Hi, the "Lowman Genealogy, George Salisbury Lowman", Page 157 states" George Salisbury Lowman, fifth child of Martin and Lydia Jenkins was named after his maternal grandmother's family.  Her name was Sally Salisbury. The Salisburys came from a Welsh family which has furnished many statesmen and scholars to the British Empire. Willism Salisbury, the pioneer came to America from Debighshire, Wales He was born there in 1622 and with his wife, Susanna emigrated to Milton Mass in 1661 ..."  This statement would conflict with the parents in Wikitree.  Can you help with this?  Thanks so much, Pat

William Salisbury shows up in my Geneology through his son William, who married my (unsure how many times G-Great Aunt) “Ann Cole [Hugh(2), James(1)] b. Plymouth, Mass. Oct 14, 1664; d. June 23, 1704; m. July 30, 1684, William, son of William and Susanna Salisbury. He was b. June 14, 1659; d. Apl 3, 1726. William Salisbury m. (2) Mary Ormsbury, Jan 27, 1705.

He and Ann had 10 children together. I will look more into what information I can find on William’s parents for you. I also have an online book showing all transcriptions from the Kickemuit Burying Ground headstones. I’ll try to find their names to at least get more details that way too. I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. Katie

I received the following email below, and I do not have this surname in my family tree.  It was very nice of Katie to respond, but these names are not in my tree, and my Mills family came from Northern Ireland in 1919 to Canada.  Did this go to the wrong person?

This needs to be answered seriously because there's a lot of BS out there on this family.  As far as I know, there is NO proven lineage for William's father John.  There are many fanciful stories out there about his wife and parents and I've never seen any proof for any of it, however many of these beliefs are firmly held.  We need a definitive answer besides "this is what I know or think or wish".

There is something in The Mediæval History of Denbighshire (published at Wrexham in 1890) relating to the family of Salisbury of Denbighshire, here, which might provide a useful starting point; see also Heraldic Visitations of Wales and Part of the Marches, 1586-1613, here; also there is evidently information on the Salusburys of Denbighshire in Bartrum's Welsh Genealogies, but I can't find an online version.
