Does anyone know for sure where the Timothy Knowlton who md. Martha Shippe belongs on the family tree?I am again going through some notes made years ago when trying to find all of my Ancestral Timothy Knowltons and I have not been able to place the one who died 24 Aug 1770 in Cumberland, Rhode Island.I think he is the same one who married Martha Shippe in RI on 13 or 14 August, 1760 and had:Abigail, Betty, Paul and Ephraim.For a short time, a Benjamin Knowlton of Wrentham, MA. was guardian to Betty but it was a hardship and a new Guardian was named (Nathaniel Shepard) for both Betty and sister Abigail.(Is "Betty" aka Bethia?)
I know this Timothy is not one of mydirect lines of Timothy Knowlton(s) but if I can put him someplace, it might help with the rest of my unsolved mysteries.I am still trying to find a wife of my Timothy Knowlton born 1720 and find where/when his parents died: Timothy Knowlton who md. Hannah Storey.Fortunately there are now so many online MA VRs to view it is easier to track them, but still awfully hard to prove/disprove those Knowlton genealogies...sooo many errors, mis-information and/or lack of any information.
