So I've read through Moriarty's critique of the link between Greenford George and the Rhode Island George and find it generally quite convincing. Does anyone else find it noteworthy that he also seems to have named none of his children "Michael" after his supposed father? He had many chances to do so.
Also, if he waited to name his third son after himself, who was "Henry," his second son, named after if not his father? Was "Benoni" ever carried down as a family name or was it only applied based on circumstances as per its appearance in Genesis? Perhaps someone more familiar with English/colonial naming conventions can weigh in here. Many thanks for any help or leads.
