Research Notes

  • The closest mention of this couple is the above excerpted Boddie (1938) citation, but as is noted in her husband's profile, a match on his pedigree is not apparent in the main reference that traces Isle of Wight Virginians of the era.
  • The birth and baptism locations are inconsistent and unverified by any cited direct references.
  • Mentioned in William Godwin Will.[citation needed]
  • Ancestry Family Trees
  • US and International Marriage Records, 1560-1900 Yates Publishing Publication: Operations Inc.[citation needed]

The birth information is probably a false positive match: not only is it inconsistent with what is stated (baptism in one country, and birth in another in the same year), but for the children attached, the birth year is improbable for the youngest (son), especially.
