This shows that the father of Samuel William Sample II is William Sample JP and Josine Marshall.  Yet when you click on William Sample JP it shows his will and Samuel was NOT listed -- only one daughter Margaret.  How did you link Samuel William Sample to William Sample JP and Josine Marshall?

There is the sentence "To my son Samuel I give my Large Bible" plus if you look in the list of children, he is #2

The sentence "To my son Samuel I give my large Bible" is in Samuel's will dated 13 June 1776.  I am referring to Samuel's supposedly father William Sample JP.  William's will dated 11 Dec. 1682 does not mention a son Samuel--only a daughter Margaret.  If William died in 1682 and Samuel was born ca 1694, then Samuel was born 12 years after his supposedly father William died.  What am I missing?
