Hi S,

Geoffrey Downing and Elizabeth Wingfield may not be George Dowing's parents; Arthur may not be his brother. I can't determine these relationships with any certainty. My ancestor's research dates back to the early 1950's and definitely has errors.

My source is their publication, "Genealogical Notes and Anecdotes, Fowler Mallett, 1953." My great Uncle, Archie P. Campbell contracted for some of the research at that time. Eleven of the books are housed in major libraries around the US. The books lineage charts would indicate that I, like you, am a direct blood descendant.

While nothing a man creates is certain, most of the family genealogy in this book is accurate. Archie visited the California Reddington's (the book's patrons) who had contact with the Hearst's and Churchill.

Good Morning!

Re: James Ware.

Thanks for the message. I PP him temporarily while I figure out the project (-: If you have any ideas, let me know. Thanks!

Re Clements-95: Oops! It looks like I got side-tracked and did not get back to this. This month I am dealing with personal matters and won't have time to get to the profile, so if you wish to do some editing, feel free to do so! Thank you for asking, though!

Graves is Mary's mother's maiden name. Her parents were Rebecca Graves and Samuel Adams. Her name is Mary Graves Adams to clarify which Mary Adams she is. She married Samuel Webb.

Oh, I agree that it's more information than often present-I guess I've just had quite a few times where I've had to go through and revise/disconnect my lines because I didn't fully account for alternatives. I'd seen her ancestry listed as unknown for so long that I figured it still was.

Thanks very much for the information! My only question about the will: Mary Haskin's grandfather, James Tisdale, died in 1715. The marriage between Moses Cass and Mary Haskins took place in 1717/1718. Would we be able to be certain they were the same Mary Haskins from that context? Donald Lines Jacobus, in his book on the Granberry Family, indicates she is the same person, but I don't know the source (one of them is the Ezra Reed Book):

Hi Sharon,

I looked up the Ezra Reed book-the only edition I could access (due to letting my subscription lapse) was from 1912. I found this article, by Mrs. Gertrude Howard Smith, from "The American Genealogist," 1970:

The writer identifies the parents of each Martha Philbrick and Patience Draper, but doesn't name them for Mary Haskins. I took that to mean Mary's were still unknown. Will keep looking to see if I can find anything else.

Hi Sharon, I'm going to look up the Ezra Reed book and check around to see if I can find something else-I just remembered because on my own genealogy software I made sure to put a note that Mary Haskins's parents were unknown-if they are known, that's great-more generations to add. Will circle back once I find more information. Thanks! -K

Hi Sharon,

The info for the timeline came from the info in the profiles - I just neglected the "after" by her death date. I just added it - thanks. I don't have any better info on her.
