I think the profile covers your concerns. If not, please let me know what you think should be changed or added?
On the topic of the reference to the ''U.S., Sons of the American Revolution Membership Applications, 1889-1970,'' I do not have Ancestry.com membership, so do not have access to this record. I am not an SAR member myself, but have looked at lots of DAR member records.
My understanding is that the record includes the patriot and subsequent generations up to the applicant. Ann's will was proved in 1701, so she would not have been the mother of a patriot. Her children were all born by 1660.
There is an Ancestry.com link with the reference. Maybe someone with a membership could check this for us. If it does include ancestral generations, I hope it also includes the sources for any information.
Question: are ancestors of patriots included in SAR applications? I think sometimes they may, but if the applicant was using the work of Otis, for instance, Otis concluded that Ann was a 2nd wife, because she did not mention all their children in her will. As far as I can tell, we have no real evidence for another (first) wife.
Thank you for your question. This is how we learn from one another, and I am certainly ignorant about SAR applications.
