I need one more piece of "primary" proof/evidence and the Mayflower folks will sign my husbands application, since I have proven everything else.
What I need is to find proof that Susanna Packard born abt. 1757 and died Apr 02, 1801 who married Theophilus Foster Jun 22, 1775 is the daughter of Sarah (Johnson) Packard.I can prove Joseph as her father. But so far nothing "primary" proving Sarah as her mother.
What I need: Susanna's birth record, baptism record, family bible listing her birth or Joseph's or Sarah's will? mentioning "my daughter Susanna" would be ideal proof. Or Sarah (maybe Joseph) having some other document mentioning grandson Elijah Dwight Foster, or son in law Theophilus Foster or Rebecca or David's will mentioning great grandson Elijah Dwight Foster. Or some document from any of Susanna's 10 children mentioning grandmother Sarah. Susanna's children--Elijah, Doroty, Theodore, Jedediah, Abigal, Sarah, Clarissa, Lydia, Peregrine or Susan
I have located where Joseph and Sarah are buried and have gotten their burial records, I am have photos of the headstones. I have a very horrible copy of a deed signed by them both (working on getting a better copy) on April 10, 1781. Have located where Susanna is buried, I have photos of the headstones of Winslow, Levi, and Susanna plus thiers wives and children since they are all buried together.I have a copy of Charlotte Fike Packard book and it is the only written material that I have seen listing all of Joseph and Sarah's children, showing Susanna, but not good enough for Mayflower folks :(
Again any help you might be able to provide would be greatly appreciated.
