Purely for sake of discussion:I've been sifting through sites like Ancestry.com, RootsWeb, FamilySearch, and (of course) this forum, and have put together my "working hypothesis" for Robert-the-immigrant's family.(I am, unfortunately, not in the position at the moment to go traveling halfway across the country to Maryland to dig through the old records properly....)

Robert married (2nd) 28 February 1723/AA Co, MD to Elizabeth CURRY (dates unknown); no children.

I realize much of this info can only be "carved in marshmellow" unless & until proofs are presented; there is much conflicting info "out there".
Proofs/disproofs/thoughts & general discussion welcome & appreciated.
