Unfortunately without seeing the Sassafrass Meeting records (which are missing) we don't know if Ann Berry was the Partner, her mother (or other relative) or one of the community elders/ministers. Most often a charge of sexual misconduct was presented to the meeting by a third party and since there is no disownment of a woman for having children out of wedlock in the Cecil MM or Third Haven MM at that time, one can speculate that the Partner may have been a non-quaker. Susanna is sent to Wilmington (I'm guessing to live with relatives)in early 1768, age 10, I suppose shortly after the death of her mother. The first two children are never named or mentioned in the quaker records beyond saying that Nathan, Wife and 3 children were received Oct 13 1762 at Cecil MM. My guess is that they were boys and therefore unlike Susanna stayed with their father. I hope to have a chance to look at an index for court records in 1770-1773, as I suspect from the timing that Nathan was brought up on Bastardry charges. Susanna returned to Cecil in 1773, either because there was now a woman in the household (Phebe) or because the family was preparing to move away because of the court case. Phebe answers the charges of Marriage Out of Unity, but there is no record of Nathan answering charges, so he is out of the Quakers. If they moved to Harford or Montgomery Co., then the later marriages at West River, MD (Eliza dau.of David & Jane to Richard Dawson 1818) and Baltimore, MD (Daniel to Achsah Arnold 1842)could be descendents who were still Quakers through admittance based on their step-mother. But this is mostly speculation at this time simply to try to quess which types of records I need to look for.
