      Mary Redman, widow of John1 Redman, was still a widow Sept. 26, 1673 (D. & W. 1665-77, p. 163a), but was married (2) to Edward Franklin by April 20, 1675. The will of John Harris, dated April 20 and probated June 30, 1675, makes Edward Franklin his executor, mentions his son John and Mary fforeside, "my late wife's daughter"; and in case of the son's death, half his property to Mary Franklin and her children, and half to Mary fforeside (same, p. 239). The son, John Harris did die, and Mrs. Franklin and Mary fforeside inherited the property, for which Mary fforeside signed a release to Edward Franklin Nov. 18, 1689; but soon after this she married John Spencer, who sued Franklin April 7, 1693 to get what he regarded as still due from the Harris inheritance (O. B. 1690-98, p. 93a). The above will may indicate that Mary Redman Franklin was a sister of John Harris, or possibly a sister of his wife and an aunt of Mary fforeside. There is the possibility, too, that she was connected with the Sturman family, for John Redman was deeded land by Thomas Youell (who married Anne, daughter of the immigrant Thomas Sturman) in 1655
