Re: Blanche Mercer married Thomas Babb
Referencing Jean Sargent's Book "Babb Families of America" 3rd edition pg.113.The Thomas Babb who married Blanch Mercer was born Jun 14, 1740 and died Nov 18, 1779.Blanch was the daughter of Edward Mercer and Mary Lemon and perhaps a niece of Margaret Mercer who married Philip; Thomas's father. Blanch was born Jun 14, 1742 and died Sep 1, 1821 at 79 years of age. They had nine children and a couple of the given names are the same but none of the dates of birth come even close to matching.It looks like through coincidence we have two Thomas Babb and Margaret Mercer files.It will be inteesting to hear the comment of others. As the chinese say "It's a puzzlement".
