Josiah Southwick - Two born same date - July 17, 1742.

Southwick-268 (link above) is the son of Daniel and Ruth (Shove) Southwick and the other is (no profile created yet) the son of John and Mary (Buffum) Southwick.
Southwick-268, according to the Caller source [1] Was 'killed wrestling in his father's barn with a hired man.' The other Josiah married Elizabeth Southwick. See pages 130 and 158 of the Caller source.
To Do:
  1. Check for Vital Records for both Josiahs
  2. Check the book "A Study of Lawrence and Cassandra Southwick", by Janet Ireland Delorey, published in 1997.

Anna Southwick - Birth location

She was born on the 30th day of the tenth month of 1743. She is listed in both the Vital Records of Salem [2] and the Vital Records of Danvers[3] as being born in that town on that date.

Hannah (Shove) Southwick - Date of Death and children with Lawrence Southwick. The list of children, from the Caller source, attributes several children as born to her, but since I can't find a confirmed date of death, I am not sure if those children are hers, or belong to the second wife, Patience (Handy) Southwick, who Lawrence married in 1762.
