Child 5 is "Mercy" based on Barbour's reading of her tombstone, but "Mary" based on Lawson (1905:36).  As the tombstone was weathered, I'm inclinced to go with Lawson's reading of what was probably a town birth record or church baptism.

Town incorporated 1785, having been previously a part of Killingly which dates back to 1708.

The Congregational Church of Thompson was organized in 1730, in what was then the North Society of Killingly and named "Thompson Parish" in honor of a non-resident English proprietor, Sir Robert Thompson, a distinguished nobleman, the first president of the "Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts."

Rev. Marston Cabot, the first pastor, begins the marriage record in 1730, as follows...

Ebenezer Corbin of Keckamochaug (afterwards Dudley) and Martha Dresser --- April 15, 1731

The death dates are from Barbour (above); the birth dates are from Lawson (1905:36).  I juggled the age at death to make them jibe.
