Thank you.Yes.Therein is the conundrum.Much conflicting information with no sourcing.There are many who think Rev. John Sr. was Absalom's father however I cannot find evidence of that (land record, will, etc.).
In fact, in John Sr's will he mentions "his three sons" John Jr., William, and Justice.No mention of an Absalom.That gives me pause for sure.Therefore, I am reluctant to readily believe John Sr. was Absalom's father.
If anyone out there has records that would help, I would greatly appreciate your assistance.
