    From familysearch.org. There are four relevant Mercy Wing references in the relevant time and place. One married Wm Cone.

    Autosomal DNA shows a link to Simeon Wing family, shown. I think more information would be good here, however.

  • Name "Mercy"/Mary Wing  [1, 2
    Born Abt 1788  [1
    • There are many Wings living in and around Clinton. From proximity, clear alliance with family of Philip and his son Jabez. Is Mercy a mistake, Mary, perhaps? DNA is quite clear that link exists.

      This is not final, but its looking probable. There is a marriage record in Kennebec, ME for Mercy Wing and William Cone. A Wm Cone turns up living with Mary Cone and Warren McPhetres in 1860, with a birth date that would fit the wedding in 1806. DNA tests prove that Mary is descendant of Samuel Cone. William Cone is almost certainly his son. Furthermore, DNA matches on Wings have appeared

      The fly in the ointment is this: There is a marriage record of Wm Cone and Mercy Wing in 1806. Its clear that there are more than one Mercy Wingsabout as there are FOUR marriages for Mercy Wing in Kennebec country in 10 years (three in Clinton)!

      Here is the link:
      Mercy Wing: Maine Marriages, 1771-1907 spouse: William Cone marriage: 11 Apr 1806 — Clinton, Kennebec, Maine groom's name: William Cone bride's name: Mercy Wing marriage date: 11 Apr 1806 marriage place: Clinton,Kennebec,Maine

      But the bad news is:
      Marcy Wing [is this a different one?]
      Maine Marriages, 1771-1907
      spouse: Jidediah Goodwin
      marriage: 11 Oct 1810 — Clinton, Kennebec, Maine record title: Maine Marriages, 1771-1907 groom's name: Jidediah Goodwin bride's name: Marcy Wing marriage date: 11 Oct 1810 marriage place: Clinton,Kennebec,Maine
      The intriguing thing is the 1820 census in Clinton, where we have people listed in the following order in Clinton:

      Samuel Cone
      Isaac Cone (son of Samuel)
      Jabez Wing
      Jedediah Goodwin (husband of Mercy Wing)
      Samuel Cone, Jr

      People of the time tended to live close to each other, and we have here a possible alliance between the Cones (one of them, Wm. married Mercy Wing in 1806) and the Wings, including the Mercy who married Jedediah in 1811. I simply don't believe that this is coincidence. I note that many years later (1860) we have Sarah Cone, probable sister of Mary (at worst, first cousin), living right next door to Stephen Wing, son of Jabez. My conclusion is that in some way, Mercy Wing, wife of William Cone is of this family group, though not identical with the woman of the same name that married J. Goodwin in 1811.

      Note: in 1820 census Jabez Wing lived "next door" to the Cones (Samuel and Isaac) in Clinton, Maine. Phillip Wing, father of Jabez and probablyMercy also lived in Clinton in 1800 census.
