Dear Steve, Don't know that it will make a difference or not, but we do have some evidence to indicate that William's wife's first name was Martha (name in at least one deed).Of course, we don't know that he only had one wife and other than his will, have mixed up data as to some of the children. Do you know what the Middlebrooks connection is? I would be very interested in any information about any of his descendants. We do have information on several lines but I have found that often the female lines do yield valuable clues as to relationships. And investigating collateral lines is often the only way to discover those missing links.
