In light of Susan's wonderful new discovery I am going to try this again:>)
Does ANYONE have any clue at all that might lead to the discovery of a first marriage for Jonathon RAINSFORD who was son of Edward and Abigail BALCH, b say 1708-1718 and who married VERY late Hannah BACON, widow of Jabez HYDE in 1759? Hannah was the dau of Henry and Hannah WOODWARD BACON b 1721. Jonathon's siblings married: Hannah m David READ; Solomon m Waitstill ADAMS; Nathan m Esther?; Richard m Zerviah NORWOOD and Joseph m Joanna WOOD GIBSON as Susan has discovered!
