Phil - any all other interested Timpany/Moshier genealogists.Here are some different pieces to our common puzzle - some that I have put together and some that need to be completed!First the missing links: #1. Who was John Timpany married to? I find no mention of John's wife anywhere and she is not buried with the rest of the family (to the rear of the Mead homestead on Bible Street)#2 What did Obadiah Mead die of after being married to Lois Todd Mead for only three years. #3 Why is Lois Todd Mead Holly buried with her daughter Mary Mead Timpany and not either of her two husbands. #4 Where is Obadiah Mead b.2/20/1718, Greenwich, CT, d. 4/27/1759 buried? #5 Where was Michael Cox Timpany born - and who were his parents?
Now answers to some of the riddles.Lois Todd Mead Holly b.5/13/1732 d.5/22/1812 was married by her father, Abraham Todd b. 2/2/1710 d. 12/17/1772, son of Jonah Todd and Hannah Clarke,who was the Minister of the Congregational Church in Greenwich. He was part of the New Haven colony that moved down to Greenwich.Her mother was Hannah Dickermans also of the New Haven Colony.
Yes, Louisa and Elvira were sisters: children of John and grandchildren of Michael.Louisa (Lois) was named after her grandmother Lois Todd Mead Holly.
Myfather, Ira John Moshier tells a storythat the three unmarried daughters of John, Elivra, Hannah and Adelice were each given shares in the homestead in return for caring for him in his old age.
Also the Obadiah Mead that fought in the Revolutionary War was born in 1759 (when our Obadiah married Lois in 1756 so unfortunately it was another Greenwich Obadiah Mead who fought in the Revolution.
Our Lois Timpany Moshier was a Methodist as was her father John.
