Nathan - I agree completely. There is mention of how Phillip & Nancy's Daughter "Caty" had three children out of wedlock, and was pretty much disowned by her father. Given one dollar in his will while others inherited land and large sums (for the day). Sara Elizabeth (by then) Thompson, was justly treated in the will. I have to think it is because she "cleaned up her act" and got married - while Caty never did.
Thanks for your insight - How are you connected to this family?
