Jean, Thank you very much for your reply.I consider a diary a very good source.I have been puzzling over the possibility of Ruth Little b. 1726, daughter of Anthony Little b. 1685 and Mary Ladner b. 1689 being married to William Pettyjohn II b. 1716.If that is true, then their son, William III b. 1751 and married to Constance Little b. 1752 (dau. of Abraham Little b. 1717 and Mary Acken b. 1732) would be first cousins since Abraham and Ruth are brother and sister.Ruth was the fifth child of Anthony and Mary and Abraham was sixth.William Pettyjohn III died in 1789 so Ruth could have remarried in 1802.This Pettyjohn/Little intermarriage is very confusing.I'll keep working on it.Thanks again.
