It has been my understanding that Philemon Larrimore was the father of both Richard and James.He supposedly was born about 1736 in Maryland and married Mary Garrett.I don't have a marriage date.
James being my husband's ancestor, I show his birthdate as about 1776 and he married 1st Mary Harrison about 1798.By this marriage he supposedly had three boys and two girls.He married 2nd Martha "Patsy" Benningfield on Feb. 28, 1811 and their son George Washington Larremore was born Feb. 18, 1812 and subsequently had two more sons and two daughters.
I understood that Richard was James' brother and that he married Patsy Benningfield's sister, Mary "Polly" Benningfield.
Now I have read in this forum that Richard married a Nancy Perkins and they had a son Richard that married Polly Benningfield.In that case, either Polly must have been quite a bit younger than Patsy, or she must have been quite a bit older than her husband Richard.Since I don't have any dates for either of the Richards or Polly I am quite confused.Would someone please set me straight here?
In the past I have only tried to keep my husband's direct line.But now I have started trying to keep brothers and sisters straight and it is very confusing.I would appreciate any help you good people can give me.Thanks. Glenda
