Mary Bouden (1705-1755) was the daughter of Michael Bouden and Sarah Davis of Lynn.  She married Joseph Richards (1703-1748), who was the son of Crispus Richards and Sarah Collins of Lynn, Mass.   Joseph and Mary (Bouden) Richards had eight children between 1730 and 1746.  

Joseph Richards and Mary Bouden are my 6th great-grandparents.  I am descended from their daughter Mary Richards (1733-????) who had a relationship with Isaac Buck (1732-????).
