According to the Orvis Family in America genealogy Anna was b. Mar 4, 1746. Does not give her mother's maiden name. The notes say she married _______Alexander. One or more of her desc. lived in Newbury Seneca County Ohio in 1857. One was Justin Alexander.
http://genforum.genealogy.com/orvis/messages/358.htmlhttp://genforum.genealogy.com/orvis/messages/358.html (Barry Wood)Anna Orvis was born 4 May 1746 in Northfield, Mass., daughter of William and Anna (______) Orvis. Was she not the first wife of Rev. war soldier Jonathan Sartle (Sartwell) Alexander (b. 1749 at Ft. Dummer)?
According to papers in the pension file, Jonathan married his second wife Bathsheba [(Rice) Hager] in 1792, so it would seem that Anna (Orvis) Alexander died around 1790 or 1791.
Also, does anyone know the maiden name of Anna (______) Orvis, the mother of Anna (Orvis) Alexander? The mother died 19 August 1746, when Anna (Orvis) Alexander was just three months old.

I have consulted with the woman who wrote "The Three Wives of William Orvis of Northfield, MA: Anna Petty, Martha Severance, and Elizabeth Alexander" and she pointed me in the right direction. William actually married a younger cousin of the Anna I had listed. Ther right Anna was the daughter of Joseph Petty and Sarah Edwards.

More on Rebecca (Carrington?) who married Abraham Andrus: The Andrews Memorial calls her dau. of John Carrington, of which we have not seen evidence; but if true, she must have been sister of John of Waterbury, and presumably dau. of the John w ho was executed for witchcraft.
"Rebecca Carrington was the daughter of John Carrington and Joan who both are believed to to be the John and Joan Carrington who were hung in Salem in March 1651 of witchcraft (this wa s actually before the Salem Witch Trials of 1692).

Parents: Richard Baldwin (d. between 5-20-1630 and 5-16-1633 in Cholesbury, Buckinghamshire Co., England) and Isabel
Children: Mary (c.1602), Timothy (c.1604), Hannah (c.1607), Joseph (c.1609), Nathaniel (c.1612), Christian (c.1614), Sarah (c.1617)
J. L. Chester, in his research concerning the Baldwins of Aston Clinton. See N. E. H. and G. R., 38. On page 164 he gives the substance of the will of a Richard Baldwin of Cholsbury, weaver, dated 23 May, 1630; the will was proved by his son Timothy 16 May, 1633. He names hi s wife Isabell; sons, Timothy, Nathaniel, and Joseph; daughter, Mary Pratt, and her daughter Mary, "+ her other 2 children"; daughter Hannah, "+ my other 2 daughters Christian and Sarah." Now there were three Baldwins, Timothy, Nathaniel, and Joseph, in New Haven and later i n Milford. They were associated both in New Haven and in Milford with the family of Sylvester Baldwin who came from Aston Clinton, the family having lands in Cholsbury near-by. The identity of names, especially when one of them is the unusual name of Timothy--a unique occurrence in the Baldwin family of Aston Clinton--the association with another branch of the family w ith whom doubtless they were intimate in England--these considerations make the identification seem certain. The ages of the children are not known, though Joseph, Christian, and Sarah a re under twenty-one.
Parents: Jarvis Boykin (d. before 1-23-1660 in New Haven, CT) and Isabel
Children: Nathaniel (9-1641), Bethia (4-30-1643), Sarah (1-18-1645)
