Mary's parents both died when she was about one and a half.  Samuel Willis was made her ward and she went to live with the Willis family, eventually marrying the youngest son.

"The name Mary Fry brings me the charming Quaker maiden, who was 15 years old in 1727, and had already captivated her neighborhood. She was an orphan from her infancy, but an heiress and a belle, if a devout Quaker maiden can be called a belle, and when young Samuel Willis fell in love with her he found he must win her from many competitors. But he had this in his favor, she was his father's ward and dwelling under his father's roof." (*)
