death date may be 1726
One source has her last name as Sanford. I think the Henry Dyer who married Mary Sanford was born about 1640, though.
Phelps website has last name as Royce; source cited is

This RootsWeb entry says she is a daughter of Jonathan Royce and Ruth Beckwith.
She can't be a daughter of Jonathan and Ruth, because Ruth was born 1681 and they were married in 1700.

This Mary is supposed to be a first cousin once removed of the Mary Royce who married Henry Jr.
