The 1925 Iowa State Census is unusual because it included who the
parents were, not only for each person but also who the parents of
the parents were, in the census along with the birth dates/places
and their marriage place.
Gertrude is shown to be a daughter of James Linder and Matilda
Goranch. Matilda's last name is misspelled here, should be Gorsuch.
This census also helps to tie Gertrude's mother as Matilda Gorsuch
Linder Windhurst. Matilda, Gertrude and Grace were all part of the
family of George Windhurst in the 1895 Iowa State Census. Grace also
appeared as a stepdaughter of Geo Windhurst in the 1900 US Census.

Must Never Be Seen in Company of Miss Linder
Father of Girl Causes Sexton's Indictment
for Perjury in Securing a License. To Marry
Sixteen-Year-Old-Girl--Grand Jury Returns a
Bill Against Sexton at Marietta.
Elmer Sexton, a widower, with three children,
who eloped last June from Denmark (Ohio) with
sixteen-year-old Estella Linder, pleaded
guilty in a charge of rape before Judge
Campbell, in the common pleas court, at Mt.
Gilead, Wednesday. He was sentensed to serve
six months in the workhouse, but the sentence
was suspended pending Sexton's good behavior.
Sexton will still have to face a charge of
perjury at Marietta.
At the time of the elopement no clue could
be found as to their whereabouts. Several days
later they returned to Denmark and said they
were married. G. E. Linder father of the child.
Immediately began legal proceedings against
Sexton, preferring a charge of rape in a justice
court, and filing a suit in the common pleas
court to annul the marriage. Sexton was bound
over in the grand jury and was indicted.
Meanwhile, Mr. Linder began proceedings at
Marietta, the place where the marriage took
place, charging Sexton with perjury on the
grounds that he swore falsely regarding the
age of the girl. A true bill for perjury has
been returned against him in Washington county.
At the present session session of the Morrow
county common pleas court. Judge Campbell
declared the marriage void, and assessed the
costs against Sexton. In suspending his sentence
on a charge of rape., the court forbade Sexton
ever being seen in the company of the Linder girl.

William's grave stone shown in Find A Grave has him
listed as born in 1900 and died in 1948. The 1900 US
Census has him listed as born in Jan 1899 and 1 year
old. His Virginia death record has him as born, 13 "Dec"
1900. That date could not be correct as he was listed
in the 1900 Census which was enumerated on June 13,
1900, "Jan" was listed as his birth month. If the grave
stone birth year 1900 is correct, then his birth would
have to be in January. His birth must have been 13 Jan
1900. But several census's have his birth year listed
before 1900. Whatever, his gravestone "and" his death
record state he was born in 1900.

CHRISTIAN JOHNSON, fourth child of Johan and Johannah Laustsen
Larsen, was born in Oudrup, Aalborg, Denmark 6 Apr 1843. He lived
with his parents, three brothers and three sisters on their farm in
Denmark and it was his task to assist with the herding of the
cattle and sheep on the low, rolling, grass-covered hills near his
In 1852, his father traded homes with a man in Adrup, and in
1853 they moved to Auistrup where his parents embraced the Gospel
and were confirmed members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-
Day-Saints, better known as "Mormons".
In the year of 1854, they started on their way to America,
without much money. The family had everything they owned loaded on
a ship. Then they could not find their son Lars Christian Johnson.
Relations hid him away. Christian, his father and older brother
Alias walked all night and until they were near exhaustion, but
could not find their son Lars. The family were obliged to go and
leave him behind in Denmark.
Christian was just a small boy when he crossed the ocean with
his parents. He was about 10 years old. They left Denmark in Nov of
1854, and arrived in Hull 24 Dec 1854, and arrived in Liverpool 25
Dec 1854. On 7th of Jan 1855, the good "James Nas Mith" on which
they sailed from Liverpool with 441 Scandinavians and english
Saints under the directions of Peter O. Hanson. They arrived at New
Orleans, 23th of Feb 1855.
The Company continued up the river to Fort Leavenworth, and
after to Hickory Grove, near Atchison, Kansas where his father
filed on some land; but he had no money, so he was unable to
cultivate it. His father earned one dollar a day when he could get
work. They were strangers in a strange land. They could not speak
English and the place where they lived was unhealthy and they were
not adapted to the climate, therefore they became sick. The father,
mother and their youngest son, Neils died.
They suffered such hardship and worry; before his father died,
he secured a place for his son Christian to live. He worked for an
old couple by the name of Ray. They lived in Latin, Missouri. While
living with the Rays', he became ill with chills and fever. They
called in several doctors, but they all said he could not get well.
While he was very ill, the Ray family was obliged to move about
twelve miles away. The change seemed to help him and he soon
regained his health.
After staying one year in Missouri, Christian Johnson and his
brother Elias and his sisters Anna and Mary continued their journey
on the Utah with the other Saints. Christian joined the A. O. Smoot
company where he drove one of the ox teams. It was his duty to get
up early in the morning and camp during the night.
His youngest sister Mary came with an old english couple. She
had her feet and legs so badly frozen, that they had to be
amputated just below the knees. She always walked on her knees. She
married and raised a large family.
His oldest sister Anna emigrated on to Utah in 1855.
Christian, his brother Elias and their sisters Anna and Mary
arrived in Salt Lake City, Utah, Sep 1856. They lived with the A.
O. Smoot family for some time.
Later, Christian lived with his oldest sister Catherine and
later moved to Southern Utah where he helped with the settlements
of Salina, Richfield and Joseph in Sevier County.
During the Indian depredations, Christian helped defend the
infant settlements and later in life was pensioned as an Indian War
veteran. He helped to fight the Black Hawk War!
Christian married Martha Lewis, daughter of Tarlton Lewis and
Melinda Gimlin, 3 Jan 1866. Mr. Lewis was the Bishop of Richfield
2nd Ward, and was the first Patriarch of Sevier Stake.
Before moving to Joseph, Christian and Martha lived in
Minersville, Beaver County where Christian served as the Ward
Their two oldest children were born in Minersville, Ephrim in
1868 and Mary Elizabeth in 1870. Three of their children were born
in Joseph, Edward, Ellen and Ira. They moved back to Richfield
where Martha Rebecca was born in 1877, and Melinda Johannah in
In 1880, he moved his family to Thurber, Wayne County, Utah
and homesteaded some land. Here in Thurber, now called Bicknell is
where their youngest child, John Lewis was born in 1882.
The Johnson family settled five miles south and a little west
of Bicknell. They owned a farm and a meadow. Pine Creek ran through
the meadow and their was plenty of fish in the creek. A three-room
house of logs was built near the spring.
Mr. Johnson became a successful farmer and cattlemen, but he
also had many misfortunes. His wife was ill many years before she
passed away leaving him to rear a large family of small children.
His wife died 11 May 1886. His daughter, Nell stayed in the
home and helped her father for some time before she married.
In due time all the girls went to homes of their own and again
tragedy struck when the eldest daughter, Mary died leaving four
small children, which he helped care for.
While in Thurber, Christian helped to build the first two
church houses. His name is on the monument, built for the pioneers
at Bicknell.
He was endowed in the Salt Lake City Endowment House, 4 Dec
1869. He was ordained an Elder at Minersville by Joseph Banks. He
was made a seventy by Chapman Duncain, 2 Mar 1885. He was ordained
a High Priest, 5 May 1902.
Christian went on a Mission to his native land rom 1896 to
1898. He was set apart by F. M. Lymon on 4 Apr 1896. He labored in
the Aalborg conference. While in Denmark he had the pleasure of
meeting his brother Lars, who was left behind when a child in 1854.
He was to accompany a sick Elder home 4 Feb 1898 and arrived
home 2 Apr 1898.
While Christian was in Denmark, he tried to convert his
brother Lars to Mormonism, but failed. Lars died in Buarrip,
Denmark, 21 Jun 1916.
After his return to Utah, Christian married Annie Van Dyke,
but the marriage proved unsuccessful and they separated.
During his later years, he made his home with his youngest
daughter Melinda and her husband Harvey Mangum. He visited with the
other children, and occasionally stayed in the home of his brother
Elias and family, for the two brothers had always been very close
to each other.
Christian was well fixed financially.
He lived to be 92 years of age and although he had endured
many trials, yet he never lost faith in God and in the Gospel of
Jesus Christ. He was a hard working man and was liked by everyone.
He helped to nurse the sick and helped to lay the dead to rest.
He was one of the early settlers in Rabbit Valley, Pine
County, now known as Wayne County.
One time he worked on a government survey. He worked on
various jobs at Richfield.
In the last years of his life, he visited his children back
and forth in California and Wyoming.
His health permitting, he faithfully attended Church meetings.
One evening in Dec of 1935, he was on his way to meeting, when he
stumbled and fell on the sharp point of a post, which had broken
off. As a result of internal injuries received in this accident, he
passed away 13 Dec 1935 and was buried in the Bicknell cemetery.
When he had this accident, it was then he said to his daughter
Malinda that he thought he was good for at least another ten years,
but he guessed it was alright anyway.
He was buried at Bicknell, Wayne County, Utah 15 Dec 1935.

244 ! A Biographical History of Robert Randall and his Descendants

Author: William L. Chaffin
Call Number: CS71.R19

This book contains the history and genealogy of the Randall fa m ily of New York and Pennsylvania,

Bibliographic Information: Chaffin, William L. A Biographica l H istory of Robert Randall and his
Descendants. The Grafton Press. New York. 1909.



ROBERT RANDALL, the founder of one branch of the Randall fami l y of America, was born in
England in 1608, and died May 3, 1691, in Weymouth, Mass. He c a me to this country about 1635
and settled in Weymouth. His name appears on the records of t h e Mass. General Court, Jan. 10,
1640, where, at the Quarter Court, he is tried upon some charg e , but is subsequently acquitted. His
name occurs on the vital records of Weymouth as early as Sept . , 1640, also in Jan. 1642. Tracts of
land are recorded as granted to, or owned by, him, in 1644, a n d in the division of Weymouth lands
of 1663 he comes into possession of large tracts, one of the m b eing on the west side of the town
adjoining Braintree.

He was admitted as freeman of the Colony May 26, 1647. In a de p osition made by him and
recorded in the Mass. Archives, Vol. C, xxiv, 16, he states un d er date of July 2, 1688, that he was
eighty years of age, and that prior to coming to this countr y h e was "living for sometime in Wendover,
Bucks Co., England." This statement suggested Wendover as hi s n ative place. Accordingly the
author of this genealogy employed a competent person to go t o W endover and ascertain the facts of
the case. The examination revealed no trace of Robert Randal l o r of any of the Randall name. The
oldest and best informed residents had never heard that an y o f the family resided there; no Randall
tombstones were found, and the vicar of the Wendover parish d i d not discover the name on his
church records, which, however, only dated from 1632. The conc l usion necessitated by these facts
was that Robert Randall was only temporarily resident at Wendo v er, and was not a native of the
town. His English origin must therefore for the present rema i n an unsolved problem. In the records of
Bath Abbey Christenings in England, at dates not far from th a t of Robert Randall's birth, many
Roberts appear--that name and the names afterwards common in t h e Robert line being very often
used, and they suggest the probability that Robert of Weymout h , Mass., came from this line, but this
is only conjecture.

obert Randall's will, Suffolk Probate, Vol. viii, pp. 41, 42, was date d M arch 27, 1691. It begins as
follows: "I, Robert Randall, of Weymouth, in New England, bei n g weake of body but of competent
memory and of a disposing mind, committing my selfe both sou l e and body unto Almighty God in
hope of Eternal life and happiness through Jesus Christ his So n , and my only Saviour and Redeemer:
Doe make this my last Will and Testament," etc.

His will was executed by his mark in the presence of Mary Vini n g, Joseph Dyer, and William Chard.
He died May 3, 1691, and his will was proved May 25th followin g .

He gave to his eldest son, John, two-thirds of the pasture lan d , lying in the Range Field, being about
nine acres; also two acres of swamp lying betwixt the land o f h is son John and his son Thomas,
bounded by Joseph Dyer and Thomas Drake's land. Also one-hal f o f the fresh meadow land "lying
betwixt my son John his dwelling house, and my orchard." Als o s even acres in the first division of
"Weymouth town commons."

To his youngest son, Thomas, he gave his dwelling house and ou t house, two orchards, one-third of
pasture with other lands adjoining the Plymouth line.

To daughter Mary, wife of Abraham Staples, of Mendon, and daug h ter Hannah, wife of John
Warfield, of Mendon, œ5 each.

His son John to be sole executor.

The inventory was made by John Shaw and Joseph Dyer, May 16, 1 6 91, the total being œ154, 11s

The exact date of Robert Randall's arrival in this country a n d his settling in Weymouth cannot be
determined. It was certainly prior to 1640, for his name appea r s upon the Mass. General Court
records in January of that year. Whether his first marriage oc c urred in England and his two sons were
born there, or this marriage and these births occurred in Weym o uth, Mass., cannot be learned.
Considerations that need not be detailed here make it seem ve r y probable that the sons John and
Thomas were born in Weymouth some time between 1630 and 1640 , R obert's first wife dying at this
latter date. Her name was Mary. By her Robert Randall had:

2 i. JOHN, b. probably at Weymouth bet. 1630 and 1640; d. Fe b .
25, 1718, in Taunton North Purchase.
3 ii. THOMAS, b. probably at Weymouth bet. 1630 and 1640 ; d . June
11, 1711, in Taunton North Purchase.

This I cut and pasted from
under descendants of Thomas Packer
don't know if its proven.
My line extends from Moses and Hannah son Marshal Lanborn Packer.
Any help on Marshal's death date greatly appreciated.

1. THOMAS1 PACKER was born Abt. 1460 in Cheltenham, Gloucestershir e , England, and
died Unknown in Unknown. He married MARGARET KIBBLEWHITE Unknow n i n Unknown.

Much of what we know about the Packer family before 1850 comes fr o m research done by
Warren Packer from Evansville, Indiana. The following are excerpt s f rom his letter to Richard Packer
dated 27 Feb,1958.

Philip Packer arrived in Philadelphia on the Lion of Liverpool o n 1 4 August 1683 as an
indentured servant of Joseph Fisher. He had four years to serve a n d was to receive 50 acres of land but
no money at the end of his indenture. The Fishers were from Stillgo r in, near Dublin, Ireland but
we think that Philip was from England. Two years later, 10 Sept 168 5 , Philip married in the house of
Joseph Fisher in Philadelphia to Hannah Sessions, who was born 11 J u ne 1665 in Oxfordshire,
England. Her parents, James and Ann Sessions, were members of the F r iends Meeting at Witney,
Oxfordshire, before coming to America. The next record of Philip Pa c ker that we find was
10 Sept, 1689 when he was a yeoman of Philadelphia County. He was a p pointed administrator of the
estate of his mother in law, Ann Sessions.
The second wife of Philip Packer was Rebecca Jones, who came with h e r parents from
Wales. She married 27 March, 1741. We do not know when Hannah di e d . We do know that Philip Jr.
was Hannah's son.
Philip Packer Jr., was born 1686 in Pa. He married in 1724 in Chest e r Co., Pa. to Ann
Coates, daughter. of Peter Coates. She was born in Ireland, and t h e family came to America as the
result of the "war" against Protestants in Ireland. The Coates fami l y was Antibaptist.
Philip Packer, Jr., lived in New Jersey and then moved to the hea d o f Chester, in Maryland.,
for a short time, finally going to the vicinity of Yellow Spring s i n Chester Co. He died in Pikeland
twp., Chester Co. He was injured in the back in a sawmill acciden t a nd struck by a pitman
(whatever that was) so that in later years he was feeble and walk e d with two staves. At one time he lived
with his son James in Uwchland Twp. , Chester Co. near Downington . L ater he lived with his son
Moses, who was bound to support his father and mother. Ann live wi t h her son Moses as a widow
until he moved to York Co., Penn., at which time she went to live w i th her son James and died at the
close of the Revolutionary War. Philip Packer, Jr., was connected w i th the Friends Society in
Burlington Co., New Jersey, and later with the East Caln Monthly Me e ting in Chester Co., Penn. Philip
and Ann had five children, among whom was James. James Packer was b o rn in Middlesex Co., New Jersey, 4 Feb,1726 . James died at Howar d , Centre Co., 10 Jan 1805, and is buried in the Old Packer cemetery ne a r Howard. He married at Caln Monthly Meeting of Friends in Ches te r Co., 1Jan, 1752 to Rose Mendenhall, who was born Chester Co. , 4 A ugust 1733 and died at Bald Eagle, Jun 1824; her parents were Aaron
and Rose (Pierson) Mendenhall. From various records we find that Ja m es Packer went from New
Providence Monthly Meeting to Gwynedd, 30 Nov , 1750 and from Gwyne d d to Goshen.
The tax lists of Chester Co. show that he was in Pikeland twp. 1765 - 1781. He was taxed in East
Caln twp., 1767-1771. He evidently did not live in Pikeland, as h e w as taxed on property only and not
on animals.
In 1794 he was taxed on a mill in Centre Co., Penn. In 1796 he wa s o verseer of the poor in Bald
Eagle twp., which at that time was in Centre Co. The tax records Ce n tre co. show that in 1801 he
was taxed on 50 acres and 1 horse; in 1802 on 250 acres; in 180 3 o n 200 acres, and again in 1804
on 200 acres. In 1808, Rose Packer was taxed on 265 acres, as she w a s in 1809 and 1810. The land records of Centre Co. show that on 1 9 D ec 1796 James Packer, Sr. received of Thomas Johnston ( who was h i s son-in-law) and Jamesr Jr., 34 pounds, 9 shillings, for par t o f the money due for a tract of land, 200
acres, mill, and sawmill. On 19 May 1800, James Packer, Sr., settl e d with Thomas Johnston for 200 acres, gristmill, and sawmill, wit h J ames Packer, Jr., present. Among the thirteen childern of James and R os e was James Jr. whohe father of Gov. William Fisher Packer an d A aron Packer. The birth record of Aaron is found in the Uwchlan Mo nt hly Meeting records as 5 November 1764. He married Hannah Johnston, who
died 1804, age 40, and is buried in the Packer cemetry. In the 1801 t ax list of Centere Co., Aaron Packer was taxed on 20 acres a n d 1 cow. In 1802, Aaron Packer, a blacksmith, was taxed on 25 acres, a s h e was
until 1804. We do not find any record of him after that time. Aar o n and Hannah had six childern,
among whom was Jehu Packer.
Jehu Packer ( in some of thethe records as John ) was born 15 Octob e r 1792 in Chester
Co., Penn., and died in Howard twp., 31 January 1852. He married Sa r ah Lowe or Dow, who
was born in 1793 and died 15 February 1871, dau. of Patrick Low e o r Dow. they are both buried in
the Packer cemetery. His will is on file in Centre Co. I found hi m l isted in 1830 census of Bald
Eagle twp., Centre Co. as well as in the 1850 census of Howard tw p . He and Sarah had twelve
children among whom was Maria, born 25 September 1827.
Maria Packer , a daughter of Jehu and Sarah 9 Low or Dow ) Packer . S he was born 25
September 1827 and married Henry Glossner. I dont have their marria g e date. It is not known for sure
why Jared Packer was in the Glossner family. The brothers of Mari a P acker Glossner were Job
Way Packer, John Johnson Packer, Cornelius Lemborn Packer,James, Wi l liam Nelson, All of
these men lived much beyond 1850 and would not have left a son t o b e living in the household of their
sister. In 1885 Reuben Glossner was appointed administrator of Hen r y Glossner, late of the Borough
of Howard, Center co. with widow Maria.
In order to solve the mystery of why Jared or (Jairus) was given t h e name Packer rather than
Glossner I wrote to his daughter Mrs. Guyer I received her reply to d ay 28 feb 1958. She
said that her father was buried seventy years the fourth of Janua r y at Howard. . She said that he was
killed and that he worked in the woods as a lumberman. She also sta t ed that his mother gave him
her maiden name which was Packer, for what reason she never heard . I t might have been that he
was born out of wedlock.
The above was in Family Tree Maker, CD Vol 1-1637.
Much more information was gathered from Family Tree Maker, CD Vol 4 - 2818.
The information on the line from Jehu down to Zella was researche d a nd entered by Daniel Ellis

Isaiah GUYMON was born in 1753 in Rowan Dr. Stokes County, NC.
He died after 1792 in North Carolina. He was buried in Stokes County,
NC. He has Ancestral File number 2OQM-RW. Isaiah was raised by
Malcom and Isaiah Curry until he married, when he took his own name
Isaiah Guymon.
Family tradition indicated Isaiah Guymon served in the Revolutionary War . The tradition, in fact was quite specific--he was the tallest soldie r in his company. Proof of his service is indicated by Revolutionary Wa r PayV ouchers #2729 and #4066 and Clothing Allowance Certificate #401 o n filea t the North Carolina Archives.
____________________________________ I 686
First Guymons in AmericaThe family tradition states that somewhere aro u nd 1753, a man by the name of Guyman and his wife, Elizabeth Curry, sai le d from Ireland to America. On the voyage across the ocean the man die d an d was buried at sea. His wife came on to America where her son was b orn . She named him Isaiah. He was raised by Elizabeth?s two brothers, Ma lcol m and Isaiah Curry. When Isaiah was seventeen years old (abt 1770) h is mo ther married a Mr. Richard Goode, a very prominent and well to do m an.Isa iah married Elizabeth Flynn in 1772, at this time he took his ow n name o f Isaiah Guymon. The first recorded history of the Guymon famil y is of Is aiah and Elizabeth residing in Stokes County, North Carolin, i n 1773. The y were the parents of ten children.Isaiah was a soldier i n the Revoluti onary War.Pedigree Resource File CD 19:Isaiah Guymon wa s born about 17 53 shortly after his mother Elizabeth Curry Guymon arrive d in America. Hi s father died and was buried at sea. His mother came o n to America and be cause of the difficulty of a lone woman making a livi ng in Colonial Ameri ca and raising a baby, Isaiah was given to his mothe r's two brothers, Mal colm and Isaiah Curry. When he married Elizabeth Fl ynn, he took his own n ame, Isaiah Guymon.In 1772-73 Isaiah married Eli zabeth Flynn and bega n raising a family in Surry (now Stokes County), No rth Carolina. The firs t eight children were born in Surry County, with T homas, the seventh, bei ng born on 10 March 1787. The last two were bor n in Stokes County. The bi rth dates of all his children came from the pe rsonal record written by Is aiah Guymon himself.Tradition says that Isaia h participated in the Revo lutionary War on the American side and that h e was the tallest soldier a t Valley Forge. Searches of records to verif y this have yielded only a cl othing issuance number #6901. There is no r ecord that Isaiah applied fo r a bounty land warrant instead of dollars f or his military service. At t he time of his death, he did not qualify fo r a pension since he was no t a poor man. His wife died before eligibilit y of veteran benefits were i nstituted.By 1782 Isaiah had acquired 10 0 acres of land in Surry Count y which he farmed to support his growing f amily. In 1786 he purchased ano ther 100 acres with an old mill on it. I n 1791 and 1797 he bought anothe r 200 acres making a total of about 60 0 acres..Isaiah gave great servic e to the community as overseer of th e road, keeping it clear of fallen tr ees, filling deep holes, etc. He se rved as a juror and took part in a loc al iron works project adjacent t o his property.It was a common practic e during this time to sell lan d to their sons at a low price as they cam e of age or married. Isaiah fo llowed this custom deeding Thomas 100 acre s in 1809, William 30 acres i n 1815 and 200 acres to Richard in 1819. Wit h this last transaction, Isa iah disappears from civil records of the stat e of North Carolina. It i s not known whether he died and was buried on hi s farm or went west wit h Thomas or William, but it is known that he coul d read and write, somet hing unusual for a frontier farmer in those days , and that he was red-he aded! Isaiah at age 70 lived to see the taming o f North Carolina, live d through two wars, raised l0 children to maturit y and had been active i n civic affairs.LDS AF shows death date as 20 Fe b 1809; also children , dates, etc.In 1957 it was reported that there ha d been considerabl e research on Isaiah Guymon and Elizabeth Curry's desce ndants. At that t ime they had put together 420 Family Group Sheets and co unted 1600 desce ndants.Mrs. Charlotte Anderson, a daughter of Noah Thoma s Guymon and Lo uisa Rowley did a lot of this resarch as well as a Georg e Weatherald o f Los Angeles, who was a great great grandson of Richard Gu ymon, the you gest son of Isaiah and Elizabeth. He was an accredited genea logist. I' m sure murch more has been obtained since then.

I wish I could give you my sources for the following info but it was
gathered by my mother and she passed away a couple of years ago. She
was very careful with her research and although I am sure she made mista k es
I know that she carefully proved her info.
Richard Sweet m Mehitable Larkin 15 Dec 1673
William b abt 1674, Warwick RI
Richard Jr. b. 23 Feb 1676, Westerly, RI
Susanna b. 17 Feb 1678, Westerly, RI
Elizabeth b. 10 Feb 1680, Westerly, RI
Mary b 4 Nov 1682, Westerly, RI
Eleanor b 13 Jun 1687, Westerly, RI
Benjamin b. abt 1688, Warwick, RI

Richard jr. M. Elizabeth Jaques 8 Mar 1704 and 2nd Fear Jones,
22 May 1712, they had six children.
Elizabeth m. Peter Wells, 2 Jul 1746
Benjamin m. Margaret Hammett, 11 May 1721,
they had seven children
Two of Richard's children were born in Warwick so perhaps
that is why our info is different. Donna Fairbanks
