Is the father of William Upshaw Jeremiah Upshaw 1622 or Abel Upshaw as shown here. Also did he have two wives named Hannah, or is Forrest a speculative maiden name for one wive Hannah?

Upshaw-107 and Upshaw-18 appear to represent the same person because: Duplicate. In 1718 he married Hannah widow of James Carber in Essex County Virginia.
