On page 55 of the book mentioned in my prior posting, THREE daughters by the name of Martha were born to Robert Daniel and Elizabeth Russ.
I am typing it AS I VIEW IT from the book --- so you may need to check additional records.)
The first Martha is listed in this manner:
MARTHA born Feb. 28, 1758/bap. April 6--- (No year date is given.)
The second "Martha" listing is as follows:
MARTHA bap. January 23, 1766. No BIRTH date given.
And the third "Martha"is listed as bap. April 11, 1768 (No birth date given.)
The other children are listed as Robert & Jonathan (twins),
Sarah, Elizabeth , Robert Litton, and /note this: another Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Daniel was born March 15, 1763 & bap. June 7.
Elizabeth Russ Daniel was born March 18, 1766 and bap. June 7.
Some of this does not make sense to me...either.Get a copy of this book and look on page 55...perhaps you or someone else can make sense of it.
These people are not a part of my Daniell family...I am via Gov. Robert Daniell 1646-1718 & Martha Wainwright, his second wife. Perhaps these were people from his first marriage.
It may be that some of the above mentioned children died young and they named another child after the one/ones who had died.
That is the only explanation I can think of --- unless the data was entered in the book incorrectly.
