This Roger Williams had only 2 children, daughters

See these 2 sources:

29. Roger3 Williams (Daniel2, Roger1) was born May 1680; he married Elizabeth Walling 1 May 1729 at Scituate, RI; he died 30 Jan 1763 at age 82. Children of Roger3 Williams and Elizabeth Walling were as follows: + 167 i. Elizabeth4 Williams, m. Jonathan Tourtellot. + 168 ii. Rebecca Williams, b. 20 Apr 1735; m. David Thayer; m. Peleg Williams.

I have not been able to find the real parents thus far and I do not have access to pay for sites.

Bob, re: your question:

Linda, Have you gotten any additional information to prove Roger and Elizabeth are Matthais's parents? Bob

No I haven't. i do not believe that Roger Williams and Elizabeth Walling are hisd parents. At least not the Roger Williams that family search has listed as so. My research shows that the Roger Williams listed there (grandson of the famous Roger Williams of R.I.) had only 2 daughters, no sons. Thus I posted the following in the discussion area on family tree. (too long, putting in next comment box)

Hi, Bob. Can you have a look at Agnes Fauntleroy for me. Her date of death as given conflicts with such sources as there are. Cass

Hi Bob,

Thanks for adding the marriage record for Richard and Mary ______ Harnden. Do you happen to remember where you found the children's names? They are not all listed in the Vital Records of Reading MA book. I've been trying to find a source for Barachias Harnden (Richard's son), but so far have struck out. Thank you, Sharon
