Damaris Wilder, daughter of John Wilder and Prudence Wilder, was born at Petersham, Worcester Co., Massachusetts, 8 August 1750.1

Damaris married Kenelm Winslow, son of Kenelm Winslow and Elizabeth Clapp, at Petersham 3 March 1773.2

The revised Book of the Wilders indicates the identification of Damaris, daughter of John and Prudence as the Damaris who married Kenelm Winslow is not proved. They further note however that she is the only Damaris known to be in Petersham whose age fits a marriage in 1773 and who is not otherwise recorded as marrying someone else.3
