the Supreme Court, and attorney-general of Massachusetts. In 1807, he was chosen governor of the state; was re-elected in 1808, and died while in ofBce, 10 December, 1808. Mr. Sullivan's mother was the daughter of William Odiorne, a ship-builder, of Durham, N. H., where she was born 26 June, 1748; and died in Boston, 26 January, 1786.

      Further note on Mary (12/14). A diary of William Nutting exists from Groton, MA that reports absolutely clearly that the wife of Amos Ames Jr was buried 29 Jul, 1787 in Groton after church. This may be, probably is, Mary Odiorne, contradicting other sources. It is so specific and "first hand" however, that it is hard not to accept.
