Ann Flint (Unknown-362956) mother of John Southwick [[Southwick-17|John Southwick]]?

Most of these references show that Ann Flint is the mother of John Southwick Jr. I was unable to add her as mother because her death date is listed as 1668, and all sources seem to show that John was born Jan 1669.

I think Ann's death date was chosen as 'before Aug 13, 1668' because of her listed will which states "Proved in Ipswich court Aug 13, 1668". Couldn't that actually mean that the will was submitted to the court on that date, not the date she died?

I think Ann Flint's death should be listed as 'after Jan 1669'.

The Will would have been submitted for probate on 13 Aug 1668 - which would have meant that Ann had to be dead by then.  So 'before' is the one to choose, rather than 'after'.

Ann Flint (Unknown-362956) mother of John Southwick [[Southwick-17|John Southwick]] --they aren't mother and son, but instead wife and husband. They do have a son John Southwick-166

I think you've gotten your Johns confused, which is really easy to do .
