Karla - thanks for the reply.Here's my question -- Was Samuel Noyes Pettingell's first wife, Mary Knight, previously married?Was Knight her maiden name or married name?I found her name with a Mrs. notation in the Essex Co. Vital Records CD when she married Samuel (1 Aug 1745).If she was married before, do we know her maiden name and/or who her first husband was?
Also, I'm thinking of trying to get a reprint of the Pettingell book. Can you tell me if it includes a Mary Pettingell Kilborn, b. 1817, Newbury.She was the daughter of Jedediah Kilborn IV(b. ~1768, son of Jedediah III and ____)and Mary Knight Pettingell (b. 1794, daughter of David Pettingell and Sarah Chase)?Thanks for all your help.Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving.-Suzanne
