I made a copy of a microfilm found at the LDS Genealogy Library in SLC found on William Cleaves.
The print on the original document is very small, so I will do the best I can. I can not find a date on this book, but I do believe it was a record book from a county or church.The info I am giving you comes from pages 74 and 75.
The top of the page says:
The family of William and Margaret (Corey) Cleaves (This is on the left-hand side of the page)
(This is on the right-hand side of the page)William Cleaves and Margaret Corey were married May 18, 1683 married by Moses (can't read last name).
On the left-hand side of the page lists the names of their children. b July 22, 1686 William b March 31 1688 Hannah d April 19 1688 b July 21, 1689 Ebenezer b October 23, 1693 Benjamin
On the right-hand side of the page after the list on left is a notation that says: Margaret the mother was a daughter of Giles Corey of Salem Village, who was (can't read the rest very well, maybe one of you can decipher what little bit I can give you) forefied to death in the _________ in the witch delgsion(?) in 1692.
Then it goes on to list other Cleaves family that I believe are related to William and Margaret, but I am not sure how.
John and Mercy Cleaves William and Martha Cleaves William and Rebecca Cleaves William and Mary Cleaves Benjamin and Rebecca Cleaves Next page: Benjamin and Anna Cleaves Ebenezer and Sarah Cleaves Joshua and Elizabeth Cleaves Another Joshua and Elizabeth Cleaves Andrew and Susanna Cleaves William P and Elizabeth Cleaves
