Hello,Derek. Yes, it does seem this is the same line. I've come along quite a bit in my research since I last posted. I had based the children's names on a transcription that had some errors. John and Martha's children were : -Melatiah (not Matilda) born 1837, died May 16,1901. Married Ellen (?) -Jesse Mustoe born 1839 died Dec. 22,1902 married Emma Russell -Miriam A. (possibly Alice)-my great-grandmother born September,1843 died Sept. 21,1928 married (1) George Peacey (2) Alonzo Watkins - Walter Henry born 1849.
Martha's maiden name was Westmancoat.I understand Westmacott is a variant of Westmancoat (or vice versa).
I did not know about Matilda Smith and her son with John, William George Peacey. He would be a half brother to my great-grandmother Miriam, so yes indeed we are related! How many generations are you removed from William George? Anyone else out there recognise these two intertwined lines?
