You mentioned the book, Anne Arundel Gentry, HWN. It is extremely important as to what printing you are using. The original book was published in 1933 and HWN made several corrections in a subsequent printing in 1970.Among these corrections was the children of Thomas Iiams b. 1708 and the relationship of Eli Iiams who married Catharine Crawford. There were other errors but HWN refused to correct them. A little history, E.B. Iams, Harry Wright Newman,Erwin Bickley [unpublished] knew each other and it was with pressure applied by these and others that eventually made HWN correct the errors. It is important that you use the 1970 edition as it contains the corrections. I have these books. Much has been posted in the Message board under Imes, Iams, Iiams & Ijams.
