Thanx for the reply... You are sure right about Gayle Mark and the "Bozarth Beacon".We Bozarth's are soooooo fortunate to have this resource.
The trouble with Bathsheba being the daughter of Simon and Mary and also being alive after 1749, is that when Simon wrote his will he did not name her.
I have an extremely good copy of his will written, March 17, 1749, and nowhere does it mention Bathsheba.Is there another will that does mention her???
In the will that I have --- which is the will that was used when he died in 1753. Simon was so specific about his children, he even showed favortes.It seems inconceivable that if he was going to disinherit Bathsheba that he didn't mention it in his will. He wasn't bashful about the other things he did (and didn't do) to his children.
Further, Bathsheba was married to Thomas Simons in Burlington Co, NJ, January 8, 1746.If she was alive until 1777, why aren't there any children???? -- ARE THERE ANY CHILDREN????
Let's see if there are other descendents of Simon and/or Bathsheba that can put all of this information into some context that makes sense.
Okay family, let's have a discussion. Tell me what you think.
Thanx for your thoughts, Alfred.Also thanx for helping other family members know about the "Bozarth Beacon" publication in this public forum.
